Elias trolls Liverpool fans at WWE event by wearing a Manchester City shirt

Last week WWE started the first of their bi-annual European tours as they put in the miles on the road and in the air to see their worldwide fanbase.

Whilst they stop off at many countries, such as Spain, Germany, France, Norway and Sweden, the United Kingdom is the main hotbed for such shows.

The fanbase they can attract for the live events on British soil means that 10 events in the space of 10 days is completely do-able, and both Raw and SmackDown this week will broadcast from the O2 Arena in London.

As with any WWE roster, there's always one superstar there who is on the card to run down the live crowd to get them very vocal.

Mick Foley was the king of cheap pops back in his heyday, the mere mention of the town he was performing in sent WWE fans into a frenzy.

Seemingly though, the king of cheap heat nowadays is Elias.

Many will remember his comments on an episode of Raw last year regarding the now defunct NBA team the Seattle Supersonics, who were moved to Oklahoma City in 2008.

Elias received nuclear heat for his words in some of the loudest negative reactions seen at a WWE show since the Attitude Era.

Well as some people will know, yesterday was the final day of the English Premier League season, and with WWE hitting Liverpool for their show last night, Elias found the perfect opportunity to troll the Liverpool-supporting section of the audience.

Elias began to sing The Beatles' song 'Yesterday', but then briefly stopped to don the shirt of Manchester City - who pipped Liverpool to the Premier League title - and then started to alter the words of the song.

"Earlier today, Man City won their biggest game, now Liverpool has no more games to play," sung Elias to a chorus of boos.

But The Drifter wasn't done there, as he continued: "Except when they lose to the Spurs two weeks away."

It's actually three weeks away, but Elias got the reaction he wanted.

Clips of his performance have subsequently gone viral, and even Man City themselves got in on the action with a tweet of their own.

Top level trolling, and further proof that WWE really does stand for Walk With Elias - although it's unclear whether or not Liverpool fans will be walking with him anymore.
