Apollo Crews will defend his WWE United States Title against Bobby Lashley at WWE Payback.
WWE confirmed the bout on Monday afternoon.
Apollo Crews may have prevailed over MVP, but that doesn’t mean he’s seen the last of The Hurt Business.
Crews will have to go through The Hurt Business’ All Mighty when defends his United States Championship against Bobby Lashley at WWE Payback.
Warring with MVP for months, Crews has become the primary target of his loquacious rival’s newly formed battalion. The fast-rising champion turned aside MVP’s best at SummerSlam, but Lashley represents an entirely different challenge with his unparalleled strength.
And few know of Lashley’s brute power better than Crews, who was out of action for weeks after being injured by The All Mighty’s Full Nelson.
Can Crews keep his first-ever title reign rolling, or will Lashley bring the gold home to The Hurt Business?
