RAW Superstar Elias had the opportunity to visit the Complex offices, where “The Drifter” spoke with Olga and Mack to promote the “Walk With Elias” album that was released earlier this week.
Throughout the interview, which was created with Elias playing his character, the RAW Superstar tackled down on Chris Jericho. This stems from their altercation back at RAW 25 when Jericho taunted Elias using his own guitar before putting “The Drifter” on the list.
“To be honest with you, I’m sick of Chris Jericho. I’ve had enough of Chris Jericho. I’ve seen him on my TV far too often. I’m the guy that plays guitar and sings on Monday Night RAW, and he shows up, tries to steal my act? It was OK for a quick laugh or something like that but on a personal level, the guy’s personality just rubs me the wrong way. His ego is just totally out of control, unfounded, and I can’t stand people whose egos are just not deserving. That’s all I can say.”
Elias also revealed what he thinks of Superstars who compete on a part-time basis, given that he works a full-time schedule with WWE.
“They can do whatever they want. If you want to consider them part-timers or once-a-year guys, or whatever it is, they can do whatever they want as long as they understand when they’re coming back to Monday Night RAW or pay-per-view or something like that, it’s my show now. WWE is Elias’ and as long as you accept that, you can do whatever you want but if you don’t accept it then come to me because I definitely have a problem with that.”
During the interview, Elias also gave props to Lars Sullivan and Riddick Moss, who he said fans should keep an eye out for.
