Elias had a great run in NXT where he became a fan-favorite in no time. Unfortunately, his run on the main roster was far from ideal. “The Drifter” Elias Samson was no more and what fans got instead ultimately disappointed.

Since August of last year, Elias had been absent from WWE television as fans simply lost hope that he would ever return. As we exclusively reported, Elias was seen backstage in WWE with no beard and cropped hair. 

Ringside News further reported that Elias’ name didn’t come up in creative conversations anymore. We also exclusively reported in December that Elias was spotted backstage with clean shave. That all changed on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, as Elias came back as his younger brother Ezekiel.

Following the conclusion of this week’s show, Ezekiel took to Twitter and stated that he will be taking over Elias’ Twitter account, introducing himself as the younger brother.


Hey guys, since Elias is gone, I’ll be taking over his Twitter, I’m his younger brother – Ezekiel!

We will have to wait and see how Ezekiel will fare in WWE now that he has finally returned after such a long hiatus.
