How do you get him over? Baron Corbin is already doing the loner character.

I didn't see the point of his debut as he did nothing. He was booked to debut but not to make any kind of impact by getting involved in something.

We weren't even given an idea of who he will begin fueding with. His appearance was a wasted one.

Not sure where they are headed with him constantly appearing in the background playing his guitar while other talent dismiss him as some sort of nobody.

He was booked as a jobber in NXT and based off what I've seen on Raw so far there's nothing to suggest he will be anything more than that on the main roster.

Shame because he has a decent look and a gimmick that could work. NXT wasn't the best fit for him with the fans there wanting indy style pure wrestling characters and not gimmicked wrestlers.

What a shit singer. I don't know if that's his usual singing voice or he's told to sound worse for cheap heel heat.

What's the point in him facing a jobber? It's too predictable and the segment quarterly rating no doubt sucked.

He will soon by low card jobber, but at least he's got a gimmick for the role instead of just being bland.

I'm actually quite liking this guy so far, the way he trolls the fans with his songs is great and brings back memories of how The Rock used to do it with his 'concerts'.

He has a great look and isn't too shabby in the ring from what I've seen so far. Intrigued to see his feud with Finn Balor although I don't expect Elias to be victorious in this one.

He was made to look really strong against Finn, but I don't see their interaction as a long term thing.

I'm surprised he's been put straight in with a top tier guy instead of working his way up.

It's going to be hard for him to keep the heel heat fresh from just cheap putdowns to local fans about their local history such as sport teams.

I like Samson. I might tune in long enough tonight to see whatever segment he might be in. I've always been a fan of his ever since he debuted in NXT. Perhaps just for the sake of seeing something different, I'll try and stick it out on Raw tonight.

I like this guy, I really enjoy now his character is kind of a mix of JJ Jeff Jarrett and the Rock in concert. The songs where he trolls the crowd and city he's in are good fun.

He's a very capable worker as well with a good look and size. I hope he can at least establish himself as a upper mid-card act, the fact he is holding his own with a top guy like Balor is encouraging.

His catchphrase is a question that's going to get a babyface response, so it doesn't work.

They should give him his surname back because just a first name is too bland for his musician character.

His concerts are already old and tiring because there are only so many ways to put down a city before it becomes repetitive and samey.

Elias is comedy gold and seems to get alot of legit heat

He needs to move on from this thing with Titus worldwide and have a meaningful feud against a decent level babyface before people start to get bored of him

They should bring back his surname. Too many people are known by one bland name.

Asking who wants to walk with him is getting him a far to babyface reaction for a heel.

Corey Graves always slags off his singing. Heel commentator slagging off heel wrestler makes no booking sense.
