Sesugh Uhaa by real name also mentioned that he is a Royal Prince and people in the WWE locker room must learn to give him respect.

The former WWE United States champion went further to use "The King of Strong Style" Shinsuke Nakamura as a big example when he won a one on one match with the aid of his green and white scarf.

Meanwhile, several WWE and former WWE wrestlers were impressed by the new form of the Benue state muscular figure and they have taken time out to celebrate his new character.

Firstly it was WWE NXT talent who is also a Nigerian by the name Ezekwesiri "EJ" Nduka Jr. a.k.a Ezra Judge is a big supporter of Apollo Crews at the performance center and he made a some comments in pidgin.

"Hey Apollo Crews, NAIJA WE NEVA CARRY LAST" and his Tweet also received some rave reviews from proud Nigerians on the popular bird app.
