WWE fan favourite Elias issues a WrestleMania challenge to The Rock

During his time as a full-time superstar in the WWE, from time to time, The Rock would sing a song to the fans in the arena with his guitar in the middle of the ring.

One fan favourite today in the WWE that does something strikingly similar to what The Great One did is of course Elias.

There are a lot of similarities between the two, so it comes as no surprise that The Drifter has issued a challenge to The People's Champion.

In fact, he wants the challenge to take place at WrestleMania.

Speaking to The Gorilla Position, via Ringside News, Elias spoke about the similarities between himself and The Rock, and also issued a WrestleMania challenge to the Hollywood star.

He said: "I hear all kinds of comparisons of The Rock. Of course, he played guitar a few times on Monday Night Raw and if he wants to meet at WrestleMania and come walk with Elias, I’m more than welcome to show him how it’s done.

"Here’s the thing, okay? He did a few Monday Night Raws [with a guitar], he did The Rock concerts, and everybody thinks he’s great — he did cover songs, okay? He ripped off Wonderful Tonight and Jailhouse Rock.

"Elias is doing originals every single week in front of millions of people all around the world. I’ve got an album out, a documentary out, I’m performing in front of tens of thousands live at all of the events. So The Rock can’t do what I do."

This isn't the only time which Elias has called out The Rock, as he issued a challenge for The Great One for WrestleMania 34 earlier this year as well.

It would be interesting to see The Drifter and The People's Champion clash in the ring, and one would have to think it will happen at some point in the future with the number of times WWE is allowing Elias talk about it.

However, if The Rock was to return to the WWE, many believe he will likely be used to his fullest extent and be placed in a feud with Roman Reigns. Recent rumours have stated these two could face each other in the main event of WrestleMania 35.
