November 27, 2020
Former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth recently spoke with Andy Malnoske of Wrestling Inc for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On his favorite moment during his run in WWE: “If you’re asking what my favorite moment was, it was that, wrestling for the WWE title. It’s AJ Styles, who’s the best wrestler in the world, in a main event match on SmackDown, favorite moment.”
On how he came to be a WWE Superstar after working as an ehancement talent against Braun Strowman in 2016: “Luckily for me, it was just lightning in a bottle. Right opponent, Braun Strowman, got 15 to 20 seconds of promo time, it just all came together so well. That performance that night with Braun Strowman, fans got behind it after that and I appreciate every fan that’s ever helped me out because of that.”
On his interactions with Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon: “Vince is the boss, I’ve had a couple conversations with him up there. It’s like any other job, he’s the boss, so very employee-to-boss conversations. Shane’s more ‘one of the boys,’ so I’d talk to Shane. Stephanie, I didn’t see her much because she was on RAW and I was on SmackDown, but when I did see her she was very sweet and always said hi. That’s about it.”
On working the independent scene, Billy Corgan’s NWA and a potential WWE return in the future: “I’m doing stuff with the NWA, Billy Corgan owns the NWA now… So I’m working with them a lot, I’m doing as many indies as possible. I get to travel the world still and do my thing, and then when the time is right, I think you’ll see me back in WWE.”
