Elias Ezekiel has a brand new gimmick up his sleeve and he’s apparently having the time of his life with it. The wrestler is enacting a double function, pretending to be himself in addition to his brother. He made a shock look on RAW final week throughout a Kevin Owens promo, baffling the WWE Famous person and a lot of followers.
Ezekiel is now revealing much more proof that he’s not Elias. On Tuesday, ‘The Drifter’ went a step additional by importing a photograph of himself and his ‘brother’ collectively. Within the photograph, he and his older brother are seen standing arm-in-arm. They seem like in the identical room and are having fun with one another’s firm.
It’s clearly Photoshopped however sustaining his pretend brother persona, Elias captioned the photograph, “Haters will say it’s photoshopped, however we all know the reality.”. He additionally questioned followers, “What do you guys suppose?” and acquired a variety of suggestions. “I consider I took this picture,” Madcap Moss wrote.
On subsequent week’s RAW, Owens teased making Ezekiel take a lie detector examination to show he’s mendacity. After dropping a number of matches on RAW to Jaxson Ryker, the previous 24/7 Champion vanished from WWE programming in August 2021. Elias was “useless,” in response to a voiceover, as vignettes of him burning his guitar started to air. There have been rumours that he’s engaged on a personality just like Randy Savage, however Vince McMahon dismissed the thought, saying it was too near the “Macho Man.”
Just a few glimpses of that persona have been included within the WWE 2K22 roster. Underneath his new guise, the 34-year-old has but to wrestle.
WWE appears to be pushing this gimmick fairly arduous too. Is it doable that WWE will get each of those people on digicam on the identical time? Is that this a short-term or long-term mission that WWE intends to see by to completion and can push more durable if followers start to like the segments?
One factor is for certain. Owens is an enormous a part of why that is going so nicely. His dedication to the plot is admirable, and he’s going to nice lengths to forestall Elias from impersonating another person.
