Elias Returning To Monday Night Raw Next Week


While Ezekiel may be gone for the foreseeable future, his brother Elias is set to return to Raw next week!

Back in mid-September, Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported that Ezekiel was no longer listed on WWE’s internal roster and had been replaced by Elias. The report came after Ezekiel was stretchered out of Monday Night Raw back in August following a vicious attack from Kevin Owens, with whom he’d been feuding since he debuted in the company the night after WrestleMania 38. The next week, Ezekiel was shown in the hospital surrounded by members of his family.

Now, a vignette played during the season premiere of Raw confirmed that The Drifter will indeed be making his return to the red brand next week.

While Elias did make a Raw appearance earlier this year when he reunited with his brother back in June, he hasn’t been featured as a regular performer in well over a year, disappearing from television after Jaxson Ryker defeated him in a Symphony of Destruction match in July of 2021. A vignette the following August declared that Elias was “dead,” and when Ezekiel appeared on the scene back in April, many wondered if The Drifter was indeed gone for good.

Elsewhere on Monday Night Raw, Brock Lesnar returned for the first time since SummerSlam and attacked Bobby Lashley, allowing Seth Rollins to defeat Lashley and become the new United States Champion. Full results from the October 10th episode can be found here.
