Update On Why WWE Changed Apollo’s Name

It’s been confirmed that WWE dropped “Crews” from Apollo’s name due to school shooter Nikolas Cruz, who murdered 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL on Valentine’s Day last month.

Daniel Wood of Sportskeeda previously reported that WWE wanted to avoid any collusion to Cruz, despite the different spelling, and that Vince McMahon made the decision to change Apollo’s name. That report was later questioned but The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports this week that people who have seen internal company emails confirm that the change was made due to Cruz.

The reason for the name change wasn’t supposed to get out, which is why WWE originally told The Observer that they never released the information to any media source, but they never denied the story.
