Booker T Tired of James Ellsworth
Despite his mostly positive crowd reaction Booker T is tired of James Ellsworth and feels he is undeserving of his prominent spot on SmackDown.
“I’m tired of seeing James Ellsworth. This kid had one hell of a run, but send him back to the independents,” said the WWE Hall of Famer on his podcast.
I’ve seen this guy at a convention, I was appalled, but this guy is going to live this run for quite some time. He’s probably getting a good price out there on the Indy show. They’re probably bringing him in as an attraction, but the thing of it is, me personally I’m not a hater, but you must ride it for as long as you can. Look at Hornswoggle, he worked with WWE for 6-7 years, you can’t hate people like that, but you wonder how James Ellsworth fit into the WWE mold? It just makes you wonder. There are people in my Reality of Wrestling just scratching at the door, so when I see Ellsworth, there’s just gotta be a way, but you have to wait your turn, but it’s definitely getting a little old.
