• There Were Discussions For James Ellsworth To Become The WWE Champion

James Ellsworth was brought to RAW in 2016 as a jobber, where he got squashed by Braun Strowman.

Ellsworth gained some steam when he said the following before facing Strowman:

“Any man with two hands has a fighting chance.”

This resulted in him getting more work in WWE and facing then WWE Champion AJ Styles, and even pinning him on multiple occasions!

During a recent appearance on the Cheap Heat Productions Podcast, Ellsworth revealed that there were discussions about him becoming the WWE Champion.

Below is what he said:

“People would come up to me like, ‘Hey, man, in the meetings they’re talking about you winning the Title.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, okay.’ People did say it to me.

Vince McMahon himself never said it to me, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it.

I’m a realist – they’re not gonna put the Title on me, and they shouldn’t.”

Ellsworth appeared in various storylines in WWE between 2016 to 2018.
