Scrapped WWE Gimmick Change Plans For Elias

Scrapped WWE Gimmick Change Plans For Elias

Remember Elias? Well a new update has been provided on his WWE status, including scrapped plans for a gimmick change.

Months ago, WWE aired vignettes of Elias in a graveyard, the last one of which ended by telling us that Elias was dead.

WrestleVotes reports that there was no end plan for those, and it was simply to kill off the musician gimmick.

However, it was also noted that a plan for an “initial rebranding” a number of weeks ago had Elias looking similar to Randy Savage, with colourful trunks and a beard.

Vince McMahon and his pals apparently didn’t like the idea, so it’s now “back to square one” for the former 24/7 Champion.

He was not drafted to either brand during the WWE Draft at the start of October, but has him listed on Raw since that’s where he was before said draft.
