It was reported yesterday that James Ellsworth was released from his WWE contract. While the details of his release are unknown, we speculated that it could have been because his one-year deal with the company ran out and they opted to not re-sign him.
Several wrestling personalities took to Twitter to react to the news of his release, which you can see below:
Classy statement. Be very proud of what you accomplished, Pretty Jimmy. Very few performers get to live the WWE dream. Chin up (figuratively), strong, keep moving forward.. Seeya down the road, pal. https://t.co/1IGPVSZVJN
