WWE Reportedly Nixes Plan To Take Intercontinental Title Off Seth Rollins


The Twitter account WrestleVotes recently reported that WWE had plans for Elias to win the WWE Intercontinental Title a few weeks back as part of his current significant babyface push on Raw.

Original plans called for him to win the title from current champion Seth Rollins when they turned Dean Ambrose heel last month. Obviously, that didn’t happen and there’s no word yet on why the title change was nixed. Currently, Elias is now feuding with Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and General Manager-Elect Baron Corbin.

“Interesting tidbit for those who like this type of thing: prior to all of RAWs creative plans going up in flames last month, the original Ambrose heel turn angle was to see him cost Rollins the IC title. Who was scheduled to win the strap you ask? Elias.”
