As seen on last week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Vince McMahon introduced Elias as the “Biggest acquisition in the history of SmackDown”.
According to Slice Wrestling, Vince made the decision to have Elias shifted to SmackDown because he’s very high on him and will be working closely with him to help his character.
Word backstage in WWE is that Elias is Vince’s “chosen one” and there have been talks to have Elias win the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder match next month.
Then in June, Elias is scheduled to have the biggest match of his WWE career, when he faces The Undertaker in a singles match at the Saudi Arabia PPV.
