There have been questions raised regarding Apollo’s status since his move to NXT. Shawn Michaels during the post-Deadline press conference made it clear that NXT has no intention of losing Apollo Crews to the main roster.

“I, uh, I have no intention of letting him go anywhere [laughs]. I’ll say this. I don’t make the main roster decisions. I’ll say that much. For now, we love him here in NXT.


We have an absolute plan for Apollo going forward. He fell short tonight from an NXT Championship situation. But we have more to come from him in NXT. I’ll say this. Look, Apollo brings us a great deal of experience, and that’s something that we try to hold on to here for as long as we possibly can.

Obviously being out there, Bron is beneficial to us in Bron’s development. But, we feel like Apollo has a lot more knowledge and experience to help a number of other people here. So, we’d love to continue to keep him here for as long as we can and get his experience out there with as many of our young talent as we can.”

Now that Apollo has lost to Bron Breakker, it will be interesting to see what his future in NXT looks like. If tonight’s any indication, Apollo will be someone the NXT roster has to look out for in the future.
