The man known as James Ellsworth was a guest on the Talk is Jericho podcast this week, talking about the magical Raw where he was decimated by Braunnnnnn Strowman and thanking his parents for getting him over.
While on the show, Ellsworth recalled receiving praise after his mauling by Braun from the most important man in WWE, Vince McMahon:
“I come through the curtain. Arn [Anderson] comes up to me and he said, ‘You did a very good job, kid. Vince wants to see you.’ I’m like, ‘Vince wants to see me? What?’ So I go up to gorilla where Vince is and he’s coming down the stairs looking for me. He’s like, ‘Come here!’ He said, ‘Good job, kid! Great job!’ and shook my hand… That meant the world coming from him obviously.’ “
Jericho made a point of saying that praise from WWE’s chairman is rare. Maybe Ellsworth has a future in WWE?
