What is being said about Elias’ status with WWE

Back in August of 2021, WWE started airing vignettes that teased a change in the character of Elias. However, the videos stopping airing and Elias hasn’t appeared on television since. Elias hasn’t wrestled since the July 19th 2021 edition of WWE RAW.

According to Steve Carrier of RingsideNews.com, WWE currently has no plan for Elias to make a return to television. Carrier wrote the following…

“WresteMania is coming up and plenty of fans are talking about plans and returns. It might be best not to get your hopes up about Elias. We were told that he’s in ‘creative purgatory’ and a tenured member of the team said, ‘I don’t remember the last time his name came up.'”

Elias is in the WWE2K22 game and a graphic showed him with different ring gear which was apparently part of his rebranding. It was previously reported that Vince McMahon did not like the change.
