-- Apollo Crews has his full name back again.
Last night on Raw, the chyron for Apollo listed his full name for the first time in two months. His bio on WWE.com’s website also has him back as Apollo Crews. Back in February, his name was shortened to just Apollo for reasons that were never made entirely clear. There was speculation that it may have been due to the Parkland, Florida shooter having a similar last name, though that was never outright confirmed.
Crews and the rest of Titus Worldwide came out last night to welcome Dolph Ziggler, who had just been traded from SmackDown. Titus invited Ziggler to join the group. As he was contemplating, Drew McIntyre came in and laid out Crews, headbutting him. The new team attacked both Titus and Crews, laying out Crews with a zig zag/Claymore kick combination.
Crews has been mostly teaming with Titus O’Neil ever since joining Raw in last year’s Superstar Shakeup.
-- While he'll be using a different name this time, the former Chris Hero is headed back to PROGRESS Wrestling for one of their biggest weekend's of the year.
PROGRESS announced NXT's Kassius Ohno as the latest entrant for this year's Super Strong Style 16 tournament today. It will take place at Alexandra Palace in London on May 5-7, with the winner receiving a future title shot.
As Hero, Ohno also appeared in the 2016 edition of Super Strong Style 16. He lost to Tommy End (now Aleister Black) in the semifinals.
This won't be the first time that Ohno has wrestled for a WWE-friendly promotion since returning to NXT. He made an appearance for ICW last September and was defeated by Joe Coffey.
With one more entrant still to be announced, Pete Dunne, Keith Lee, Zack Sabre Jr., Doug Williams, Angelico, Mark Andrews, Flash Morgan Webster, Chuck Mambo, Chris Brookes, Jordan Devlin, Joey Janela, TK Cooper, David Starr, Tyler Bate, and Ohno make up the field for this year's Super Strong Style 16. Travis Banks won the tournament in 2017 and went on to win the PROGRESS Championship from Dunne.
Everything that is happening in the wrestling world.
