Elias went back to the WWE PC recently for a WWE 2K19 event where he spoke to Cultaholic about his career and why he believes he received the big push to Raw seemingly out of nowhere.
“It’s hard to say, I got called up quick. It seemed like the right time for me is all I can say. The reason? I think it’s obvious now you watch Monday Night Raw and see the way people react. The way the world reacts to Elias it’s like, ‘we have him in NXT that’s awesome, that’s great NXT is awesome. Let’s put him on a global stage, let’s let the world see what Elias has.’ To me, it’s an easy decision to put Elias on Monday Night Raw.”
He said that NXT is more of a wrestling-based show and there wasn’t much time for him to do his thing there. The idea was to take the little segments of the Elias character we saw in NXT and then lengthen his segments on Raw and let him expand, tell stories, and sing some songs.
