During tonight’s episode of WWE RAW, Ezekiel’s match against Chad Gable was interrupted time and time again. Not only did Gable’s tag team partner, Otis, try to get involved in the match, but Owens was also heckling insults at Ezekiel from ringside. Each time the announcers tried to refer to him as “Ezekiel”, Owens would loudly yell “Elias!” to correct them.
After the match was finished, Owens grabbed a microphone and issued a challenge for a one-on-one match at “Hell in a Cell”. Ezekiel looked pleased with the idea, and though it hasn’t been confirmed, he will appear on “RAW Talk” later tonight and likely accept the challenge.
This past April, Elias debuted a new gimmick without a beard or guitar on the post-WrestleMania 38 edition of WWE RAW. He now claims to be ‘Ezekiel, the younger brother of Elias,’ and has maintained his new identity since then.
