#1 Best: There’s something intriguing about WWE SmackDown star Apollo Crew’s slow-burn heel turn
The first heel turn of the night came from WWE SmackDown star Apollo Crews, who has been showing heelish tendencies thus far but has not embraced the darkness within him yet. In fact, this week, he even made a reference to his ancestors belonging to Nigerian Royalty, which immediately gives him a distinct persona, separating him from the pack.
We have always known that Apollo Crews can do moves that the human mind cannot even conceive. We’ve also known that he’s not been averse to bending the rules before, and was even spotted backstage with Roman Reigns not long ago.That said, the attack that he launched on Big E this week, which meant that the Intercontinental Champion had to be stretchered out, was a long-time coming and a culmination of weeks of interesting developments.This is the best that the young man from Nigeria has looked in his whole WWE career, and a grudge match against Big E will be absolute money.
