After two unsuccessful attempts to reclaim the EMERGE Championship, which was stripped from him by newly appointed Commissioner Christopher Lowe in January at Emergence Day, the question still remains as to whether or not ‘Poison’ Appollo Starr will be able to reclaim the Championship that he once held.

Our ringside commentator, Richey Stephens, was able to catch up with ‘Poison’ Appollo Starr as he left EMERGE 19. While exiting the locker room very dejected after being asked to comment on his loss, Starr told us, “I never make excuses, I’m not an excuse guy.”
There is no doubt that given the chance Appollo believes in his heart that he is going to take down the monster, while next time avoiding the Horrorscope (Zodiak’s Heart Punch), at all costs.
“I’m going to figure out a way to beat this man!“ Starr told Stephens just before leaving Parkside Elementary shortly after the Main Event without the EMERGE Championship around his waist.
So far Zodiak has had the winning record against Appollo Starr in the two EMERGE Championship matches pitting them against each other with Zodiak being the victor in both title matches. Only time will tell as to whether or not Appollo Starr will get another chance and find a way to defeat Zodiak and claim the EMERGE Championship; a title that originally took him years to contend for before winning it in May of 2016.
“The champ intends to exercise his 30-day window clause regarding the EMERGE Championship defenses. With the clause in his contract being upheld, Zodiak’s match against Lennox Norris will be a non-title match on April 1st at Parkside Elementary”, Commissioner Christopher Lowe stated at the EMERGE 20 Card Reveal Livestream on Facebook Live.
“If I fight Zodiak again, it’s going to be for the EMERGE Championship. I will not waste another opportunity.”, said the former challenger Appollo Starr.
