Elias Professional wrestling career
Independent circuit (2008–2014)
Elias wrestled extensively on the independent circuit for various promotions in the Northeastern USA, primarily for the International Wrestling Cartel (IWC) under the ring name Heavy Metal Jesus, Logan Shulo. While in the IWC, he won the promotion’s Super Indy Championship and World Heavyweight Championship.
In early 2014, Elias was signed to a developmental deal by WWE under the ring name Elias Samson. He made his NXT debut at April 24, 2014, tapings, working as an enhancement talent and teaming with Buddy Murphy in a losing effort against The Ascension. Elias Samson was then used sporadically on television throughout 2014 and early 2015, mostly appearing as enhancement talent to wrestlers such as Baron Corbin.
In August 2015, Elias debuted a new drifter musician character in a match taped prior to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, approaching the ring with a guitar before defeating Bull Dempsey. He then entered the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament, where he was paired with Tucker Knight, but the two were eliminated from the tournament by Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson.
On the December 23 episode of NXT, taped before NXT TakeOver: London, Elias defeated Bull Dempsey with a diving elbow drop, which he would dub as a finishing move onwards. In the following weeks, Elias would rack up victories over various competitors such as Steve Cutler and Jesse Sorensen.
On the March 23, 2016 episode of NXT, after Elias suffered a loss to Johnny Gargano, Samson would attack him only to be fended off by Apollo Crews. This led to a match between Elias and Crews that took place at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, where Elias was defeated.
Throughout the rest of the year, would compete in different matches against competitors such as Finn Bálor and Shinsuke Nakamura, but he would be on the losing side.
In what would be his final feud in NXT, Elias faced Kassius Ohno in the first ever “loser leaves NXT” match that took place on the March 29, 2017 episode of NXT, where Elias was defeated.
Just a week later, on the April 5 episode of NXT (which was taped as part of NXT TakeOver: Orlando before the beginning of the event), Elias wrestled his final match on NXT as the masked “El Vagabundo” (Spanish for “The Drifter”), where he lost to Oney Lorcan, who unmasked him afterwards.
Elias Raw (2017–present)
On the April 10, 2017, episode of Raw, Elias made his main roster debut, appearing on the stage briefly during an eight–man tag team match, as well as walking through the crowd during another match later that night. He continued to appear in the background playing his guitar during backstage segments over the next few weeks.
In his in–ring debut match on the May 22 episode of Raw, Elias defeated Dean Ambrose by disqualification after The Miz intentionally attacked him.
In June, he started his first feud as part of the main roster with Finn Bálor, who interrupted him during one of his performances. This led to a match between the two, where Elias defeated Bálor in a No Disquailification match after interference from Bray Wyatt. In the end of July, WWE shortened his ring name from Elias Samson to Elias.
Elias was then placed in a feud with Jason Jordan, after Jordan would interrupt Elias during his songs by throwing vegetables at him at No Mercy. This lead to a match between the two at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, where Elias was defeated by Jordan.
On the November 6 episode of Raw, he was defeated by Jordan in a Guitar–on–a–Pole match, ending their feud. Two weeks later, Elias competed in his first title match as he unsuccessfully challenged Roman Reigns for the Intercontinental Championship.
On January 28, 2018, at the 2018 Royal Rumble, Elias entered his first Royal Rumble match at #6, lasting 26 minutes before being eliminated by John Cena. A month later, he competed for the first time in an Elimination Chamber match at the namesake pay–per–view, where he entered last, but was the second participant eliminated by Braun Strowman.
Elias also appeared at WrestleMania 34, where he was attacked by Cena. Three weeks later, he competed at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, where he entered at #20, lasting over 30 minutes and eliminating five wrestlers before being eliminated by Bobby Lashley.
Shortly after, Elias started a feud with Seth Rollins, whom he attacked with his guitar after interrupting his performance. The two eventually faced off for the Intercontinental Championship at the Money in the Bank, where Elias lost.
In October, Elias turned face for the first time in his career, as he attacked Baron Corbin with his guitar.
Throughout November, he started a feud with Bobby Lashley, who would defeat him in different matches via count–out, disqualification or a distraction by his manager Lio Rush.
This led to a match at the TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs event, where Elias defeated Bobby Lashley in a ladder match with a guitar hanging over the ring, after which Lashley would attack him with the guiter after the match.
The following night on Raw, Elias would gain revenge as he would attack Lashley with a guitar. This sparked a miracle on the 34th street fight type of match between the two, in which Elias was victorious.
