Elijah Burke got his start in professional wrestling by training at Ohio Valley Wrestling. Things came full circle for "The Pope" when he returned to the OVW ring on September 11 and won the OVW Television Title on his first night back against the Marauders' Flash Flanagan. He quickly got into a rivalry with the Marauders, losing the gold to Shiloh Jonze due to the numbers advantage. This eventually led to a steel cage match against Shiloh Jonze. Although, Elijah didn't win the title back, he left everything in the ring for the OVW fans. Elijah said after the match that it gets harder every time he has to leave. He is touring the world as we speak, but have we seen the last of Elijah Burke in OVW, or will the Pope be seen again in 2014?
