Apollo Crews back to using full name in WWE
WWE is once again referring to Apollo Crews by his full name as of RAW last night, a change that is now being reflected on his official WWE.com profile.
Michael Cole and the commentary team also began referring to him by his former full name during a segment involving Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre officially becoming part of the RAW roster during the first night of the Superstar Shake-up.
Back in February, WWE quietly dropped the “Crews” from his name and he was simply referred to as Apollo going forward. While not confirmed, the speculation was WWE made the temporary change due to the name of the Parkland, Florida shooter.
