Apollo Crews confess that he is not satisfied with where his WWE career is right now during an interview with The Wrap.
Crews said, “I wanted to come in here and shock the world, I guess you could say. I felt like I would have done much more at this moment in my career. But I’m still young — I’m about to be 32 in a couple of days — and there’s still a lot of time. I’m still very patient and understanding in how the process works. I trust the process.”
He also stated that he hoped to turn things around by winning the King Of The Ring tournament. However, he was already eliminated from the tournament after losing to Andrade and the interview was conducted before the opening round matches on SmackDown Live.
Before Crew lost to Andrade, he had the following to say about the KOTR tournament:
“It’s a great opportunity for me, personally, because I feel like winning this tournament could help me get my career to the next level. Instead of being stuck in the same place, it’ll help me break past that plateau and get that kick-start to possibly skyrocket my career. I’m sure that’s how most of us are looking at it.”
He is the most recent WWE Superstar who has tons of talent but not being used much because he is lost in the shuffle. I am hoping that things will turn around for him soon. He could be pushed further down the card with SmackDown moving to FOX in October. Moreover, the company will be under pressure to deliver ratings for the broadcast network if WWE choose to depend heavily on their current top stars.
