News on the Elias vs. Jaxson Ryker feud

Jun 8, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Current creative plans reportedly call for Jaxson Ryker to be a babyface on the WWE RAW brand.

Last night’s RAW saw Ryker debut a new look and continue his feud with former partner Elias, one week after Elias walked out on the United States Marine during a Memorial Day match against RAW Tag Team Champions AJ Styles and Omos. Last night’s match ended with a count out win for Ryker as Elias walked out on the match.

In an update, PWInsider reports that the plan moving forward is for Ryker to be on the babyface side of the red brand roster, while Elias will continue working as a heel. There had been some speculation on Elias and Ryker switching roles, but word now is that Ryker will be working as a face.

As seen below, Kevin Patrick tried to get a word with Elias after the match but he was in no mood to talk.

Ryker has not commented on the storyline development but he did re-tweet a fan who wrote, “This the @JaxsonRykerWWE I been waiting the same Ruthless attitude that Tna gunner I miss #ImpactWrestling #MondayNightraw”

Stay tuned for more on the Elias vs. Ryker feud. Below are related clips from last night:

    I’m very happy for Ryker especially now he doesn’t have the deadweight of the other guys, forgot them. It was crap how he was bullied for being proud of his country and it made me lose a lot of respect for some on the roster.

    Guy has a great look, works well and is intense on the mic. Really could see him moving up the card with the right booking.

    He looks his age without the long hair…..don’t think getting rid of the hair was a smart move. He’s already on the older side as it is

    WWE had something huge with Elias years ago. They could have put a secondary title on him. But those days are gone, and now he’s essentially mid-card enhancement talent.

    @Nolo his timing could’ve been better. Being proud of his country while it was experiencing mass riots and protests, wasn’t smart at all on his part.
