Apollo Crews returns to his best entrance theme, Dschinghis Khan

Apollo Crews made his return to Preston City Wrestling (PCW UK) for the 2018 installment of their Road to Glory tournament today (Feb. 10), and that in and of itself was cool enough. Even moreso since the entire thing (check out our complete results here) streamed live on! But even cooler is that rather than going with Crews’ WWE theme, they used his old one, one of the all-time great indie entrance themes, Dschinghis Khan!

Oh, and he did pretty well for himself in the tournament, too. In the first round he defeated former PCW UK Heavyweight Championship, Iestyn Rees. This moved him onto the semifinals, where he met his good friend, fellow WWA4 trainee, and Impact Wrestling superstar Moose and beat him with a standing shooting star press to make his way to the finals against reigning PCW UK Cruiserweight Champion Dean Allmark.

Allmark has, in the last few months, had to lean heavily on his mat grappling skills, embroiled as he was in a feud with top shelf technical wrestler and striker Chris Ridgeway, but against Crews in the final, he turned the heat up on his high flying and met the WWE Superstar at his own game, hold for hold and flip for flip. Apollo’s power game proved to be the deciding factor, but not in his favor, as Dean reversed his trademark standing Blue Thunder Driver into a victory roll to scoop the win and a future title shot against PCW UK Heavyweight Champion (and WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament participant) Tyson T-Bone.

There you have it, folks.

Apollo Crews came up empty at PCW UK, but given that he still has a chance to earn himself a spot in the Elimination Chamber on Monday, things are looking up. Excited for 2018 pro wrestling to keep rolling, Cagesiders?
