Following a couple days of confusion regarding his contractual status with WWE, James Ellsworth made a big announcement on Friday night.
Earlier this week it was noted that Ellsworth was no longer accepting independent wrestling bookings, sparking rumors that he had signed with WWE as an actual full-time contracted performer for the company.
At his final indy booking with Big Time Wrestling in Altoona, Pennsylvania on Friday night, Ellsworth cut a promo announcing to the audience in attendace that he has in fact signed with WWE.
“It’s fitting that I officially announce right here in Western Pennsylvania where this WWE journey started that I have officially been given a WWE contract,” Ellsworth told the fans in Altoona, before getting emotional. “You all made my dream come true, thank you very much!”
