Michael Cole has confirmed on SmackDown last week that we won’t be walking with Elias for some time as he has torn his pectoral muscle (READ).
He was written off from the WWE TV as he was involved in the hit and run storyline with Jeff Hardy, he was then removed from the Intercontentional Championship tournament as well.
This is the second time in a year that Elias has been injured, back in September he was injured and was out for a couple of moths. He then returned and had a match at Wrestlemania.
It looks like this time he will be out for a good amount of time and will return next year. I feel that he should come back as a heel as I was able to connect with it. Anyways we wish a speedy recovery to him and he should come back stronger.
