Welp. Now I know who to root for.
Apollo Crews snapped after losing to Shinsuke Nakamura on the Feb. 19 SmackDown. Already frustrated by Big E’s refusal to grant him another Intercontinental title shot, when the champ prevented him from continuing his post-match attack on Nakamura, Crews assaulted E with the ring steps.
The New Day member was stretchered out of ThunderDome.
On Talking Smack this morning, Kayla Braxton provided an update on E’s condition:
“Big E has suffered a brachial plexus injury that’s resulted in temporary arm weakness. He is currently convalescing at home.”
Braxton tried to get Crews to provide an explanation for his actions, but he just stared into the camera. Kayla’s co-host Paul Heyman wondered aloud if Apollo was finally listening to his counsel and being influenced by the time he spent with Roman Reigns on SmackDown back in January. Crews just grinned, offered a nod, and left - a message Heyman said he would take back to his Tribal Chief.
Will Crews finally take a seat at Reigns’ Table? I don’t know, but I do know Large Epsilon is gonna be gunning for revenge.
As soon as he gets strength back in his arm, that is.
