Ezekiel has been without his muse over the past few weeks. Zeke freaks have had to wait to see what will happen between Elias’ brother and Kevin Owens as KO recovers from an injury that has kept him off television. That doesn’t mean fans won’t get to see him on tonight’s episode of Raw.
Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that while Ezekiel and Kevin Owens might not have the chance to face off tonight, there are still plans to feature the storyline on Raw. Elias is set to make an appearance tonight. There are no details on exactly what his segment will look like.
“We’re told that Elias being integrated into the show was planned, and they’ve prepared materials for that character.”
Kevin Owens has been trying to prove that Ezekiel and Elias (and even mythical little brother, Elrod) are the same person since April. With Owens expected to miss a few more weeks of action, WWE will continue to feature the “brothers” on television. The storyline has been one of the more entertaining things on Raw, so it makes sense to feature Elias this week.
Elias appeared on Raw in June to further the angle with Kevin Owens. With some fancy camera tricks, WWE was able to get both in the same place. It has driven Owens to the brink of insanity.
Other segments announced for tonight’s show include the return of Brock Lesnar, a US Open Challenge from Bobby Lashley, and a singles match between Theory and Riddle. Time will tell how Elias’ segment might play into it all.
