WWE Superstar Elias Scores Top 10 Album, ‘Walk With Elias’ Documentary Debuts July 30
On July 30, Loudwire will walk with Elias. We can’t divulge the details quite yet, but you’ll be able to see what we're talking about on the WWE Network when Walk With Elias: The Documentary premieres.
Elias has become a breakout superstar in WWE ever since he suddenly made the transition from NXT to the main roster. For those unfamiliar with the man, he's not just a wrestler, he's also a singer-songwriter and recently scored a sponsorship with Fender Guitars. Elias makes each Raw taping must-see television with his original compositions — usually written about his disdain for whatever city he happens to be in.
These weekly jams became so popular that WWE actually commissioned an album by Elias, which debuted on iTunes yesterday (July 23) to mass acclaim... from the WWE Universe, at least. During last night’s edition of Monday Night Raw, Elias’ album ascended to No. 6 on the iTunes Top Albums chart, outselling acts like Taylor Swift, Panic! at the Disco and Post Malone. The man himself even performed a chunk of “Walk With Me” after being interrupted numerous times throughout the night.
Elias: Live From Bourbon Street also just premiered, documenting the performer’s surprise concert during this year’s Wrestlemania week.
The Walk With Elias album is only the beginning; an entire documentary has been produced, showcasing the making of Walk With Elias, the superstar’s ascent through the music industry and his preparation for what was supposed to be the most epic moment in Wrestlemania history.
If you’re a subscriber to Loudwire’s YouTube channel (and, particularly, our Wikipedia: Fact or Fictionseries), you may see a familiar face in Walk With Elias: The Documentary, so be sure to catch it on the WWE Network right after Raw goes off the air on July 30. Check out a preview of the film here.
Summerslam weekend is also right on the horizon, with NXT Takeover: Brooklyn and the Summerslam PPV invading the Barclays Center on Aug. 17 and 18, respectively. Stay tuned for Loudwire’s upcoming coverage of Summerslam weekend and an exclusive interview with Elias himself dropping after Walk With Elias: The Documentary premieres.
