The Lone Wolf scored a win over the fan favorite in London today as Baron Corbin scored a big win over Apollo Crews at NXT Takeover: London.
Crews had his moments in this match, but let’s call it what it really was: a way for Corbin to continue building heel heat as he climbs his way up to the main roster. The fight started with Corbin doing what he does best, beating the living hell out of opponents. He tossed Crews to the ground and even seemed to hurt his back by throwing him into the turnbuckle, and even tossed him out of the ring a few times, even shouting “You should have stayed at Ring of Honor!”
Crews then mounted a comeback and hit his signatures on Corbin, only for the Lone Wolf to kick out. There was more back-and-forth but just when another Crews comeback appeared to be happening, Corbin hit the End of Days. 1, 2, 3, PIN.
Next for Crews is probably another run at Finn Balor’s NXT Championship, while Corbin could make a push of his own to continue upping his heel heat since either he or Samoa Joe are both likely bound for the main roster soon.
