Apollo Crews Hails NXT For Restoring His Passion For Wrestling
Apollo Crews recently returned to NXT after six years on WWE’s Main Roster
When Apollo Crews returned to WWE NXT earlier this year, it was seen as a refresh for a wrestler who was wholly misused during his six years on WWE’s main roster.
During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Crews admitted that the move back to NXT has restored his passion for the business:
“Yeah, it’s crazy for me. It’s so different coming back. It’s one of those things… Am I going to be accepted? Does it matter if I’m accepted or a bunch of different feelings, but it’s like that stepping into a whole new locker room where even though I’ve been here for some time, it’s still a brand-new situation,” said Crews. “But it’s been fun. It’s been really fun and the moment I came back, we got right into it. I had a tag with Solo [Sikoa] against Grayson [Waller] and Carmelo [Hayes] and we went out there and had some fun. So it’s been really fun just to have the opportunity, almost a second chance at my career to I guess go back to where it began and find myself again I guess you could say. And just having that opportunity, it’s been a blessing and I’m really enjoying myself.
"It’s nice because I’ve gotten to become a fan again, you know what I mean? And really, not that I stopped being a fan, but the love, the passion had kind of faded away a little bit. Now that that’s back, it’s nice because I want to watch wrestling again. I want to interact and I want to be a part of everything that’s going on. It’s great, and it feels good because for a while there I just got stuck not really doing anything and nobody wants to be in that situation. So it’s been a blessing and I’ve been having a lot of fun.”
