Elias can be an example of a slow burn to main event status. The guitar thing kind of reminds me of Cena’s rap gimmick. He looked good against Cena and worked a program with him which itself is kind of a big deal. The guy is still young too (29). I see him winning the IC or US title next year, and possibly even have a ppv match against a guy like AJ/Rollins/Reigns

I'm a big fan of his, and hope for good things. Even without being some top dude or whatever, I'd be fine with him getting a random title shot and eventually getting anytime of belt. He fills his role really well and seems like he has the potential to be slotted up higher when need be.

I can't wait until he he's his own cooking show, "Who Wants to Wok with Elias." He opens each show with a song burying the studio audience and the guest he has on his show. He gives the audience gag gifts like tickets to concerts that have already happened and autograghed stuff from other famous artist that have misspelled signatures. The food always turns out great but he never shares with the guest or the audience.

I've (to my shock and dismay) actually come around on Elias, but not every entertaining act needs to be a main event thing. The dude is entertaining in his current role but nothing I've seen leads me to believe he's a main event caliber guy; it's like saying heel Santino should've main evented.
Honestly I see him being the next big shiny toy who they give a huge push to and put in a major match with some long-established face, only to for no apparent reason boot him down the card the second the feud is over.
