Jaxson Ryker recently returned to WWE television earlier this month as Elias' heavy. Elias said since then in promos that Ryker was someone who believed in what he was working towards. On last night's episode of RAW, Elias' song was interrupted by Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik. This led to Jaxson Ryker facing Gran Metalik in a singles match.
Jaxson Ryker made short work of Metalik and looked like a powerhouse during the match. Ryker put away Metalik with a sitout chokebomb and pinned him for the win.
On the latest edition of SK Wrestling's Legion of RAW, former WWE writer Vince Russo said that Ryker was someone who could be a big star in the future. Russo, who's worked with Ryker in TNA in the past, spoke of his positive experience working with the former leader of the Forgotten Sons:
"I love him. I loved working with this guy. What a pro. Bro this guy, I know there was that stuff where he made those comments on Twitter and they were in the dog house, but bro, this guy should be a bona fide Superstar. I'm telling you man," said Russo.
Vince Russo's co-host Dr. Chris Featherstone added that he felt like Jaxson Ryker looked like a million bucks and someone who could be a star. Russo agreed and said that the way Ryker carried himself also added to that:
"And that's the thing too Chris, that's the way he carries himself. Bro again, the military guys they know how to act. I love this guy man," said Russo.
