Apollo Crews

Naming yourself after the Greek god Apollo sets one hell of a bar, but it’s fair to say Apollo Crews may well clear it when all is said and done.

Possessed of an Olympian physique and agility, the hulking Crews combines the raw power of The Ultimate Warrior with the agility of  a top cruiserweight, confounding opponents with a ground-and-pound game and dizzying aerial attack. He was already the proverbial five-tool player when he went from the independent scene to WWE NXT, and his astounding record at Full Sail sent the Georgia native to the main WWE roster within a year of his debut.

His star has only continued to rise, and the WWE Universe will soon understand what the rest of the world already knew: That Apollo Crews’ potential knows no limits, and it’s only a matter of time before he rests on the Mount Olympus of sports-entertainment.
