• Rumor Killer On WWE Changing RAW Wrestler’s Name Again
As seen on this week’s RAW, Apollo Crews came out and take down Elias. You can watch it below:
Some reports came out which stated that WWE changed Apollo’s name once again from ‘Apollo’ to ‘Apollo Crews’ this week.
However, that’s not the case. There was no change made to Crews’ name this week.
He debuted on the main roster as ‘Apollo Crews’ and then his name was changed to just ‘Apollo’ due to an incident.
However, his name was changed back to ‘Apollo Crews’ back in April and it hasn’t been changed since.
