It was revealed last night by Ryan Satin on WWE Backstage that Elias has inked a new deal with the company. WWE’s official announcement of the contract extension is below:
Elias has agreed to a multi-year contract extension with WWE, as first reported on WWE Backstage.
WWE’s resident songbird, Elias has multiple 24/7 Title reigns to his credit, as well as victories over the likes of John Cena and Finn Bálor. He recently declared his entry in the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble Match, pointedly calling out WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
Elias, like many of the current talent, got his start under the WWE banner as Elias Sampson in NXT in 2015. Later on in 2017, Sampson then drifted on to “The Drifter” moniker showing up in backstage segments on the main roster before he began asking fans to silent their cell phones as he serenaded them in the ring.
