• RAW Star Calls Out The Rock For WrestleMania 35
Elias has been calling out The Rock for months now. From calling him out on Twitter to calling him out on WWE programming, Elias has shown that he’s desperate for a face-off with ‘The Great One’.
During a recent interview with Gorilla Position, Elias called out The Rock and said the following:
“I hear all kinds of comparisons of The Rock. Of course, he played guitar a few times on Monday Night Raw and if he wants to meet at WrestleMania and come walk with Elias, I’m more than welcome to show him how it’s done.
Here’s the thing, okay? He did a few Monday Night Raws [with a guitar], he did The Rock concerts, and everybody thinks he’s great — he did cover songs, okay? He ripped off Wonderful Tonight and Jailhouse Rock.
Elias is doing originals every single week in front of millions of people all around the world. I’ve got an album out, a documentary out, I’m performing in front of tens of thousands live at all of the events. So The Rock can’t do what I do.”
As we previously reported, The Rock told Cathy Kelley in his recent interview that he was excited to return to the ring. Elias can be a pretty great opponent for the former WWF Champion if he ever returns.
