Apollo Crews says he is not going to pass up this opportunity.  He says he considers himself to be the underdog since he has been around the WWE for only two months.  Sometimes the impossible becomes possible.

Sheamus fixes his hair and mustache and he says he does not know why Apollo Crews is in this match.  He has a secret, he is glad Apollo is.  As much fun that he is going to have winning the title from Rusev, he is going to have as much fun kicking off Crews’ head.
