Elias signs multi-year contract extension with WWE


Elias will be staying with the WWE for many years to come.

It was announced tonight on WWE Backstage that Elias has re-signed with the company. Ryan Satin reported in his Satin Sheet segment that Elias has been re-signed to a multi-year contract.

Elias has been with the company since 2014. He worked as an enhancement talent on the NXT brand for a year until adapting a drifter persona, including playing a guitar. In April of 2017, he made his debut on the main roster. The drifter aspect of his character was later dropped.

After suffering an ankle injury back in September, Elias returned to SmackDown in November as a babyface and has been a regular on television since. On last week’s SmackDown, he came out and sang a song about the Royal Rumble, eventually saying that he will be a part of the Royal Rumble match on January 26.
