A clean-shaven Elias made his return to Monday Night Raw last night in a funny segment with Kevin Owens where he claimed to be Ezekiel, Elias’ younger brother.
He came out halfway through Kevin Owens’ promo and after some confusion, Owens recognized his former partner in crime. “Elias? Is that you?” said Owens to laughter from fans.
But Elias said he wasn’t, instead, he was Ezekiel, Elias’ younger brother. Fans chanted “Yes you are” and Owens told him that he hates liars. Owens then said that he has 10 seconds to exit the ring and started the countdown, with fans chanting “What?” after every number. When he hit 1, Owens simply walked away instead.
Elias hasn’t been seen on WWE television since July 2021. A vignette of him destroying his guitar – and his gimmick – aired in August but that was the last time we heard from him.
