WWE Raw star Elias recently spoke with The Baltimore Sun ahead of tonight’s Royal Rumble PPV and below are some interview highlights:
We’re coming off Raw 25, and you had a big moment where you were able to smash a guitar over John Cena’s back. What was that night like for you?
Raw 25 ended up being fantastic for me. John Cena had that coming to him ever since Christmas Day as far as I’m concerned. He finally go what was coming to him.
What was it like to work with Cena?
That’s where you want to be in the WWE. John Cena has been the franchise for so long. In the ring across from John, you know you have a lot of eyes on you. As a performer, that’s where you want to be as far as I’m concerned.
You talk about your time in NXT, it’s been about nine months since you made the move. What has the transition been like?
As far as I’m concerned, there wasn’t much of one. I know in the eyes of the viewing audience there’s a huge transition, but as far as I’m concerned there wasn’t that big of one. A lot of the things that I’m doing now were things that I was doing for a long time. I have to say, NXT and the whole developmental system and the performance center really prepare you for every aspect of what’s to come.
Of course, the place you’re leading them next is the Royal Rumble this weekend. This will be your first Rumble. How excited are you for it?

I’m definitely looking forward to it. It’s a huge opportunity on a huge stage in one of the most honored pay-per-views that WWE has. If you win this thing, you go on to WrestleMania to main event that. I’ve got a great performance planned for the Rumble. I’m not sure where I’m coming in yet, but I will absolutely do my best to make the most of that. It’s an absolutely historic night for many reasons, but especially for myself because it’ll be my first Royal Rumble.
