He started his career in 2009, originally working under the ring name Uhaa Nation, and made his breakthrough in 2011, when he was signed by the Dragon Gate USA promotion, which also led to him making his first trip to Japan to work for Dragon Gate. In 2015, he signed with WWE and was assigned to its developmental brand NXT, where he was given the ring name Apollo Crews. He was promoted to WWE’s main roster on April 4, 2016.

After years of trying, Crews finally won his first WWE title, the United States Championship, from Andrade on the 25th February, 2020 during an episode of Monday Night Raw. In 2021, Crews turned heel and introduced a Nigerian royalty gimmick (he is of Nigerian descent). This includes having two elite guards and using a Nigerian accent.

At WrestleMania 37, with Dabba-Kato’s help, he defeated Big E to become the new Intercontinental Champion. Standing at 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m) and weighing 240 lb (110 kg), Uhaa is known both as a high-flyer and a power wrestler. He resides in Stone Mountain, Georgia.
