• “I couldn’t answer to save my life” – Apollo Crews On John Cena’s Question
During a recent appearance on WWE’s After The Bell podcast, former United States Champion Apollo Crews talked about not having a character when he debuted on the WWE main roster.
Crews had a discussion with WWE Legend John Cena regarding this and Crews had no answer.
Here’s what he said:
“When I first got to the main roster, John Cena was still working and he’d always pull me aside and be like ‘Who is Apollo Crews?’
At the time, I’m like the most generic [wrestler], so embarrassing when I even think about it and it’s like ‘I’m this guy, I work hard and …’ and he’s like ‘Everybody works hard, but who are you?’ I couldn’t answer to save my life, and it literally took me 6 years.
I’m trying to figure out who is Apollo Crews and I didn’t know. I felt so embarrassed to the point where I’d almost avoid trying to have conversations with him because I know he’s going to ask me again today and I don’t have an answer for him.
You got John Cena asking you these questions and I’m sitting here like I can’t come up [with an answer], it’s pretty ridiculous. I realized it’s not always about how good you are in the ring, it’s like what drives this person, who are you?”
Crews now has the “Descendant of Nigerian Royalty” character on SmackDown.
