Those rumors about WWE giving Apollo Crews a major push turned out to be true after all. The developmental wrestler has now been named the number one contender to the NXT Championship currently held by Finn Balor. Crews leapfrogged over several other performers, including Tyler Breeze and Samoa Joe, to get that highly coveted spot. The belief is that there is a very good chance of him winning the championship soon.

Since 2K Sports and WWE both want to increase the number of copies sold, the decision has been made to eliminate some of the features on the game so that the roster can be the biggest one ever. The feeling is that the additional wrestlers are going to be the main draw. This also means that we are going to see more of the NXT stars in the game, so guys like Tyler Breeze and Kevin Owens should be included in the next edition.

It was long rumored that WWE was going to use NXT performers at Wrestlemania before the front office decided to load up the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal with known wrestlers on the main roster. Well, it has now been revealed that one of the spots will be given to a developmental wrestler. During Axxess, a tournament will be held with Adrian Neville, Finn Balor, Hideo Itami and Tyler Breeze to determine the spot filler.

However, the flamboyant star is being evaluated by management this week. He worked matches at live events over the weekend. No word yet on when he will be promoted, but management really loves his dedication to the character.
