– WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley wrote the following on Facebook this week after watching Apollo Crews in action on NXT:

DID I JUST SEE THAT? That’s what I kept asking myself while catching up on NXT last night, and seeing Apollo Crews in action. While the road to stardom to WWE can be paved with roadblocks – both physical and psychological – I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see this man playing a major role on WWE Raw, Smackdown and PPV for years to come.

Foley also responded to fan feedback on the former Uhaa Nation in the comments:

I think the major consensus is this guy is a rising star, and if a few breaks fall in his favor, the sky seems to be the limit for him in WWE. As is usually the case, finding the right opponents, and creating memorable programs – as opposed to having a good series of random matches – is the key to really breaking through in sports entertainment.
