If you recall, when Jarrett returned at WWE Royal Rumble 2019, he worked a short program with Elias.
Thus, when he got an up-close opportunity to see this potential. This is why Jarrett is so high on him.
“He’s got something that you can’t teach, that you can’t coach, that you can’t manufacture. He’s got a unique set of skills. He’s got an aura about him, a charisma about him that’s very unique.
The fact that he can play, and sing, and wrestle, and write music, and tie it all together – it makes him a very entertaining character.”
