• Return Announced For This Week’s RAW
It’s been a month since United States Champion Apollo Crews was seen on WWE TV. He last appeared on the 29th June episode of RAW, where he lost to MVP.
Crews reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, but he’s set to return to the ring on this week’s RAW and defend his United States Championship against the self proclaimed United States Champion, MVP, in a match which got cancelled at The Horror Show At Extreme Rules.
WWE has announced that the match will kick off RAW.
WWE posted the following about Crews’ return:
“Will the real United States Champion please stand up?
Apollo Crews and MVP will settle that question to kick off this Monday night’s RAW as they battle for the United States Title.
The storied prize has been clouded in controversy lately. Crews was originally set to defend the Championship against MVP at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, but wasn’t cleared to compete as a result of Bobby Lashley’s attack.
As a result, MVP declared himself the new Champion, even unveiling a new title.
With Crews ready to go — and likely fed up with the braggadocious MVP’s antics in recent weeks — can he finally silence his boisterous rival? Or will MVP solidify his claim to the gold?”
