Conspicuous by his absence for the last two weeks, Elias resurfaced on Raw in advance of a tag team match to claim he had been recording his debut album while he was away. One wonders if the record will boast a similar contribution from “Constable” Baron Corbin as the match did: The Lone Wolf scored the ultimate pinfall in the contest, giving “The Living Truth” a happy homecoming to Team Red by proxy.
It took some time for the fateful turn of events that carried Elias & Corbin to victory against Finn Bálor & Bobby Roode, as the bout was something of a war of attrition. It seemed the match was headed for a breakdown when The Extraordinary Man brawled with The Constable (his WWE Extreme Rules opponent) even though Roode was the legal man. That Corbin got the better of the Irishman in the scuffle decided the match, as The Glorious One had no backup when Elias struck from behind to tee Roode up for Corbin’s match-deciding End of Days.
