Coming off of successfully defending the NXT Championship at In Your House, Bron Breakker appeared on tonight’s NXT 2.0 and asked who is next to challenge him for the title. Answering the call was former WWE Intercontinental and United States Champion Apollo Crews.

Crews spent several years on the NXT brand before being called up to Monday Night Raw in 2016. After thanking the crowd for their warm welcome, Crews told credited Breakker for his rise in NXT and said they’ll cross paths for the title soon, but until then, Crews will see him around.

In 2021, Crews donned the ‘Nigerian Royalty’ character that kicked off his reign as Intercontinental Champion. He lost his title in August and that following October, was moved to Monday Night Raw as a part of the WWE Draft. Crews had been paired with Commander Azeez since last year.

This past February, Crews stated that he would love an NXT return and felt his first run was cut short.
