Jaxson Ryker appears with Elias on WWE Raw

After first being introduced on WWE Main Event, Elias and Jaxson Ryker's partnership made its way to Raw on Monday night.

Ryker stood alongside Elias as Elias performed on Monday's Raw. Elias introduced Ryker as someone who knows the universal truth -- that WWE stands for Walk With Elias. Ryker said Elias' music has changed him and he's been reborn by hearing the universal truth. Ryker called Elias a visionary. He said that -- for far too long -- Elias has been interrupted, disrespected, and attacked. Ryker said he's here to stop that.

R-Truth then interrupted Elias' performance. R-Truth apologized for interrupting Elias on Main Event and claimed that he's not an interrupter. Elias asked R-Truth if he understood that he was interrupting him right now. R-Truth didn't want to say anything because he didn't want to interrupt.

A group of wrestlers then came down to the ring chasing after R-Truth's 24/7 Championship. Ryker laid out Gran Metalik and threw Akira Tozawa outside of the ring onto Drew Gulak, Erik, and Lince Dorado.

Prior to last week's Main Event tapings, Ryker (real name Chad Lail) had been off WWE television since being criticized by fellow roster members after tweeting "Thankful for the @POTUS we have! God bless America. Built of freedom. Forgotten No More" on June 1. Dave Meltzer wrote about the situation:

The Forgotten Sons were about to be programmed with the New Day for the Smackdown tag titles when Ryker made a tweet that offended a lot of the locker room (including both [Wesley] Blake & [Steve] Cutler publicly referencing it and disassociating themselves from him) and all were then taken off television. The tweet in question was Ryker praising Trump on 6/1 about an hour after protesters were tear-gassed to clear the way for him to go to the church. Wrestlers, who rarely break ranks among themselves in a public forum, including Blake, Cutler, Owens, Ricochet, Ali and Zayn immediately were critical of the statement although Ricochet was a little more careful just saying he hoped it was a bad attempt to get heat and not something he really believed.

Blake & Cutler, Ryker's former stablemates in The Forgotten Sons, returned to WWE TV on SmackDown earlier this month and have aligned with Baron Corbin as his Knights of The Lone Wolf.
