• WWE Announces Injury To SmackDown Wrestler
Elias has been in a feud with King Corbin over the past few months. The two men faced off at WrestleMania 36 a couple of weeks ago, where Elias defeated Corbin.
Their feud still isn’t over, as Corbin striked once again on last week’s SmackDown.
The Drifter was set to host a musical performance on last week’s show, but Corbin brutalized him while he was on his way to the ring.
WWE announced on The Bump today that Elias suffered a bruise larynx and broken fingers due to Corbin’s attack.
Below is what WWE posted about this:
Elias’ musical abilities hampered after suffering multiple injuries
“As first reported on WWE’s The Bump, Elias suffered a bruised larynx and broken middle and pinky fingers following the latest attack by King Corbin. The injuries have put Elias’ musical performances on hold, as they’ve hampered his ability to sing and play guitar.
King Corbin has targeted the songbird multiple times in the last few weeks, as the most recent attack on Friday Night SmackDown followed his assault ahead of WrestleMania that sent his rival flying from the WWE Performance Center perch. Elias had drawn the ire of Corbin with repeated songs mocking the regal competitor through song.
Stay locked in to WWE digital and social platforms for the latest updates on Elias’ status.”
