WWE reported an injury on television last week that some fans didn’t take too seriously. Michael Cole stated that Elias will be out of action due to injuries from a fake car accident. It turns out that Elias really is injured and he won’t be back for a while.
Post Wrestling reports that Elias’ injury angle on SmackDown was designed to write him off television for months. He was supposedly hit with a car in the Jeff Hardy DUI angle.
Elias suffered a torn pectoral muscle in real life. It will likely be several months before he is able to make a return. He suffered a couple of storyline injuries in the last few months, but he was able to return. This time his injuries are very real.
We can only hope that fans will be walking with Elias again very soon. He seems to have a hard time getting momentum behind him before something gets in his way.
