Mark Henry Thinks Apollo Crews Needs "More Bells And Whistles" To Reach The Next Level In WWE
He's not "a fully-fledged Jedi Knight" yet...
Since moving to Monday Night Raw, Apollo Crews has received a mini push. He opened his account on the red brand with a 27-minute match against Aleister Black and he almost won the United States Championship on this week's episode of Raw. However, he picked up a storyline injury in the match and has since been forced to withdraw from the Men's Money In The Bank Ladder match.
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry was asked about Crews and if he thinks he has the talent to be a star in WWE.
The World's Strongest Man said: "I think talent-wise Apollo Crews, and that's one of the reasons why I went and sought him out and brought him to the WWE is the talent. And during that time, he had somebody else that was talking which was Rich Swann. Which I brought in too. And that didn't work out but nonetheless, Apollo's stayed and is doing his thing and I want to see Apollo with more bells and whistles.
"I think Apollo needs a manager. I think Apollo needs a dominant storyline. He's got something over somebody's head, there's got to be extra things and it's no disrespect to him. It's just that my knowledge of the force, if you will, is strong and I feel like his is not yet at the level of a fully-fledged Jedi Knight…There's still room for improvement."
