Elias was in the ring with his guitar. He played for a minute and asked who has his back in the match with Cesaro tonight. Elias then asked who wants to walk with him. He started performing his latest song, called “Third Time’s a Charm” while the crowd was clapping.
However, the music interrupted and Cesaro came out with Sami Zayn. Sami spoke from the stage and the crowd booed him. He told the fans to shut their mouths. Sami told Elias it doesn’t feel good to be interrupted because Elias did the same to him last week. Elias said it’s been a miracle for the past two years if he doesn’t get interrupted. Sami went on ranting at Elias and the fans, and said Elias is going to pay tonight in the ring with Cesaro, and he brought it on himself. Cesaro and Sami marched to the ring.
