Apollo Crews Gets a WrestleMania IC Title Rematch Against Big E

Apollo Crews may now speak with a Nigerian accent, but otherwise the WWE Superstar appears to be trapped in some kind of neverending loop where he challenges Big E for the WWE Intercontinental Championship over and over and over again, and despite losing each time, continues to get new rematches. In the latest news, Crews will face Big E once again on the grandest stage of them all at WrestleMania. However, based on everything we've seen between these two so far, there's no reason not to believe that they wouldn't also face each other at the next PPV, and the one after that, and the one after that as well. Hell, this rematch is booked for WrestleMania night 2, but why not also have one on WrestleMania night 1? Why not have Big E and Apollo Crews fight at every WWE show until the day one of them dies, and after that, the surviving wrestler can perform the match solo in honor of their fallen opponent for the rest of their days. It makes sense, right? At least, it seems to if you're a WWE booker.

A press release on WWE.com contains the details:

Big E and Apollo Crews have pushed each other to new levels, but a WrestleMania rematch will bring the rivalry to all new heights.

The Intercontinental Champion scored a win over Crews at WWE Fastlane, but the Nigerian warrior unleashed fury on his opponent with a brutal post-match beatdown. Crews secured the latest victory in a Six-Man Tag Team Match alongside Otis & Chad Gable against The Powerhouse of Positivity & The Street Profits.

Will Big E meet Crews' vicious tactics? Or will the challenger realize his championship dreams at The Showcase of the Immortals?
