Some good can actually come from this because Titus has personality, so if some of it can rub off on Crews he might get more over.

The idea that Apollo would want the help of the Titus Brand when it's achieved nothing so far is kinda funny too.

It could be a light hearted and enjoyable short term mid card storyline. They might even end up tag team partners after growing to like eachother like Sheamus/Cesaro started out.

I actually like this pairing, Apollo Crewes badly needs something doing with his wooden character, Titus is a entertaining character with charisma, he's pretty ropey in the ring but I think as a manager/mouth-piece for Apollo he could work well, they could even team on occasion but I think the way forward is to push Crewes as a singles guy with Titus handling his promos.

Unfortunately I get the feeling this may have just been a way to set a match between the two which would be a forgettable low card offering. Far better to create a alliance between the two.

It seems like right now WWE is just teasing the idea of Apollo joining up with Titus. But without giving Apollo any sort of reason to consider siding with Titus.

Now had Apollo lost his match against Curt Hawkins (even if it was done as a fluke schoolboy or whatever). And then Apollo goes on a bit of a losing streak, it would make sense that he might consider joining with Titus. But Apollo is going to keep winning against bottom-card guys, then it makes no sense.

However WWE's current creative team doesn't seem to care about ever making sense.

It's being teased but after the match on Raw it seemed Apollo was at least considering the alliance with Titus. At 40 years old and with limited success as a in ring worker perhaps WWE are now thinking Titus is better served as a non-wrestling character who can assist the career of a younger talent who at this point is fairly weak with his promos and character.

I think it's a smart move, Crewes can go in the ring and has a great look but his character and verbal skills are as dull as they come, putting him a entertaining guy like Titus O'Neill could work and it seemed the announcers were also putting over the fact that AC has all the potential but just needs a way to tap in to it.

More entertainment between them. Creative appear to have found something worthwhile for the pair of them.

They could be a good babyface tag team and Titus can help Apollo show more personality, for when they do split down the line.

With New Day moved to Smackdown there is an opening there for a comedy face team on Raw.

Reports are saying WWE have given up on Titus as a wrestler and moving forward he will be used similar to how Abraham Washington was in the past, in other words a mouth-piece who can take bumps.

I think using them as heels and seeing a more aggressive side of Apollo Crewes is what's needed.

It's a shame that after an initial push they are now jobbing every week.

I don't mind one jobbing, but when both in the team are it doesn't make booking sense.

You could have one always win, one always lose and the jobber getting annoyed at the big difference in their win/loss records.

Yeah I don't know why they are not pushing Apollo Crewes more. His flashy athletic ring skill is over with the crowd and the fans enjoy the Titus Brand gimmick.

All I can think is Apollo is still very young and he's just paying his dues, but it will be hard to ever really establish him as a credible talent with this many clean losses in the lower-card.

They can only be building to a feud with Titus - frustrated that the brand has done nothing for him because like you say with so many clean losses he has zero momentum and is being used as filler every single week
