At the Superstar Shake-up edition of SmackDown LIVE, Elias was introduced as SmackDown’s “biggest acquisition” by Mr McMahon. The Drifter came out to the ring and cut a promo and went on to start off the first ever Elias concert on SmackDown LIVE.
However, on his very first night on SmackDown, Elias was interrupted by none other than Roman Reigns. The Big Dog made his way to the blue ring and took down Elias with a vicious Superman Punch.
Then, he went on to have a stand-off with Mr McMahon and eventually took him out too. The Big Dog left McMahon and Elias laying in the ring only to return again and hit a vicious spear on Elias.
The Big Dog then announced that SmackDown LIVE is now officially “his yard”. With this, the two-night Superstar Shake-up event was concluded.
