Quote Elias is set up on the stage with his guitar to try doing his song again. Baron Corbin comes out to interrupt and tells Elias they have a lot of things to do tonight, and they just don't have enough time on RAW to accommodate Elias' performance. Elias protests and says the crowd wants to walk with Elias. Corbin says he's the GM, and what he wants is more important than Elias' little guitar performance. Corbin says Elias is fired if he doesn't do what Corbin says. Elias protests and starts singing, but Corbin yells and tells him to cut it. Corbin starts talking, but Elias comes up behind him and smashes his guitar over Corbin's back.
 
Finally the Elias babyface turn I have been waiting on so they can capitalise on his cheers and he doesn't have to continue with the same old stale heel routine every week.
 
He doesn't need to pander to the fans, just not slag them off, then his turn will only have a slight difference anyway.
 
Corbin was really good in the segment and did his job perfectly. It's good for him that he's someone on the full time roster to fued with.

Yeah good to see them pull the trigger on the face turn and give a fresh spin on the Elias character.

Corbin will be a good first feud for Elias the face as Corbin always gets good heel heat and Elias can go over.

I just hope they don’t water down Elias’ character too much and have him suck up to the fans.

I'm still #WalkingWithElias and the face turn can be great if done right - he needs to keep a stone cold sort of attitude where he doesnt overly beat down heels but he can have that dont trust anyone attitude whereby no one is sort of safe from his actions.

Kind of a shame his face turn wasn't on the hulu presentation of Raw... I forget how long it is before Raw ends up on the WWE Network, it's like 2 months or some such thing right? I would like to see this segment where it happened.

Yeah Rico for any bits of Raw not shown on Hulu just use YouTube. I often just watch Raw and Smackdown whole episodes via the clips WWE put up as they show all the key goings on and shorten the matches down to a couple of minutes which most of the time is fine as so many tv matches are just throwaway.

Quote Elias is in the ring or a song. He shows us a replay of him bashing a guitar over Baron Corbin last week. He says since Corbin probably can't hear him in the ring, and Elias is a giver, he's going to go to the back and give that music right to Corbin's face. Elias gets to the back. He runs into Dana Brooke who asks for a song, but Elias declines. Elias keeps walking and he knocks on Corbin's locker room door. Baron won't come out, so Elias tells him to keep his mouth shut through the door, and then he starts playing a song next to the closed door. Elias trashes Corbin in the song until Corbin comes out and gets mad. Corbin goes back in his room and slams the door. Jinder Mahal comes out of nowhere and attacks Elias from behind. Jinder beats down Elias, and then Corbin comes out and informs Elias he's in a match with Jinder next.

- Elias vs. Jinder Mahal: Jinder backs Elias into the corner off the opening bell, but Elias fires back with strikes. Jinder comes back with a slam and then he puts the boots to Elias while he's down. Samir Singh hits a cheap shot on Elias from ringside while Sunil distracts the ref. Jinder works over Elias' ribs now, which Elias is selling from the backstage beat-down before the match. Elias finally breaks free and hits a flurry of strikes. Jinder misses a shot in the corner and Elias catches him with the Drift Away for the three count.

Winner: Elias

Elias looks like being the main guy to benefit from the reshuffle in the roster, due to Reigns being ill.
 
He was on top form and Corbin was your typical heel authority figure by putting one of his suck ups against him in a match.
 
I think at Survivor Series if we get the expected Kurt vs Corbin 5 vs 5 we can be certain Elias and Jinder will be on the teams.
