Grayson Waller Effect

Grayson Waller introduced his special guest – Apollo Crews. The Australian star asked Crews what happened to his Nigerian accent. Crews did the accent for a bit and said that he is proud of his heritage.

Crews said that the thing is he got too caught up in his past and that’s part of why he’s here in NXT. Waller takes a question from Instagram, asking him what the visions are about, and Crews says he’s a huge visual thinker and there’s no greater force than knowing yourself.

Waller asked Crews how it feels to know that he is going to get run out of NXT. Crews asked Waller how it feels to be a low-budget version of The Miz.

Waller continued riling up Crews and finally, it led to the former Intercontinental Champion dropping the heel. Crews said that it’s the Apollo Crews effect.

Mandy Rose made her way to the stage area. She formally introduced herself and said that Davenport is standing in her ring and in her world. In her world, everyone follows her lead.

Rose explained how she is the most dominant champion and asked her to put some respect on her name. The NXT UK Women’s Champion Meiko Satomura made her way to the ring and said that she is the most dominant champion and not Rose.
