5 possible storylines for Elias' return to WWE
The former 24/7 Champion, Elias will make his return from injury soon as the officials have cleared him to wrestle. Elias had been a vital part of RAW during the first three years of the brand extension. However, Vince McMahon transferred him to SmackDown Live earlier this year.
The former NXT Superstar had joined forces with Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre to battle Roman Reigns. He subsequently took part in the King of the Ring event but an ankle injury forced him to pull out of his semifinal match and nobody he has not been seen since. Here are 5 ways he could return to SmackDown.
#5 Pursue the 24/7 Championship
Elias had been after the 24/7 Championship before his injury therefore, it would not be a surprise if WWE books him in the same direction once again. At the moment, the 24/7 title is on RAW where the Singh Brothers are feuding with R-Truth.
While the skits have been entertaining, Elias can add more spice to this scene with his genius. Also, WWE can book this return to take place at Survivor Series where SmackDown’s Elias could steal the 24/7 title from the Red brand.
The 24/7 title has shown that it can produce some great feuds for comic relief. So, it would make sense to have Elias back in the title scene.
