Last week on Monday Night Raw, Elias faced Jeff Hardy in a Symphony of Destruction match. During the match, Hardy attacked Elias with a guitar stock which resulted in The Drifter getting electrocuted on Raw.
Recently, on Twitter, Elias posted an update on his injury. He said that he won’t be able to play guitar anymore. This comes as a surprise to WWE fans because Elias’ entire gimmick has been around guitars and his music. If he were to give up playing guitar on Raw, then what would Elias do?
“Hello I am Elias and I would like to take this time to talk about the horrific electrocution this past week on Monday Night Raw,” said Elias. “Many of you loyal fans and Universal Truthsters out there that have sent me nothing but love, and I appreciate every one of you.
“And for those of you who said, ‘Elias deserves it,’ I just have to say, ‘Screw You.’ The doctors told me that kind of voltage could have killed an average man. But I’m no average man, and that’s why they call me The Extraordinary Elias,” he added.
“The doctors also told me that I may no longer be able to play the guitar again,” he said. “Despite all those odds and thanks to modern medicine, I have gained full function in my hands. And when I was electrocuted, something in Elias did change.”
“And on top of that, I have seen visions and I know the purpose of my life. And now that I have that knowledge, I will be sharing my gift with all of you.”
This seems to indicate that Elias is going to drop his current gimmick soon. He has the potential to become a top singles wrestler in WWE.
