As noted earlier, Elias had to pull out of the King of the Ring tournament due to an injury. It’s a legitimate injury to his ankle and this is not a storyline.
There’s no word yet on how long he will be out of action. The injury forced WWE to rewrite at least part of tonight’s SmackDown Live because Elias was scheduled to wrestle Chad Gable in the semifinals of the KOTR tournament.
We’ll pass along an update on Elias when we get it.
