Apollo Crews defeated Big E for the Intercontinental Championship in their WrestleMania Nigerian Drum Fight. Crews was assisted in the match by a returning Dabba-Kato, now known as Commander Azeez.
This match will give an indication as to the future of the IC Title. While we could witness Big E’s retaliation, the bout could mark the beginning of a new rivalry.
