Elias replaces Shane McMahon, faces Strowman at WWE Fastlane


Elias replaced Shane McMahon for his match against Braun Strowman tonight at Fastlane.

During the pre-show, it was announced that Shane McMahon had suffered a leg injury while training for tonight’s match. After he left the trainer’s room in a backstage segment on pay-per-view, he ran into Elias and Jaxson Ryker. Elias told Shane that he wanted to hold a concert at WrestleMania. This led to a situation later in the pay-per-view where Elias started to perform in front of Shane McMahon. Shane then told Elias he would be facing Strowman in his place. Strowman then arrived as Shane left.

The match didn’t last long, as Strowman pinned Elias with a running powerslam. 

Shane McMahon and Elias have been feuding for the last month, with the story being that Shane is bullying Strowman by calling him stupid. In a confrontation during Raw last week, Shane attacked Strowman with a television camera, then took out two buckets of slime and poured it on Strowman.
