NXT Championship Match Set For WWE NXT Deadline

Apollo Crews wants to win the NXT Championship, and he’ll aim to do so at WWE NXT Deadline.

On the November 22 episode of WWE NXT, Crews noted that the thought of his match at the show keeps him up at night. He described how he has enjoyed success in the past, but the NXT championship has eluded his grasp. Crews recalled how he stated his intent to challenge for the gold when he returned to NXT six months ago, and he stated the subsequent journey has led to this looming clash with Bron Breakker. He stated that the burden of being a champion is taking a toll on Breakker, and he had a vision of his title win.

Crews, a former WWE Intercontinental Champion, returned to NXT in June. He feuded with Grayson Waller for a number of weeks and defeated him in a Casket Match at NXT Halloween Havoc. Breakker won the NXT Championship by defeating Dolph Ziggler on the April 4 episode of WWE RAW.
