• Paul Heyman Behind New RAW Wrestler’s Recent Push

Apollo Crews recently switched brands from SmackDown to RAW and went on to defeat MVP on this week’s episode of RAW to qualify for the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder match.

According to Tom Colohue, RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman wanted to use Crews, so he brought him to RAW and is pushing him:

“He has some very strong strengths and some very clear weaknesses. He’s not used to being on the backfoot, he’s not the best seller, but his power game is great and his offense is different and he connects with the crowd when he’s in the position and has the enthusiasm.

He’s been bullied by Sheamus and bullied by Dolph Ziggler. That’s really not much of anything. There are definitely a few people who wanted to see him pushed. Paul Heyman wanted to get a hold of him on RAW.

He got him and we saw a great match with Aleister Black and he’s had a match with MVP now. While I don’t think this is his last chance, this is definitely his best chance.”
