8. “James Ellsworth is giving unrealistic expectations to small guys” – Santino Marella
During a recent appearance on Steve Austin’s podcast, former WWE Superstar Santino Marella talked about small guys like James Ellsworth being featured in WWE World Title matches nowadays.
Below is what Santino had to say about this:
“I have a couple of kids who are great, talented, 5’11”, 6’0″. You can’t walk around and show up at 160 lbs. You can’t have ‘Santino Marella’ show up at 138 lbs. Just, you’re going to get hurt and I’d be doing you a disservice if I said you wouldn’t. And I’ve become brutally honest with these guys.
There are guys like, right now, James Ellsworth or Spike Dudley, and just having them kept that hope alive, so there is a chance because those guys have been there and from time to time they get these little, scrawny guys and it sets up a lot of these kids for disappointment.”
