WWE's Apollo Crews Becomes New Intercontinental Champion at WrestleMania

Many WWE fans have been wondering just what would be in store for Apollo Crews and Big E during their Nigerian Drum Fight at WrestleMania 37, and early on we got our answer. The match started off with both stars grabbing Kendo Sticks and going to town, but after several shots from both Big E got the better of the exchange. Then both stars ended up outside of the ring and feeling the pain, and eventually, Crews went to crush E between two steel steps, but Big E moved out of the way. That paved the way for Big E hitting a Uranage on Crews, slamming him onto the steel steps.

Big E then grabbed a table much to the delight of the crowd, and he put it into the ring. Big E went to put Crews on the table but Crews hit him with a huge kick and then brutalized him with a Kendo Stick several times. He put E onto the table and went for the splash but E evaded, sending Crews through the table.

Big E then went for his Big Ending but he was interrupted by a charging Dabba Kato, who powerbombed E into the mat and stunned him. He then dragged Crews over top of E and that was enough for the win.

Crews is now your Intercontinental Champion, and it would see the start of a powerful new duo has begun.
