Elias mocks Baron Corbin, beats Jinder Mahal on first night as a face

Elias is now a face and he’s already great at name dropping.

One week after Elias blasted Baron Corbin in the back with his guitar, The Drifter spent this week on Raw playing nice with the live crowd. With Raw taking place in Charlotte, North Carolina, Elias named dropped Ric Flair and told of story of partying with The Nature Boy.

The crowd? They were into it.

Elias then took his performance backstage and sang outside the locker room of Corbin. Before his song was done, Jinder Mahal attacked Elias from behind and the two men were booked into a match.

Elias dispatched of Mahal pretty easily as the crowd cheered his every move.

As a pandering heel, Elias made it pretty far up the ladder in the WWE. Now working as a face, how big of a star can cool babyface Elias become?
