Elias to give “Farewell Musical Performance” as 24/7 Title reign continues
Mere moments after R-Truth celebrated his astonishing 12th 24/7 Championship win, Elias bashed The Rapping Superstar with his guitar to kick off his third reign with the oft-defended prize. Elias has already turned back a challenge from Drake Maverick in the recording studio, but neither Drake nor the growing number of Superstars in pursuit of the 24/7 Title will be giving up anytime soon, so, as revealed on WWE’s Instagram story, the singing Superstar will be giving his final in-ring musical performance in order to keep his location secret and his reign secure. It’s a smart strategy from a canny Superstar, though Elias’ desire for one last turn in the spotlight could lead to his most disastrous interruption yet.
