Backstage News on WWE Nixing a plan to take the intercontinental title of Seth Rollins

adminNovember 29, 2018

WWE had allegedly plans for Elias to win the WWE Intercontinental Title a few weeks back.

Elias is currently receiving what appears to be a significant babyface push on RAW, with a slow build, but it seems that WWE would really push him through the red brand. @WrestleVotes reports that Elijah was set to win the title of current champion Seth Rollins when they became Dean Ambrose heel last month. There is no word yet why the title change was nixed.

Elias is now feuding with Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and General Manager-Elect Baron Corbin. Rollins will defend his title against Ambrose at WWE TLC pay-per-view December 16th. It is rumored that push for Elias will continue into the WrestleMania 35 season.
