James Ellsworth has been released by WWE, which wishes him the best in all of his future endeavors” Ellsworth had this to say about his year with WWE:

James Ellsworth’s WWE Career

James Ellsworth had one hell of a year with WWE. He made his first WWE television appearance back in July 2016, losing a squash match to Braun Strowman. The Monster Among Men was mowing through ‘local talents’ on a weekly basis back then, but something about Ellsworth endeared him to the WWE Universe. He was eventually signed to a WWE contract and became a regular character on the SmackDown brand.

He had a notable program with WWE Champion AJ Styles, even picking up a win over the champ in a non-title match (with some interference).  He was later paired up with Carmella and was instrumental in her winning the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match.

During WWE‘s recent European tour, Ellsworth did a comedy angle that saw him getting beat down by the women of SmackDown Live.
