As seen during night two of WrestleMania 37 on Sunday night, Apollo defeated Big E. with the help of the massive man formerly known as Dabbo-Kato, to capture the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
Following the victory, Apollo and the big man spoke with Alyse Ashton for an exclusive post-match interview backstage at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, and while he did not reveal the name of his monster, he did say we will find out more about him soon.
“It does not matter,” when asked who he is. “The fact is that I won the Intercontinental Championship. Look at the size of this man, but don’t worry about that. You’ll find out who this is later.”
Additionally, the new I-C champ dedicated his big victory in the first-ever Nigerian Drum Fight on “The Grandest Stage of Them All” to all of his family, friends and fans in Nigeria.
“Right now what matters is that Apollo Crews did exactly what he said he was going to do and that is win the Intercontinental Championship,” he said. “I beat Big E in his hometown, I beat Big E in front of all of his family, in front of everybody he played high school football with, in front of all of them and the best thing about it is now… now my ancestors can rejoice, now my family can dance. I made them proud, and now I am the Intercontinental Champion. This one… this one is for Nigeria.”
