Elias Samson did not set out to become a professional wrestler. A lifetime musician and natural showman, Elias spent decades writing and performing his own music. Choosing to stay true to his craft and avoid “selling out” to a major label, Elias Samson became a thriving underground artist. He played and performed all over the country. He was a member of dozens of prominent bands and music acts. But he never really rose above the independent music scene.
After decades of hard touring and songwriting, Elias began to suffer from severe scarring on his vocal chords. He had surgeries and treatments. He tried countless therapies. But his voice continued to deteriorate. He picked up a gravelly, coarse quality. And not the kind of bad voice that others found endearing. It physically hurt him to sing. The scarring on his vocal chords brought Elias to tears when he spoke above a normal talking voice.
As Elias’s music career began to diminish, he started to pursue other hobbies. After a few months working out at a local powerlifting gym, Elias was introduced to a couple of independent professional wrestlers. He attended a few local cards and started to watch everything he could. Stumbling upon an EWA PPV, Elias realized that he could become a performer once again, but in an entirely new way.
For Elias, joining the EWA is as much about the showmanship and performance as it is the fighting. He’s here to show the EWA fans what a very different kind of performer looks like. Because Elias is a truly unique artist. A one of a kind talent.
