WWE Releases James Ellsworth


WWE just announced that James Ellsworth has been released from the company.

The company put out a statement saying, “WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar James Ellsworth. WWE wishes Ellsworth the best in all of his future endeavors.”

Ellsworth was last on TV this month when he lost a match against Becky Lynch. He then spent a majority of the UK tour getting beat up by the women’s roster.

James first appeared on WWE TV last year shortly after the brand split when he wrestled Braun Strowman as an enhancement talent and subsequently gained a cult following.

He was signed to a deal almost one year ago to the day and at one point wrestled for the WWE Championship against AJ Styles on Smackdown Live. Eventually he was paired with Carmella and has been her manager ever since.

Ellsworth tweeted about his release and said, “Thank you for letting me live my dream, thank you fans for all the support, l’ll continue to prove .”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
