Elias being wasted is a symptom of this horrible age where mainstream wrestling caters to workrate marks on the internet
In a better more succesful age in wrestling, a guy whose character is as over as Elias would be given a simple move-set with 5 moves of doom and would be booked to go out there, say his catchphrases and go over in a simple match in the main event.
Now, he's wasted doing the exact ssame segment every week, being jobbed out to legends and never being in a proper feud, despite being objectively more over than most other full-time talent on the roster.
He should be at least IC champ by now.
I'm not a slave anymore
