• Elias Reveals How John Cena Helped Him
During a recent appearance on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness, Raw wrestler Elias talked how John Cena helped him with the phrase – ‘WWE Stands For Walk With Elias’.
Below are the highlights:
On how it originated:
“The ‘walk with Elias” thing– it all started with The Drifter in NXT. So, it’s all kind of evolved, right? The Drifter was this guy where I’d put a guitar on my shoulder and walk from town to town, find my way however I can, whether it’s hitchhiking, on a bus, walking, whatever I’ve gotta do. So it just became a question, ‘Who wants to walk with The Drifter? Who wants to go with me on this journey?'”
On John Cena helping him:
“When I got to the main roster, Vince said ‘Let’s drop The Drifter stuff. You’re gonna be Elias and that’s it. So, ‘walk with Elias’ was the next question, right? And it just so happened to perfectly work out, ‘WWE’ and ‘walk with Elias’ are right in line there. I remember I said it backstage to John Cena.
He was going off about the WWE Universe and the WWE this and that, and I said ‘Hey John, do you know WWE stands for? It stands for walk with Elias.’ He said, ‘My head just exploded in ten different ways, man. That is great!’ He said, ‘You got to make a thing out of that.'”
