Elias returned to WWE as a babyface on the SmackDown brand. Since Brock Lesnar jumped to Raw that brought the Universal Title to the blue brand and Elias wants that belt.
While speaking to Commercial Appeal, Elias was asked about his chances of holding the WWE Universal Championship. He said that it’s only a matter of timing and opportunity because he has all the tools needed to get the job done.
“I’ve got every tool you could imagine to get there, so it’s just a matter of opportunity and timing, as far as I’m concerned,”
Elias is currently on the midcard level, but he’s a strong babyface. His musical performances and appearance on FOX’s New Year’s Eve Countdown special could also be a sign that the future is very bright for The Drifter in WWE.
