Nigerian wrestler Sesugh Uhaa also popularly known as Apollo Crews has done his fatherland proud after emerging as the winner of the 2021 WWE Intercontinental Champion which took place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, USA.

Apollo Crews defeated his opponent and closest rival, the Big E at the just concluded WrestleMania to emerge the overall winner in the first-ever Nigerian Drum Fight in the WWE.

He said; “It doesn’t matter how it happened, what matters is that Apollo crews did what he said he was going to do and that is win.

“I beat Big E in his hometown in front of his family and everybody.

“The best thing about it is that my ancestors can rejoice, and my family can dance.

“I made them proud and now I am the intercontinental champion, this one is for Nigeria,” he said.
