WWE Superstar Elias recently spoke to the Memphis Commercial Appeal regarding his WWE run and what he envisions himself doing in 2020. The two goals that the guitar playing Superstar has in mind? Winning the Intercontinental Championship and then eventually the Universal Championship.
“I’ve got every tool you could imagine to get there. So it’s just a matter of opportunity and timing, as far as I’m concerned,” Elias stated.
Elias also discussed his work on television, saying about the fans; “They need to be on your side. And it just so happens I’ve got the power to manipulate people with my music. With my words, with everything I do, and it looks like that is the approach I am going to have to take moving forward. A lot of times the truth can hurt,” Elias said. “I might’ve said some things about Memphis in particular in the past that may have upset them. But I’m thinking this time around the truth is just going to be accepted on a much bigger level.”
“We’re going to find out if Memphis walks with Elias — that’s what it’s going to come down to,” he said.
Elias has been out of action for some time due to injury. This forced the Superstar to pull out of the King of The Ring tournament earlier this year. Elias was reportedly suffering from an ankle injury at the time of being pulled from WWE television.
