Apollo Crews Doesn't Feel Paul Heyman's Departure Will Hurt Him

The US Champion thinks his reliability will keep him going...

Apollo Crews's first four years on WWE's main roster didn't yield much in the way of success or a sustained push, as Crews spent most of his time on secondary programming.

That changed in recent months when then-Raw Executive Director Paul Heyman started utilizing Crews more heavily, and had him defeat Andrade for the United States title.

Heyman has since been replaced in the role by Bruce Prichard, but Crews doesn't think the change will halt his momentum.

"Since I've shown that I'm reliable, and trustworthy it doesn't necessarily matter too much so that helps me in that sense. I don't feel like it's going to work against me," Crews said in an interview with Newsweek. "Working with Heyman was fantastic. He was so hands-on with me and he helped me a lot. He was one of the main reasons for me getting this opportunity and I'm very thankful for everything he's done for me and helped me with.

"All I could do is look toward the future and I'm looking forward to working with Bruce as well. We're going to make magic together and I'm excited for what's to come and where I'm at right now."

Crews will defend the US title against MVP at Extreme Rules this Sunday.
