Elias got the biggest reaction in recent memory in his Monday Night Raw promo

If you can guarantee one thing from an episode of Monday Night Raw nowadays, it'll be a song from WWE's resident drifter, Elias.

Since his call-up to the main roster in 2017, the man who was once pretty much an afterthought on NXT has had the crowd in the palm of his hand whenever he speaks or sings.

No-one could expect some of the reactions Elias receives, especially after fans at Full Sail were telling him to 'drift away' from NXT almost immediately.

The one thing Elias doesn't actually do too much of though is actually wrestle on Raw, which should really come with the job he's being paid to do.

But whatever he's doing to get crowds to not only boo him, but then repeat his signature 'Walk With Elias' catchphrase every week is clearly working.

Elias is currently shacked-up in a partnership with Kevin Owens, and the two will team up to face the pairing of Bobby Lashley and 16-time World champion John Cena at Super Show-Down on October 6.

Before Owens fought Lashley on last night's episode on Raw, the duo took a minute to address the live crowd in Seattle, and Elias made a comment that got the loudest prolonged booing since Roman Reigns' appearance after he defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania.

Speaking about the pairing of Cena and Lashley as a tag team, Elias said: "Kev, it doesn't make sense, it's like having a basketball team in Seattle."

And that REALLY got Seattle's backs up.

For a bit of context, the city's NBA team - Seattle SuperSonics - was moved to Oklahoma City in 2008, and the Raw crowd were clearly big fans, as the reaction proved.

The booing went on for around five minutes, and it was almost reminiscent of the heat that superstars used to get in the Attitude Era.

Needless to say fans on Twitter loved the pop Elias had at the Sonics, and for getting the reaction a true heel should.
