The WWE 2K22 graphic for Elias appears to show off his scrapped Randy Savage inspired gear.
Elias hasn’t wrestled since the July 19, 2021 episode of Raw. In December, WrestleVotes reported that Elias was initially set to return with a look similar to the Macho Man, but Vince McMahon and co didn’t like it.
On the WWE 2K22 official roster page, Elias sports colorful trunks and wrist cuffs. This appears to be the gear that the former 24/7 Champion was set to wear for his WWE return.
You can view the graphic below:
