Elias’ WWE Backlash performance descended into bedlam

Elias’ WWE Backlash performance descended into bedlam

NEWARK, N.J. — Elias is as mysterious a man has ever stepped foot in the ring, but he has made one thing very clear: He hates being upstaged. Imagine how he feels after WWE Backlash.

After some potentially misrepresenting comments about his friendship with Jersey’s own Bruce Springsteen, Elias found his performance cut off by not one, but two intruders.

First, The New Day came calling with a marching-band rendition of “New Day Rocks.” When Elias sent them packing, Aiden English surfaced to unleash a few bars and introduce Rusev, who argued that since it was Rusev Day, he could do whatever he wanted. Elias attempted to re-start his performance once again, only to suffer another interruption — this time, from No Way Jose, boasting a full conga line that also included, incredibly, Titus Worldwide and Breezango.

An increasingly irate Elias once again demanded his performance be re-started, at which point he suffered his fourth and most humiliating interruption when Bobby Roode appeared out of nowhere and planted Elias with a Glorious DDT.

After his musical performance is interrupted by multiple Superstars, Elias is silenced with a blistering DDT from Bobby Roode: Courtesy of the award-winning WWE Network.

The Glorious One joined Jose’s now mega-sized conga line (only Rusev Day declined to participate, though English seemed interested) while Elias lay decimated in the ring, bringing the curtain down on a performance no one will ever forget — perhaps not for the reasons Elias would have liked, but as another classic-rock luminary once said, you can’t always get what you want.
