Remember him? There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster, which can cause some problems for those wrestlers who fall through the cracks. It is easy to see how wrestlers can be forgotten, especially if the company doesn’t have anything for them. Sometimes WWE tries to come up with something for them, and that is the case again with a long missing star.
Elias has not appeared on WWE television since August, when vignettes aired showing him burning his trademark guitar. The vignettes were never followed up on and Elias has not been mentioned since. According to Fightful Select, WWE has filmed new Elias vignettes and has been scheduled to return to Monday Night Raw, possibly under a new name. There is no word on when this will take place, though plans could always change.
Opinion: I’ll put this into the “I’ll believe it when I see it” category, as Elias has not been around for a long time now. WWE has a tendency to come up with ideas and then never do anything with them, which seems to be a strong possibility here. I’d like to see Elias do something else as the guitar playing only had so much of a shelf life, but maybe that is what Elias can continue to do best.
What do you think of Elias? How should he presented on WWE TV? Let us know in the comments below.
