[8.0] "Apollo Crews is a very good wrestler. His moonsault is very impressive and the way he performs it is amazing for a guy his size. The only problem I have with him is that he doesnt have a good character or even a character at all. He could also be a little better on the mic. Besides that I think he is very good and could be WWE Champion one day."

[7.0] "It's infuriating that Apollo Crews, of all people, was promoted to the main roster too early. This guy is great in the ring, combining high-flying with powerhouse moves with technical wrestling, and there's little he can't do. He's naturally likeable and charismatic; a born babyface. The only thing he lacks is the ability to cut a decent promo, and if they'd improved his character work in NXT for a while, he would have arrived on Raw as a surefire main-eventer. Now, though, he's in a tricky spot -- and it's up to Apollo whether he sinks or swims from here. He's the kind of guy fans want to like, but he needs to give them a reason to care. He's got to find more of a gimmick and present more personality on the microphone. If he does, I honestly believe Apollo has it in him to be a multi-time world champion -- but if he doesn't, he'll be another midcard acrobat with a really nice smile."

[1.0] "Apollo Crews is a very generic dude. Even in the indies & Japan as Uhaa Nation, he didn't really stand out. He had some good matches vs. the likes of Johnny Gargano & BxB Hulk, but nothing must see. Just another generic dude who can do movez~! & flipz~! - I feel like he really needs to improve when it comes to selling & psychology."
SE Finest wrote on 12.06.2016:
[6.0] "There was a lot of hype before he came to NXT , but when he finally arrived , I just felt that he's just not that impressive. He's good in the ring, but nowhere near as good as Sami Zayn, Cesaro or Kevin Owens, add that to lack of character and mic skills, I just don't see where he is going. Definitely went to the main roster way too early too."

[8.0] "Apollo has the ability to put on great matches. His combination of power and athleticism is very rare. His mic skills aren't up to par yet but he is still very early in his WWE career."

[5.0] "Don't get all the hype behind him. He's not interesting at all, he can't talk, he lacks personality, he lacks direction and he's basically just boring..."

[5.0] "I was on the fence but after tonight's oblivion, he was brought up too early. Although a definite part of the issue is that he is young, and came from the very different Dragon Gate system, the presentation of his entrance from Raw #1200, after the fifteen minute prior beatdown from Sheamus, and to seemingly be 20% selling something dazy with an 80% opaque entrance, he's off. He's not yet WWE style. It's ironic that his previous catch-phrase "Too Easy" now reflects his lack of grit on the mainstage. I've been Wow'd by his athleticism and yet also felt like many of his so-called classics (Ricochet/Uhaa Dream Gate title match) were overrated. He's got all the tools and is effortlessly likable but he's not there yet."
The Phantom Pain wrote on 08.04.2016:
[7.0] "To be honest, I really don't want to see WWE lose this guy in the shuffle of rosters. While, I haven't seen his work as Uhaa Nation at the moment but, he's definitely an athletic powerhouse/spot guy with high-flying maneuvers. Major drawback is not a great talker on the mic and charismatic that will most likely be the Shelton Benjamin of this generation. I don't know why he was called up so soon to the main roster when its not even been at least a year (with the exception of Kevin Owens). The closest that Crews will get is the Intercontinental/United States Championships."

[9.0] "Has been improving in the ring a lot. He always entertains me when he wrestlers. He can do it all in the ring. He is pretty stiff on the mic, he can't seem to deliver any memorable promos. He has the look, he can get over with the fans with just his ring ability, but to be able to be grab the brass ring and be accepted, you need to be able to deiver a promo."
