WWE News: Carmella Pitched the Idea of Pairing Her With James Ellsworth
James Ellsworth arrived onto the WWE scene, last year. With a unique ‘alien-like’ physique, it did not take him a long time to get noticed by the WWE Universe.
By getting sympathy from them, it did not take him a long time to become their favourite one. So, he got inserted into the program between Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles who were fighting it out over the WWE Championship for the entire fall of 2016.
At one point, Ellsworth even achieved three consecutive wins over AJ Styles and also earned an opportunity to compete for the WWE title against him. It was quite an interesting idea created by the WWE officials for the main event scene on Smackdown Live. It ended by Ellsworth betraying Ambrose by costing him in a title match at WWE TLC.
Going forward, he got paired with none other than Carmella on the show which was quite an odd association at the very beginning. In December 2016, the princess of Staten Island said that she found James Ellsworth “uniquely attractive” and formed the heel alliance.
In this case, the role of ‘valet’ got reversed. Generally, the women used to feature in this role, over the years. In this case, the ‘chinless wonder’ took over the spot which turned out to be quite useful for the current Money in the Bank briefcase holder in the female division.
Recently, in the podcast hosted by Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, Dinner with The King, Ellsworth revealed that it was none other than Carmella who pitched the idea first. It was a love-at-first-sight angle for them, as stated below,
“I think it was last year at the European tour in November, she came to me and said, ‘Hey, I have this idea about putting you with me whenever you’re done with the Dean Ambrose, and AJ stuff comes to an end, I have this idea to pitch to them. They put you with me, you fall in love with me, and I use that to my advantage to win matches and get me to the women’s title.”
Later, the moon-walking, trash-talking girl went straight to the Chairman of the board to get the idea sanctioned for them,
“I said yeah, that would be a great idea. I didn’t know her much back then. She went to Vince, and she pitched right to Vince, and Vince loved it. It’s ten, going on eleven months that we’ve been on TV together.”
Carmella was the ultimate winner with this partnership, as she received the MITB briefcase and went one step closer to become the Women’s Champion. It also gave Ellsworth a relevant role on the blue brand.
