Ever since James Ellsworth made his return to WWE, he has done his job of ensuring that Carmella has hung on to the Smackdown Live Women’s Championship belt.
But how long will he be around?
According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ellsworth is not under contract and is just being used on a per-date basis. In addition, since Since this comeback, he has only been working TV dates, but no house shows.
This latest run has helped his independent bookings, as he is one of the few guys featured on WWE television that indie promoters can use.
However, this might also mean they have no long-term plans for his role, because if they did, he would be signed to a deal.
Honestly, this news doesn’t surprise me. He will never be featured as a main performer, as his role is simply to be a comedy act. However, he is incredibly entertaining, and as long as Carmella is the champion, Ellsworth will be around, doing her bidding!
