WWE Superstar Apollo believes that if he stays injury free and takes advantage of his opportunities he will become a champion in WWE.
Raw Superstar Apollo has been the center of attention for both good and bad reasons over the past couple of weeks. First of all, the former NXT star replaced Enzo Amore in the Mixed Match Challenge, earlier this week he had to drop the Crews from his name, and most notably he and Titus O Neil have been picking up wins over the Raw Tag Team Champions week after week on Raw.

Those victories have deservedly led somewhere for Titus Worldwide and at Elimination Chamber this Sunday O'Neil and Apollo will get another shot at The Bar and this time the Tag Team Titles will be on the line. If their recent wins are anything to go by, then we could be crowning new champions on Sunday night.
Apollo is yet to ever hold a championship in WWE while on either of NXT or Raw, but judging by his interview with The Mirror he is fully prepared for when that eventuality occurs. According to him aside from putting the work in if you want to be a champion in WWE it's important to try and stay injury free. "If you get injured, someone else will come in and take your spot," Apollo explained to The Mirror.
He's not wrong either. WWE's roster is currently more stacked than it has ever been before and if an injury occurs the powers that be can't simply sit around and wait for it to heal up. Take Samoa Joe for instance. It seems as if he was due to take on John Cena right about now but because of his foot injury plans had to change and now Elias has been occupying that spot.

Vince McMahon clearly sees a lot of potential in Apollo hence him being called up from NXT so soon. The call-up was likely a little too soon which is why he has floundered a little on the main roster. It seems as if he might be ready now though and at Elimination Chamber we may see that hard work and injury-free run culminate in a Tag Team Title win.
