Elias is still yet to win a Championship in WWE and this past week on RAW, he was put in his place by WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus. Despite this, it appears that the former NXT star hasn’t learned not to run his mouth about WWE legends.
Elias recently spoke to Gorilla Position where he once again called out The Rock and challenged him to a match at WrestleMania.
“I hear all kinds of comparisons of The Rock. Of course, he played guitar a few times on Monday Night RAW and if he wants to meet at WrestleMania and come walk with Elias, I’m more than welcome to show him how it’s done,” he said via RingSideNews.
“Here’s the thing, okay? He did a few Monday Night RAWs [with a guitar], he did The Rock concerts, and everybody thinks he’s great — he did cover songs, okay? He ripped off Wonderful Tonight and Jailhouse Rock.”
“Elias is doing originals every single week in front of millions of people all around the world. I’ve got an album out, a documentary out, I’m performing in front of tens of thousands live at all of the events. So The Rock can’t do what I do.”
The Rock is currently the favorite to win the 2019 Royal Rumble match and there are rumors that he could go on to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 35 for the Universal Championship.
Elias has had a problem with the former World Champion for a number of months now and it’s reached the point where WWE needs to have some kind of pay off from this. It is unknown how The Rock will make his return to WWE, but it could well be at the expense of Elias.
