Ezekiel dropped a bombshell on Kevin Owens on this week’s episode of WWE Raw. As Owens continues to insist that Ezekial is really Elias, the alleged younger brother has doubled down time and time again. Ezekiel promised that Elias would make an appearance and perform on next week’s Raw.
Owens was irate at the news. He repeatedly called Ezekiel a liar. Now, Zeke will have a chance to prove he is Elias’ younger brother once and for all.
Ezekial and Elias are obviously the same person. This isn’t the first time such a storyline has happened in pro wrestling. On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about how WWE will have to get creative to handle the angle on next Monday’s show.
“I guess [the idea is to put a fake beard on him]. Or, just show a tape from years ago. I’m sure that they’ll be able to figure a way out of this one. It’s not like this hasn’t been done before, you can do trick photography, split-screen.
When Dusty Rhodes was the Midnight Rider, Dusty Rhodes and the Midnight Rider would be on the same TV show and they’d be in the same scenes because they’d use trick photography, so it’s as old as old can be. This is nothing new in wrestling at all.”
The story between Ezekiel and Kevin Owens has been one of the most entertaining storylines on Raw. Owens has once again proven that he can work with just about anything he is given. Fans will have to tune in next week to see how it goes when Elias finally returns to Monday Night Raw, but it’s sure to be wild.
