Could we see Elias take on The Rock?

What's the story?

This past week, we saw Elias in an altercation with WWE Hall of Famer, Trish Stratus, that ended poorly for him. In an interview with The Gorilla Position, Elias would call out yet another legendary superstar.

Elias spoke about the similarities between him and The Rock, and also elaborated on the differences, challenging The Great One to a tango at WrestleMania 35. I would like to thank for the quote.

In case you didn't know...

Elias was running down a list of grievances he had with Canada on RAW, when a familiar theme song was heard. Trish Stratus stepped out and had a war of words with Elias.

When Elias got personal, he was slapped for his troubles by the local legend. It seems like this may not be Elias' final altercation with a WWE legend. Could he actually face off against The Great One?

The heart of the matter

Elias spoke about the similarities between him and The Rock and issued a challenge as well:

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. 

Elias also spoke about why The Rock wasn't nearly as good as him:

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.

What's next?

One has to suppose that WWE has plans for The Rock and Elias down the line. It will be interesting to see the two clash. There's no doubt however, that if they do, that it will be supremely electrifying.
