Elias has certainly caught fire in WWE with his gimmick of performing live music for the crowds the company visits.
On last night's (Mon. December 25, 2017) episode of Monday Night RAW, a special Christmas Day broadcast by the company, Elias opened up the show in a segment with John Cena in which the pair had a physical altercation.
Cena came out first to welcome the crowd to the special Christmas Day episode of RAW, before Elias followed and insisted on performing for the Chicago crowd. Elias began said that he refused to be interrupted by anybody.
The crowd then began to chant for their native son, former WWE Champion CM Punk, however, Elias had a clever response ready at the hip. He responded by saying: "I'll tell you one thing, John. It's for damn sure CM Punk ain't gonna interrupt me!"
After Elias' negative mention of Punk's name the crowd went nuts with boos and Cena even subtly referenced "The Cult Of Personality" as well. Check out the segment here below:
Elias proceeded to begin his performance in which he slammed Chicago with his lyrics, saying he couldn't think of a worse place to spend his holiday season. Cena interrupted angrily and told Elias not to disrespect the Chicago crowd.
After that Elias asked for one more chance and changed up his lyrics to please Cena, however, after asking Cena to sing along with him he attacked Cena from behind before challenging him to a match.
The pair then went one-on-one in singles competition in a match that Cena would rally back to win after hitting the Attitude Adjustment. The crowd was really behind Cena during the match, and Elias did a great job to position himself as the heel in the scenario.
If Elias can continue putting on matches like the one he had with Cena, and cutting promos the way he has on a weekly basis, "The Drifter" could have a very bright future in the WWE as he continues his journey.
