Elias was released by WWE back in September, one of many wrestlers and employees cut after the Endeavor sale & TKO launch became officiak.
The 36 year old from Pittsburgh (real name Jeffrey Sciullo) is drifting into free agency, announcing the move with a New Year’s Day video drop announcing his new gimmick name.
With no small amount of religious symbolism, it features Elias walking through a forest — “the shadow valley”, according to the narrator — on his way to his own grave. Wearing a different hat, he digs the grave and then does the burying after falling into it... because pretending to be other versions of yourself is a hard habit to break, I guess.
Now wearing a white sleeveless undershirt, he crawls out of his fiery tomb and the screen flashes with “ELIJAH”. The new moniker reveal is also spoiled by the caption on the X post.
