James Ellsworth made a miraculous return to the WWE at Money in the Bank PPV event. Previously he enjoyed a full-fledged WWE stint during the 2016-17 run on Smackdown. It was a dream run for a superstar like him where the company even gave him chances to compete for the WWE Championship against AJ Styles.
Later, he joined another angle with Carmella to help elevate her career. There are very few examples present in the WWE where we have seen male valets for female superstars. James Ellsworth played that role effectively for the Princess of Staten Island. Be it winning MITB briefcase or the title retention; he helped her all the way.

His role was the same even after coming back on Smackdown Live. The officials re-formed the alliance between James Ellsworth and Carmella. It helped her to win matches against a strong name like Asuka. If it was not for him, the former champ could never beat the Empress of Tomorrow, Twice.
Once Carmella lost the title, the Smackdown creative team did not need him anymore by the side of Carmella. So he had to leave the WWE locker room for once again. WWE terminated the short-term deal between him and the company. Interestingly, James Ellsworth was back on this past week’s Smackdown Live.
PWInsider.com reported the ‘chinless wonder’ was present at the backstage during Smackdown tapings. Some also believed he would be back by the corner of Carmella on that night. However, we did not see him coming out on live TV.

Later, the source confirmed he was there to film some contents. We still don’t for which purpose it was. Here are the updates, (courtesy SportsKeeda.com),
“Many fans thought that James Ellsworth was backstage at SmackDown Live so that he could once again be part of a storyline with Carmella, but according to PWInsider, Ellsworth was backstage to do some filming for WWE–even though it’s currently unknown as to what he was filming for the company.”
Carmella had lost her Smackdown women’s championship and is not likely to regain it anytime soon. So the officials will not need James Ellsworth anymore, at least for the rest of 2018. So we don’t see him coming back shortly.
