Elias spoke with Wrestlezone’s Kevin Kellam on WKQX Radio while promoting Monday’s RAW TV taping at the AllState Arena in Chicago.
Elias was asked about his hopes for this year’s Wrestlemania event at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and said he’d like to have an incredible performance that would be followed up with a marquee match:
“Oh yes, I’ve been on the road and I’ve landed at Wrestlemania, and we’re doing it again. This time it’s going to be different for Elias. Last year I had this great performance lined up and it was ruined, so I cannot let that happen again this year.
If it was up to me, I would be given ample time to do a full on performance. I would play all of the instruments that I can play, really show off to the world, then maybe have an Intercontinental title match and follow that up, maybe go out against somebody like The Undertaker or John Cena, anybody that can really top off a great performance.”
The subject of dream matches came up, and The Drifter said Wrestlemania would be the perfect place to settle his issues with John Cena and Undertaker, even providing a tagline for a match with the latter:
“It’s really about big stars and big moments. I’ve had a lot of great moments; Wrestlemania, where all eyes around the world are on you there. At Wrestlemania, I’d love to wrestle John Cena; I’ve got a lot of issues with that guy. I’ve got issues with The Undertaker, I’d love to take The Undertaker out. I think ‘The Living Truth vs The Dead Man’ is a great story right there. Those are two guys I have in my sights right now, and one way or another I’d like to get a hold of them right now.”
