Yes, that was the best heat from a crowd I’ve seen in a long time. Elias and Owens mic skills are great I just wish Elias would stop the old same bit he does each week and go straight for the throat against the crowd.

He was the star of the night and held the crowd in his hands brilliantly for how long he was out there for a promo then a match.

I guarantee now that American crowds will copy us English and start chanting OHHHHH WALK WITH ELIAS to the tune of Seven Nation Army by White Stripes.

Great thinking by Elias to play the tune on his guitar. Who knew he could play a song on the spot that the crowd randomly chant to him on TV for the first time ever LOL It's like the adopted song of UK sports fans. It's sang to Michael Van Gerwen at Darts as it's his walk on music and Anthony Joshua at the Boxing for two sporting examples.

Didn't even make the Hulu presentation of Raw. Couldn't have been that great.

Playing the song shows he's done his research. The UK crowd loved him and US crowds are starting to as well.

Elias is usually cut from Hulu. I doubt that will be the case for much longer given that he's now a face and as such his global appeal will strengthen immeasurably.

More solid promo work from Elias this week, so far I’m liking him as a face, they’ve replaced the insults toward the local area and sports teams etc with him mocking his opponents which so far has proved quite amusing which is good considering how restricted talent are with their promo material in the family friendly environment.

With Elias’ look and promo skills I can see him going all the way to headliner level although they may end up tweaking his gimmick like they did with Cena by removing the rap gimmick.

Called it last week. Knew the American sheep would copy the English with the Seven Nation Army tune.

The loss doesn't affect him because it wasn't clean and he will still be over with fans.

I hope he finds a way to be part of Survivor Series this sunday. It would be a waste for him not to be booked.

even SCSA is Walking With Elias

Quote  "I'm good friends with Brock Lesnar and it'd be fun to work with Brock 'cause I was supposed to all those years ago, said Austin - referring to when he walked out on the company in 2002 because they booked Lesnar to defeat him on Raw, something Stone Cold believed should happen on pay-per-view.

"I also really think Elias is doing well," the Texas Rattlesnake continued. "I'd like to work with that guy to elevate him. I think he's on his way to being a top guy.

"I've known Brock forever and we're good friends. But Elias has been making more and more progress. The character is coming around.

Quote Back to the ring with Elias. He strums his guitar, and then we seem to cut to a video package about Seth Rollins.

- Elias is introduced again, he trumps his guitar, and then the Lucha House Party comes out to interrupt. We cut to commercial. Back from the break, Elias complains about constantly being interrupted. The Lucha House party members interrupt and say they love entertaining the WWE Universe just like Elias. They've decided that tonight, they want to walk with Elias. Elias says okay then he'll sing his song, then he instructs the crowd to turn off their phones and shut their mouths. Elias sings a song trashing Grand Rapids, and then asks the Lucha House Party for their opinion. They give it a thumbs down. Kalisto seems to think he can do better, so Elias steps aside and Kalisto takes the stool and guitar. Kalisto starts playing, and Elias asks if he'd like to do a duet with him. Elias grabs his other guitar, then he smashes it over Kalisto's back. Elias runs out of the ring while the other Lucha House Party members check on Kalisto.

That was a really poor segment to put Elias in the ring with guys who can't use mic skills.
 
Even if it had been Elias on his own it would have still been boring with him doing same predictable weekly shit.
 
I don't know why he was turned back heel in Big Show quickness but it was a poor decision when he's over and could make the company a lot of money on babyface merchandise.

Not sure why the sudden switch back to heel, maybe it was to work the Jeff Jarrett angle? Maybe the feeling was Elias did better work as a heel and was losing momentum as a babyface, I would tend to agree with that. 

Trouble with Elias is with this gimmick it's hard to imagine him as a top guy, as a heel he gets great heat by insulting the crowd and the area with his songs/promos, but ultimately his role is then to usually put a face over. 

Likewise as a babyface he would warm up the crowd with his mic skills but would then normally do the job  for a heel talent.
