Elias made his long-awaited return to WWE during tonight’s WWE RAW, attacking Jeff Hardy with a guitar during a Triple Threat Match.
Former Intercontinental Champion Hardy had challenged one of his most recent rivals, AJ Styles, and Seth Rollins to a Triple Threat Match on WWE RAW. However, at the end of the match, Elias would smash a guitar over the Charismatic Enigma’s back, allowing The Phenomenal One to pick up the win over his new RAW counterpart.
In the very next segment, Stephanie McMahon would confirm that Elias had been drafted to RAW permanently.
Elias has had a checkered 2020 in WWE, entering the Royal Rumble only to be eliminated immediately after entering at number two by Brock Lesnar. Elias would then feud through WrestleMania with King Corbin, but was written off TV in May after progressing in a tournament for the vacant Intercontinental Championship. Elias would be run over by a car in storyline but had instead suffered a torn pectoral muscle which would require surgery.
Elias’ return saw the man formerly known as The Drifter attack Jeff Hardy, who had initially been blamed for running him over on SmackDown when the former NXT Superstar had been written off television to undergo surgery.
