WWE's current Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews wasn't featured at Money in the Bank and didn't defend his title against anyone at the event. This was mostly because the few worthy competitors for Crews' title participated in the Money in the Bank ladder match.
It seems that Crews now has some direction again in WWE and there are a handful of superstars who can step up to him (and try to step up to Commander Azeez).
Here are five challengers for Apollo Crews' WWE Intercontinental Title:
#5. King Nakamura wants the gold from Apollo Crews.
Nakamura recently won the crown and the title 'King' by defeating former King of the Ring winner Baron Corbin. But being a 'King' in WWE isn't that a big deal. It's certainly not as big as a deal being Intercontinental Champion and 'King' at the same time
#4. Bronson Reed becomes Roman Reigns' ally after beating Apollo Crews.
'The Colossal' Bronson Reed is yet to make his official main roster debut on either RAW or smackdown, but he should do so by going after Apollo Crews. Obviously, he's made a main roster debut on WWE Main Event, but that doesn't really count.
The former NXT North American Champion should enter straight into the mid-card or even main event picture when he debuts, and it certainly looks like SmackDown could do with more star power.
Plus, Reed has already highlighted that he'd be interested in joining forces with Roman Reigns and The Usos while being the Intercontinental Champion.
#3. Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler work together to get the title from Apollo Crews
