Former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth recently spoke with Andy Malnoske of WrestlingInc.com for an interview. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On his gimmick as Carmella’s dog near the end of his WWE run: “I was OK with doing it, who wouldn’t? It’s Carmella. But to me, I thought the fans thought it was weird, so I’m glad it didn’t last long. But again, I personally didn’t mind it but I think it was weird for people to watch.”
On his new independent gimmick as the Intergender Champion and which female wrestlers he would like to defend the title against: “I’m wrestling Emma next month who’s also in the indies, she goes by Tenille Dashwood now. I think on the independent scene she’s probably the biggest name that’s a girl. I would love to wrestle Carmella for it, that would be cool, I think people would love that. But yeah, as far as the indies go I can’t wait to get in the ring with Emma next month, I think that will get a lot of people talking.”
On Ronda Rousey joining WWE: “I mean, she’s one of the biggest stars in the world. As far as star power, she’s great for WWE. It’s good for both, it’s good for her and WWE, I think it’s a good relationship with them too. I think both parties will make a lot of money off of her being there. She’s awesome and she’s been working hard in the ring and I think she’s gonna surprise a lot of people and be a really, really good wrestler.”
