Elias' guitar-playing skills have been affected due to an attack from King Corbin.
According to WWE, Elias suffered a bruised larynx and broken middle and pinky fingers after being ambushed by Corbin on the April 17 episode of SmackDown.
As first reported on WWE’s The Bump, Elias suffered a bruised larynx and broken middle and pinky fingers following the latest attack by King Corbin. The injuries have put Elias’ musical performances on hold, as they’ve hampered his ability to sing and play guitar.
King Corbin has targeted the songbird multiple times in the last few weeks, as the most recent attack on Friday Night SmackDown followed his assault ahead of WrestleMania that sent his rival flying from the WWE Performance Center perch. Elias had drawn the ire of Corbin with repeated songs mocking the regal competitor through song.
Stay locked in to WWE digital and social platforms for the latest updates on Elias’ status.
Elias and Corbin have been embroiled in a feud for weeks and the two ended up having a match at WresteMania 36, which Elias won. Since then, their feud continued every week on SmackDown, with their last meeting being Corbin's attack on Elias.
Fightful will have live coverage of SmackDown, airing on FOX every Friday at 8 p.m. ET.
