WWE World Heavyweight Champion Apollo Crews vs. Pete Dunne

Updated: Mar 31

Former United Kingdom Champion and Year V Royal Rumble winner Pete Dunne has earned the opportunity to attempt to unseat "The Diamond" at the pinnacle of the sports entertainment world when he challenges Apollo Crews for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Returning from a self inflicted sabbatical following his crushing loss to then-WWE Champion Rusev back at Survivor Series Year IV, The Bruiserweight entered the Royal Rumble at No.17 and overcame being dropped on his head with a sick piledriver from the apron to the floor, overcame the pain and last eliminated Daniel Bryan to win the titular match and earned his opportunity

The very same night, Apollo Crews maintained his position as the face of the WWE when he thwarted the challenge of "The Prince" Finn Balor with the aid of a low blow to retain the title and a month later retained his title during a special edition of Monday Night Carnage - "Gold Rush" - when he defeated longtime rival Kofi Kingston in a brutal match that once again saw Crews need assistance to retain the title with the aid of an exposed turnbuckle

After taking care of Eric Young during Carnage: Gold Rush, Dunne confronted Crews the same way the champion confronted him following his Rumble victory, making it known that his path is clear for the showdown - But that wasn't the case when The Rebellion struck and laid out both men and forced both of them to unite in an attempt at revenge when Dunne and Crews battled Daniel Bryan and Rusev in a No Disqualification match but Crews once again revealed his true colors when he laid of his WrestleMania opponent with a steel chair - costing them the match - and then left the challenger writhing in pain with a Powerbomb off the apron.
