WWE.com has posted the following:

“WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar James Ellsworth. WWE wishes Ellsworth the best in all of his future endeavors.”

Ellsworth first worked for WWE as an enhancement talent against Braun Strowman in July of 2016. He officially signed a WWE contract last November.

Ellsworth was being used as a comedy valet for Carmella and his last televised match was only last week on SmackDown Live, where he lost to Becky Lynch via submission.
