Apollo Crews debuts on Raw

WWE on Twitter

The rumors said there would be several NXT folks following Baron Corbin to the main roster, and before Raw was an hour old, we got our first one.

Apollo Crews was shown meeting with General Manager-for-a-night Shane McMahon, and he met an old rival shortly thereafter. Tyler Breeze and Crews were frequent rivals down at Full Sail, and they met again on the main roster. It was a similar outcome, with Apollo getting in all of his impressive spots like the standing moonsault and spin-out powerbomb, en route to a big win.

Michael Cole, JBL and Byron Saxton were talking up this night being a show full of new stars, so we'll see who's following Crews - and if there's an endgame in place for Shane being in control (Vince left laughing about what a train wreck it would be).
