WWE Releases James Ellsworth

WWE announced on Wednesday that James Ellsworth has been released.

This doesn’t come as too much of a shock since Carmella dumped him last week, and he was “buried” with stunners by the SmackDown women’s division last week during the UK tour.

Ellsworth started his WWE career last year on Raw as a jobber to Braun Strowman before coming to SmackDown Live later in the fall. He feuded with Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles before being aligned with Carmella. He’ll forever be remembered as the man who won the first women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match.

We wish Ellsworth the best of luck with his future.

UPDATE:  Here’s a tweet from Ellsworth acknowledging his release:
