James Ellsworth is yet to wrestle a single match following his WWE release last month, but the former World Title contender has already drafted a checklist of potential opponents.
In a move parodying the list Cody Rhodes produced following his own release in 2016, Ellsworth posted the names directly to social media, but there's a twist. While Cody's featured names like Kurt Angle, The Young Bucks, and Adam Cole, Ellsworth's list is entirely female, because that's apparently how 'The Chin That Eats The Pin' rolls.
Among the names are a scored-out Becky Lynch, who defeated Ellsworth in his final WWE match, and Carmella, his former BFF. Mae Young Classic competitors Mia Yim, Candice LeRae, and Mercedes Martinez are there, as is the recently released Emma, and Impact Wrestling's Laurel Van Ness. Curiously, women's MMA star Cristiane 'Cyborg' Justino also features.
Notable indie worker Britt Baker has already responded to her inclusion:-
Is Ellsworth about to carve out a niche as an intergender worker? It certainly seems that way. He's not exactly a 'dream match' wrestler, so perhaps this is his way of staying relevant following his release.
Besides, who wouldn't want to see 'Cyborg' battering the chin-less scamp around the ring?
