Apollo Crews and Commander Azeez will be part of the NXT roster moving forward. 

According to a report from PW Insider, both wrestlers have been officially moved to the brand. Crews appeared on Tuesday's show from the WWE Performance Center and confronted NXT Champion, Bron Breakker. 

While Azeez did not accompany Crews in his segment with Breakker, he has also been officially moved to the NXT roster. There is no word on if the two will continue to be aligned on the show or not. 

Crews was originally with NXT from October 2014 until being called up to the main roster following WrestleMania 32 in 2016. He is a one time former Intercontinental Champion and a one time former United States Champion. 

Azeez joined WWE in 2016 and made his main roster debut in 2018 as part of The Greatest Royal Rumble from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He helped Crews win the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania 37 and the two have been aligned since.
