#5 Elias has backstage heat?
The Drifter has truly become a drifter ever since he returned to SmackDown. The popular Superstar has always received a great reaction from the fans but it looks like WWE does not have any major plans for the former 4-time 24/7 Champion.
While speaking on the Busted Open podcast, Elias revealed that he might have upset people backstage because of how hard he pushes for his ideas. The former NXT Superstar also said that he has 'begged' to be further along than he currently is.
And you know what, it’s great. I’m on television every week and people feel alive. But I tell you what, man, I feel like I’m capable of even more. I am looking for that on all aspects, to the point where people might be getting upset with me [because] I’m pushing so hard.” [H/T Wrestlingnews.co]
Elias is currently invovled in a lackluster feud with King Corbin, and it looks like the two men are being built for a possible match at WrestleMania 36. While Elias is showcased on SmackDown almost every week, he has not had many in-ring appearances on the show this year.
