Jeffrey Logan Sciullo is a professional wrestler and musician. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand under the ring name Elias.

In early 2014, Sciullo was signed to a developmental deal by WWE under the ring name Elias Samson. He made his NXT debut at April 24, 2014, tapings, working as an enhancement talent and teaming with Buddy Murphy in a losing effort against The Ascension. Samson was then used sporadically on television throughout 2014 and early 2015, mostly appearing as enhancement talent to wrestlers such as Baron Corbin.

In August 2015, Samson debuted a new drifter musician character in a match taped prior to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, approaching the ring with a guitar before defeating Bull Dempsey. Samson then entered the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament, where he was paired with Tucker Knight, but the two were eliminated from the tournament by Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson. On the December 23 episode of NXT, taped before NXT TakeOver: London, Samson defeated Bull Dempsey with a diving elbow drop. In the following weeks on NXT, Samson defeated John Skyler, Corey Hollis, Steve Cutler, and Jesse Sorensen. On March 23, 2016 episode of NXT, Samson suffered a loss to Johnny Gargano. After the match Samson attacked Gargano, but Apollo Crews came in to make the save. On the April 6 episode of NXT, taped at NXT TakeOver: Dallas, Samson lost to Crews. Following this loss, Samson started a losing streak, first losing to Shinsuke Nakamura on the May 4 and to Finn Bálor on the May 11. On the November 16 episode of NXT, Samson defeated Nathan Cruz.

On the April 10, 2017, episode of Raw, Samson made his main roster debut, appearing on the stage briefly during an eight-man tag team match, as well as walking through the crowd during another match later that night. Samson continued to appear in the background playing his guitar during backstage segments over the next few weeks. On the May 22 episode of Raw, Samson made his in-ring debut, defeating Dean Ambrose by disqualification after The Miz intentionally attacked him. On the June 19 episode of Raw, as Samson was performing a song in the ring, Finn Bálor, who was making his entrance for his scheduled match against Bo Dallas, interrupted him. Later that night, Samson attacked Bálor as he was being interviewed backstage, telling him to "never upstage him again". On the July 24 episode of Raw, Samson defeated Bálor in a No Disquailification match after interference by Bray Wyatt. Later that week, WWE shortened his ring name to Elias.
