Apollo Crews has been in the spotlight since moving over to Monday Night RAW and coming under Paul Heyman’s wing post-WrestleMania 36. After a couple of impressive performances, Crews managed to book his spot in the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match but was eventually pulled from the PPV due to a kayfabe injury angle.
As previously reported, Vince McMahon has been planning a heel turn for Crews. However, there are multiple ways for The Chairman to give effect to that plan.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Crews could be joining the green stable managed by veteran MVP. At present, Brendan Vink and Shane Thorne are the only two Superstars working with MVP, and Crews could become the third member of the highly talented group.
“Crews was giving off heel tendencies on last week’s Raw and it’s been speculated he will be part of a stable headed by MVP that would also include Brendan Vink & Shane Thorne. We’ve been given the impression that is one of several options considered for Crews but it is not necessarily the end direction.”
Meanwhile, WWE is also keeping a watchful eye on Riddick Moss. The former 24/7 Champion hasn’t been on TV since WWE relocated its shows to the Performance Center, but just because he isn’t working during the pandemic doesn’t necessarily mean he will be thrown to the back of the line.
According to The Observer, Moss being a well-built guy has a promising future in the company, and his absence doesn’t quite indicate that WWE has given up on him. Rather, the WWE creative is simply focusing on other storylines at the moment.
“Add Riddick Moss to the list of guys who have disappeared with the new normal. His not being there is not indicative that they’ve given up on him.”
