James Ellsworth became an internet sensation in the year 2016 after showing his face on WWE programming for the first time.
He featured in a squash match against Braun Strowman. The audience reaction was more than good for him. All of them wanted to see him more on the programming which is why he was allowed to make another appearance on Smackdown Live.
That appearance received success, too as the crowd blasted out wanting him to see, every single night. So, at one point, WWE was forced to sign him under the Smackdown Live banner. It was unbelievable the weird-looking guy who could barely wrestle got hired by the world’s biggest pro-wrestling promotion of the world.
The dream run for him continued for the better part of 2016 and 2017. He was not out there to wrestle on each week. Instead, Carmella aligned herself with him to work together. Ellsworth, being a typical heel, worked as a male valet for the princess of Staten Island handing her the Money in the Bank briefcase.
It made a male superstar like James Ellsworth, a regular member of the female roster. It was good to see him bring a different funny feel to the women’s division, every week before the company released him in the fall of 2017. Back then, he had his last match in the company in the form of an intergender match against Becky Lynch.
It was a hilarious concept by the officials which was taken quite seriously by James Ellsworth even after leaving the company. So, in recent times, he created his own belt named the Intergender Championship. By posting a picture of the same, he declared his intentions to defend it against any woman on the pro-wrestling circuit.

It is quite an interesting option for a guy like Ellsworth who is a no matchup against almost all the superstars due to his small size. It will also give more booking to him around the independent scene. Also, the first gimmick attached to him will also be retained. If he can be successful, then there might be someday when the WWE takes him under their wings, again.
Recently, the ‘chinless wonder’ featured in a match against Magnus in an NWA World Championship match and came up lost. Also, he competed in a match against WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler in his ACW homecoming. Going forward, he is expected to be seen in numerous Intergender matches.
