Apollo Crews loses his last name on WWE roster page


The WWE name-shortening machine has apparently struck again.

Apollo Crews' name has been shortened to just Apollo on's roster page. This hasn't been reflected on television yet, as last week Apollo was still being referred to as Apollo Crews, but that may change on tonight's program.

This would be the latest person to have their name altered on the main roster. Others who have lost their names in the past include Adrian Neville, Antonio Cesaro, Alexander Rusev, Big E Langston, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Elias Samson, and a bevy of others.

Apollo, real name Sesugh Uhaa, was signed by WWE in 2014. The following year, he was renamed Apollo Crews and worked in the NXT developmental program until he was called up in April of 2016. Since the brand split, he's worked both brands and has most recently appeared on Raw. He was a part of the fatal five-way match last week that would determine the final entrant in this Sunday's Elimination Chamber match.
