A more reasonable naturalistic explanation is many Elvis impersonators. Besides they didn’t care enough to go check the grave out like the disciples did for Jesus.
Actually they did! And since Elvis’ name is misspelled on the grave that must mean something! And besides, you can’t prove that Elvis’ grave actually contains Elvis.
Elvis never claimed to be God or claimed he would resurrect himself as Jesus did, so there is no religio-historical context to do so.
