Vince McMahon nixed Elias reboot plans because he looked too much like Randy Savage

Elias has not been seen in many weeks on WWE television and now more details have come out on what exactly happened.

WrestleVotes noted on Twitter that there was no end game for the Elias vignettes that aired a few weeks back and the goal of those vignettes was to kill off his music gimmick.

It was also noted that the initial rebranding idea had him looking too similar to Randy Savage with colorful trunks and his beard and Vince McMahon didn’t like it so they are now “back to square 1.”

The last vignette for the Elias reboot aired in August. There’s no word yet what the new plans are and when he might pop up again on WWE television.
