WWE's Apollo Crews Gets A New Ring Name

WWE's Apollo Crews Gets A New Ring Name”

These name changes are generally fine, if awkward at first, but it continues to be insane that WWE thinks you can't have a first name and a last name and be called one of them. More specifically, reducing a character's name is something that has been seen over the course of the sport's history.

Wood added an email was issued from WWE citing the name change and confirming the Titus Worldwide member will now be referred to simply as Apollo, because Vince McMahon never wants to hear the last name of Cruz again following the recent tragedy.

This is a right of passage we've come to expect from our favorite up-and-coming WWE stars, from (Antonio) Cesaro and Big E (Langston) to (Alexander) Rusev and (Adrian) Neville.

But what is the reason for the adaptation? The site has confirmed with a source in WWE that the decision was made by Vince McMahon in order to avoid any possible allusion to Nikolas Cruz, who carried out the assault at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida. Anything that they can do to avoid any sort of negative publicity with regards to this bad tragedy will help them in the long run.
