James Ellsworth was released from his WWE contract, early this month. The rumours regarding the same were there considering James was on the receiving end of several beatdowns in recent weeks. All the women superstars enjoyed beating the hell out of him on live event indicating his time might be over, perhaps.
The Chinless Wonder of the WWE signed a contract with the company back in the last year. Apparently, the deal stayed for one year between the two parties. WWE did not intend to sign Ellsworth for any further roles on-screen that led him to lose his job. To ensure this, he was written off from Smackdown Live by a betrayal by his partner, Carmella.
Many of the fans were quite upset with the news of James Ellsworth getting fired. He was doing a pretty good job in his given TV role. He was pretty good with the mic. But, if his contract would have been intact, he was supposed to get an unthinkable match at Wrestlemania.
According to the reports of John McKenna of the pro-wrestling sheet, Ellsworth was scheduled to face Charlotte Flair at Wrestlemania 34 for the Smackdown Women’s championship. None other than Vince McMahon came up with the idea by himself for this interesting inter-gender matchup.
Late in August 2017, the officials were quite high on this jobber from Baltimore. So, at one point, he was scheduled to win the women’s championship! Plus, he would have kept the women’s Money in the Bank contract won by Carmella and use it for his benefit. Check out the quotes from McKenna, here: (courtesy stillrealtous.com)
“The goal was to get to Charlotte vs Ellsworth at Mania for the Women’s Championship. How they were going to get there is a much wilder tale. We’re talking about as recent as August; these were pretty much plans they had in place. Long story short, it was to make Ellsworth trans.”
As you can see, Ellsworth was about to make himself a woman to compete for the women’s title. It would have been quite interesting storyline since we have not seen anything like this in the WWE. But, with Ellsworth going out of the company, there’s no chance to see it, anymore.
