Elias was a heel and a darn good one too until he turned babyface seemingly out of the blue. He actually turned to the good side on the same night that Roman Reigns announced that he has leukemia and was leaving WWE.
The Drifter acted like a big heel on RAW this week when he smashed the returning Jeff Jarrett over the back with a guitar. Luckily for Road Dogg, he was able to get away, but Double J suffered a much worse fate.
Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that he was told Elias turned heel at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view and not the next night on RAW. Either way, everything he said still received a great reaction from the Phoenix crowd.
Elias’ babyface turn might not have been the best thing for him, so he is now a bad guy again. We will just have to wait and see where his new feud with Jeff Jarrett and Road Dogg finds him, but if you’re still Walking With Elias, then your leader is a baddie.
