This is something different. Elias is one of the more unique wrestlers in WWE at the moment. To have a gimmick as simple as he plays a guitar and sings and take it to the level that he’s already reached is rather impressive. In any other era that would be the end of it, but in today’s wrestling world with WWE having its hands in so many things, you get to do something very different, just like this.
WWE has released the full video of Elias giving a live, impromptu surprise concert on Bourbon Street in New Orleans over WrestleMania 34 weekend. The show will also air as part of an upcoming WWE Network documentary on Elias which will air next Monday night after Monday Night Raw. Elias will also be releasing an album on Monday, which is already available on Spotify.
Opinion: I was in New Orleans when this took place and was annoyed that I didn’t hear about it until the next day. Something like this is so cool to have happen over WrestleMania weekend as you never know when you might see this kind of a surprise. That’s a great way to hype up the weekend and thanks to the WWE Network, we get to see it a few months later. This is really cool and worth checking out.
