Roman Reigns has accepted the challenge put forward to him by Elias for a match at the Money in the Bank.
Elias was introduced to SmackDown during the Superstar Shakeup last week by Vince McMahon as the biggest acquisition for the brand. Roman Reigns was also drafted to the blue brand and announced himself by decking both Elias and Mr. McMahon with a superman punch.
This week, Shane McMahon opened the show by addressing Roman’s attack on Mr. McMahon and called out Roman. As Roman was about to start the brawl with Shane when Elias attacked him from behind. Shane and Elias then took down Roman before leaving in a hurry.
Elias then challenged Roman for a one on one match at Money in the Bank in his song backstage. Roman later accepted the challenge in a backstage interview saying Elias would not be able to sing again as he will break his jaw.
Money in the Bank is scheduled on 19 May at XL Center in Hartford, CT. To be up to date on all the news related to the event, you can check out our MITB center.
