Mick Foley calls Raw Star a future World Champion

Mick Foley

Mick Foley returned to Raw this week where he announced that he will be the special guest referee for the upcoming match between The Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman.

Though this wasn’t all Foley did during the show as the WWE Hall Of Famer interrupted Elias’ promo and announced that he will be facing Finn Balor at the show.

After his appearance, Foley took on his Twitter to comment on his confrontation with the Drifter, saying that the former NXT Star is a future World Champion:

While Elias has gotten over with the WWE universe in a big way, the biggest problem with pushing him is lack of confidence the company has on his wrestling skills.

It’s worth mentioning here that Elias has only wrestled 4 times on Raw in the past 100 days despite the fact that he has been a part of the programming almost every week.

    It is a midcard gimmick for sure, WWE needs to stop this start/stop push of him. Oh sure, they put him in a match with Cena, but he loses. The following week he gets jobbed out to Strowman. Then three weeks later they give him a win over Apollo Crews. He needs a real program that lasts a few month where he gets some wins over top names.

    Just to clarify my opinion. Yes his current gimmick is a huge part of why he is over. I’m stricly when it comes to world championship material. He needs to evolve his character into something else and let his natural charisma and mic skills do the rest. A little improvement on his in ring skills would help too, not that hes a bad wrestler (far from it), but it could be improved if he wants to have memorable matches in the future if/when he becomes a maineventer.

    His biggest problem is his singing and guitar gimmick. There is so much you can do with it but world champion? Not legit enough. Sure Jeff Jarrett (assuming you consider him a maineventer) had a guitar but he didn’t have a singing gimmick during his main event days.

    Elias may get a shot at the title, but he, like everyone else on the roster, is nothing but fodder for Reigns in the eyes of the old man.
