Kevin Owens might be introduced to Elias and Ezekiel’s younger brother soon.
For weeks, Kevin Owens has been trying to expose Ezekiel as a fraud. He’s claiming that Ezekiel isn’t exactly Ezekiel but rather Elias with a shaved beard. Though the two have battled multiple times now, it doesn’t seem like their issues with each other have settled. Now, another Ezekiel family member may make Owens even more paranoid.
After interrupting Elias’ return on last night’s Raw, Owens challenged Ezekiel, Elias, or their yet to be introduced younger brother, Elrod, to a match next week. Ezekiel accepted the challenge, and a match graphic appeared on WWE’s Twitter account for next week’s match. The picture showed Owens potentially facing either Ezekiel, Elias, or a third mystery person assumed to be Elrod.

Owens defeated Ezekiel at Hell in a Cell earlier this month. Ezekiel returned the favour with a count-out win over Owens last week on Raw. It’s only fitting that the two have a third match to settle the score, though with the potential of Elrod coming into the picture, perhaps their third encounter will have to wait until Money In The Bank.
The June 20th edition of Raw also saw a surprise appearance from Vince McMahon. After a brief promo on SmackDown just days earlier, McMahon arrived on the red brand to hype up the return of John Cena.
The 16-time World Champion is set to return to Monday Night Raw on June 27th in Laredo, Texas, 20 years to the day that Cena debuted on SmackDown in 2002.
“Tonight marks the 1,517th edition of Monday Night Raw, which continues to make it the longest running episodic television show in history. And for that I say thank you!
“Raw has been on the air for almost 30 years. 20 of those 30 years has been dominated by the greatest WWE Superstar of all time. That man makes his return to Raw live here next week. I made reference to no less than Mr. Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect, John Cena!”
Vince McMahon is currently under investigation following allegations that he gave a hush payment to a former employee with whom he had an affair.
