Elias Samson

– Former WWE NXT Superstar Elias Samson made his main roster in-ring debut on last night’s WWE RAW from Grand Rapids, Michigan in a non-title match against WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose. Samson won the match after The Miz hit the ring and nailed him, causing Ambrose to get disqualified to play up their Extreme Rules match. Samson made his first RAW appearance on April 10th after losing a “Loser Leaves NXT” match in March. He has made several RAW appearances over the past month but this was his first match.

Samson, who played the guitar and sang a song before the match, was booked strong against Ambrose. He also laid Ambrose out after the match with his snap swinging neckbreaker. Below is video from the pre-match segment:
