Elias is one of the biggest successes to come from NXT. He’s one of the most entertaining people on Raw’s roster. He’s a despicable heel who uses shortcuts to win. Worst of all, he plays the guitar. What a monster.
Elias has been floating in the upper reaches of the card for a while. No one really batted an eye when he was in the Elimination Chamber. He has shown he can hang with some of Raw’s elite superstars.
His unique blend of power and technique could help Elias claim the top spot and become the Universal Champion. There is no one else like him. He could probably break through this year. Maybe 2018 is the year of Elias.
