Elias thinks it was an “easy decision” for him to be called up to the WWE main roster

WWE star Elias was recently interviewed by Cultaholic at the Performance Center to promote the release of the WWE 2K19 video game. The man formerly known as “The Drifter” talked about returning to the Performance Center, how it has improved since he was stationed there, and being called up to the WWE main roster on Monday Night Raw. Here are the highlights:

Returning to the WWE Performance Center:

“It’s interesting,” Elias said. “This place was home to Elias for, geez, a few years. I’ve been through the ringer here and went through all the steps you could imagine in this place. It’s very interesting to be back and Elias what he is. Just remembering.”

How it has improved since he was there:

“I can’t tell ya because I’m not in the day-to-day here,” said Elias. “I don’t know what it is, but the environment is so good here. The vibe among everybody is cool. All I can say is, they keep making it better and better. Better minds to mold this people, better rings, opportunities in the back there that I saw for people to work on content and create characters and things like that. So it’s pretty cool.”

Being called up to the main roster on Monday Night Raw:

“I got called up quick, man,” Elias said. “Seemed like it was the right time for me. That’s all I can say. The reason? I think that’s obvious now if you watch Monday Night Raw. The way people react and the way the world reacts to Elias. It’s like ‘we have him here in NXT, NXT is awesome, but let’s have him on a global stage and let the world see what Elias has’. So to me, it’s was an easy to decision to put Elias on Monday Night Raw.”
