The Elite, formerly known as The Black Knights, is a heel stable that was first made after CWMania 2016.

INVADING WWE

On The September 22nd 2017 edition of Collision Course, after The Black Knights attacked Goku and Star Butterfly, their leader Cody Atlantis cut a rant promo, which ended with him stating that they will do something no one will see coming and will cause "big-time controversey."

The following week on September 25th, The Black Knights (consisting of Cody Atlantis, Brandi Atlantis, Morbidia, The Young Bucks, Marty Scrull, Adam Page, Gateaux, Kenny Omega / Chameleon, Low Ki, Davey Richards, "Lone Ranger" Magnus, Douglas Williams / Wuya, Chris Kirkman / Calypso, Beth Tezuka, Zack Sabre Jr., Eddie Kingston / Freelance, Bram, Wallow, and Rockstar Spud) appeared outside the parking lot of the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario California, where WWE's Monday Night RAW was taking place. They stated that an invasion was about to happen in order to rescue former CW superstars Finn Balor ("The Claw" Fergal Devitt in the CW), Luke "DOC" Gallows, and Karl Anderson and attack their former leaders The Hardy Boyz (Jeff & Matt Hardy) as well as Kurt Angle, who was RAW GM at the time. The invasion was similar to DX's invasion of WCW back in 1998.

Later that night on RAW, during the main event pitting The Hardy Boyz, Finn Balor, and Lou Jackson against Goldust, Jason Jordan, Roman Reigns, and The Miz, The Black Knights hijacked the show and attacked all the superstars, commentators, referees, camera men, and producers as well as destroying the ringside and equipment, similar to what Nexus did back in 2010. They then proceeded to trash the backstage area and continue their attack on all the superstars and WWE personnel before kidnapping Finn Balor, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson and putting them in the trunk of their limbo. After Cody peformed the Cross-Rhodes on Kurt Angle, The Black Knights escaped in their limbo, leaving RAW in ruins from the attack.

It all began on the September 22nd Collision Course when Colt mistakenly accused Grado for burning his kendo sticks, and refused to be friends or fight alongside with him, as shown in WarGames when he let him and Grado get defeated by Christopher Daniels and Kazarian. On the October 6th edition of Collision Course, it was revealed that it was Marty Scrull who burned the Kendo Sticks, as shown in security camera footage presented by Jeff Jarrett. The 2 reconciled in the process, until the following week when Colt turned on Grado, revealing that he and Scrull were always friends and that they planned the kendo stick burning incident, with Cabana calling Grado a "useless **bleep** of a human being" and that the fans who support Grado, Goku, and The CW Heroes can stick it, thus ending their friendship permanently and becoming a full fledged heel in the process, though it wasn't the first time he turned heel)
