News on Apollo Crews’ New Gimmick, Drew McIntyre On Beating Kurt Angle

– Dave Meltzer discussed Apollo Crews’ new gimmick on Wrestling Observer Radio. It might not seem like much of a change, but they’re giving him a shot to show what he can do in the ring.

“So the gimmick is they’re going to push him as ‘Raw’s Highlight Reel’ so that’s his new nickname. So that’s the idea is watch Apollo Crews do cool moves — and he can do cool moves. You know he did several of them here. So that’s what he did. He did a standing moonsault […] that’s pretty much it.”

Bryan Alvarez noted that a press slam and a standing moonsault doesn’t really add up to what Seth Rollins is able to do in the ring. Apollo Crews has an incredible moveset that he perfected in the indies, but NXT did him no favors and now he’s even more discarded on the main roster. But at least they’re trying and that’s what WWE has decided for him to do.

Drew McIntyre tweeted the following on defeating WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle in the main event of last night’s RAW:

An Olympic gold medal, a hall of fame career. Accolades that would normally guarantee victory against a “normal” man. But know that I’m not a “normal man.” If you step into the ring with me, I will hurt you, I will humble you, and I will beat you. #Raw
