    Turn off your cellphones, hold your applause and most importantly......read this thread: The Elias thread!

    Didn't see a thread on him so I decided to post one on him.

    After an apparent face turn from him on tonight's Raw, where does he go from here?

    To a massive push or massive flop. He’s incredibly over and there’s very little in between. He was great tonight though and I’m full of hope- he needs to wrestle more though.

    I personally think a move to smackdown might do him some good. Maybe feud with, and perhaps win the US title off of Nakamara since Nakamara doesn't seem to be doing anything with it.

    Corbin could face Elias in a match where if Corbin loses, he is no longer GM and if Elias loses, he is fired (from Raw).

    Elias is going to fill the spot that was for McIntyre.

    With Reigns' forcing him to leave, that leaves a huge hole in the roster. Let's look athow the WWE is handling this.

    - Strowman turned face again to fill that top spot vacated by Reigns
    - Ziggler and McIntyre lose the belts earlier and will be splitting earlier to elevate McIntyre to top heel to feud with Strowman after Crown Jewel
    - Ambrose and Rollins feud moved up
    - Need a new face, so they look to the next guy who is tremendously over - Elias

    I see Elias feuding with Corbin for a month or two in a holding pattern and to cement Elias as a new face. Then whn Ambrose and Rollins are feuding, eventually Ambrose will take the IC title off Rollins. Then Elias gets a shot at the IC title, and Rollins costs Ambrose the title and allows Elias to win it. Elias goes into WM with the IC title.

    I would be okay with that.

    The really, really remarkable thing about Elias is that he just didn't work in NXT. At all. He did nothing for me there. But on the main roster he's been perfect. Can't believe he's only, what, a month removed from getting the most heat for a sports reference I've ever heard and now he's turning face by beating Big Baz Corbz down.

    In all fairness if you told me a year ago that Baron Corbin vs The Drifter was going to be a to feud I’d have laughed in your face. Both men have done well.

    Seems like there was a flurry of Elias discussion a month ago and nothing since. Has he just done nothing of note since then?

    No, not really, because everyone has been in a holding pattern prior to Survivor Series and now after. Next week we will probably resume your regularly scheduled programming. But on Monday he got his own entrance in the 6 man tag match and he is over as hell.

    He's in a weird place at the moment. At first it seems like he was going to feud with Corbin, but Corbin is in a feud with Braun. Elias seems like he's going to be feuding with Lashley now (They pretty much were towards Summerslam). The problem is I don't see Elias going over Lashley, especially with Lashley turning heel recently.

    Honestly, Elias should move to Smackdown and take the US title off Nakamara.

    I keep hearing he'll get a big spot at Wrestlemania, but it's odd, because when you don't watch the show it doesn't feel like there's this big sense of momentum building. Maybe it's the kind of thing that you need to be watching but traditionally when someone was getting hot and moving on up, you could pretty much feel it, but that doesn't seem to be there in the general chat.

    So yeah, if someone can fill me in with his trajectory, what he's been doing, why people think he's going to have a big year and how he's supposed to have gotten really over, I'd appreciate a short summary.

    Well, he won his feud with Bobby Lashley, defeating him twice and didn't take an L to him in a one on one match so that alone makes me believe they're high on him right now, which is cool. At the moment, he is involved in a feud with Corbin, I guess, though he did take an L to him a week or 2 ago.

    Looks like Elias is going back to being heel. That face turn was pretty short lived.

    Yeah, what's all that about? I hear good reports about him but then it seems like they don't really have a plan for the guy.

    It's Vince not liking the fact that he got himself over, I guess?
