During the August 9th 2021 edition of WWE NXT, there was an Elias vignette which teased the idea that Elias would be changing his character. Elias threw his guitar into a fire and said the following before walking away…
“WWE stood for Walk With Elias… but Elias is dead.”
Elias recently lost to Jaxson Ryker in a Symphony of Destruction match.
