Elias – ‘I Was Supposed To Wrestle John Cena At WrestleMania 35’



In a recent interview with “For The Love of Wrestling,” former WWE Superstar Elijah (Elias) discussed the original plans for wrestling John Cena at WrestleMania 35 and how the Doctor of Thuganomics segment transpired.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On how he was supposed to have a match with Cena: “That was actually originally supposed to be a match, which I was really excited about. But due to some things and movies and whatever going on it turned into this ‘Doctor of Thuganomics’ deal. Which is cool. To have his original character come out there, New York, 80,000 people whatever it was … To be able to say you did WrestleMania with John Cena, it’s really cool man.”

On not being sure what the inner workings of the planned match were: “I had found out maybe months before …  I think I’d have to go back and watch the TV but I’m thinking I might have even planted seeds in my promos leading up to WrestleMania … I know that there was also talks of it the year before but then it actually ended up being John and The Undertaker … As far as like what was going on in the inner workings of the creative mind of it all, not sure what the plan was there.”
