They were formed as the antitheses of the Corre, lead by Santino to avenge the injured Vladimir Kozlov. They challenged the Corre on Raw after Santino had repeated his Wrestlemania victory over the Corre with Kane and Big Show the preceding Smackdown.
APPLE lost their first match when Santino was pinned by Heath Slater after receiving a boot in back of the head by Justin Gabriel. The tag team who had stolen Santino's tag team championship previously (as Nexus) had once again foiled his efforts at vengeance. APPLE have not since wrestled together, and it is assumed that the stable was a one-time partnership.
In the 2011 draft, Daniel and Mark were drafted to Smackdown while Santino and Evan stayed on Raw, so it is unlikely the team will get back together soon. Mark Henry is currently the #1 contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, while Bryan holds the Money in the Bank briefcase which he has stated he will cash in during the 2012 Wrestlemania.
Mark Henry turned heel and, along with Big Show and Kane, even took Vladimir Kozlov out of commission, who was let go.
