As reported, James Ellsworth has been released from WWE after a year on the main roster. Starting off as a mere enhancement talent to Braun Strowman on Raw, his unique look garnered a following that built an interest to bring him back. He would then become a member of the SmackDown Live roster, even defeating WWE Champion AJ Styles. Over the past couple of weeks, the women's roster has been gang attacking him to oblivion, which was a way to write off his character.
Ellsworth commented on his release, thanking WWE for the opportunity.
Ellsworth also received support from current and former WWE talent.
