After some time out of the limelight even after being drafted on Friday Night SmackDown, Apollo Crews returned to television and immediately got involved in a feud with Big E for the title of Intercontinental Champion. It is an important step forward for him, and a fairly ambitious program, considering how evident it is that WWE has great ideas for Big E.
Precisely for this reason, the former US Champion does not want to be caught unprepared by this new opportunity. This storyline could in fact prove to be crucial even for Crews himself, who has always had areas he has to work on.
And he himself said he was perfectly aware of what they are, as we understand from the recent interview he gave to 'Comicbook.com' "I'm working hard to grow up on mic promos and stuff, it's something I'm working very hard on.
I want to be more fun. some great moves. Do you understand what I mean? I think the entertainment component is a huge part of this business and it's a huge part of getting people to follow you, and your fan base to grow. Plus, it helps fans to relate to you."
Apollo Crews wants to work on his promos
Since his debut on the WWE main roster, basically, all the insiders have agreed that the only, real, big limitation of Apollo Crews was his ability to be convincing on the microphone.
And the former member of Titus Worldwide with these words proved to have learned his lesson. "This is what people really gravitate towards, it's when they see who you are as a character," he said. "For all of these reasons I feel it's something that is very important for me to work on.
It will allow me to build a larger fan base. great" "I also want to do it for the people who appreciate me and want to see me grow up. That work on my character is really, really, really important, and it's something I've been focusing on a lot.
That's something I'd love to be able to show more in 2021 in the ring. This side of me," he concluded. Apollo Crews was receiving a push on RAW, and he picked up the United States title. Paul Heyman’s removal as Executive Director of the red brand saw Crews drop the title and get shuffled over to SmackDown.
He is finally getting more screen time after many weeks off the television. We’ll have to see what he has to say the next time they hand him a microphone, but he is aiming to impress.
