New WWE Hall of Famer “Double J” Jeff Jarrett recently was asked which mid-carders he believes are ready for the main event. Besides Seth Rollins, Jarrett also mentioned fellow “musician” Elias.
“I think Elias is a true main-event rivalry away from breaking to a completely different level,” said Jarrett. “Not to say that [Elias isn’t already] a main-eventer, but when they have that real rivalry, because if you look back and look at Stone Cold and Rock, Stone Cold and Vince McMahon, Hogan and Savage, Hogan and Warrior, you can just go all the way down that line.”
“You gotta look at where Lex Luger was at [in WWE] and when he jumped to WCW. Overnight, he became Sting’s ally, and Sting was on the fence in the nWo storyline. And so, all of a sudden, Lex was that personified WCW face that name his name there, and he really helped nWo a lot more than people give him credit for. Because, again, it was another rivalry made. Lex Luger against nWo, Sting against nWo. And I think Seth and Elias are right in that.”
