WWE needs to keep Ellsworth on the roster

James Ellsworth is the hottest thing on the internet now. He secured a huge win against AJ Styles at SmackDown this week and now, he will be facing Styles for the WWE championship on the upcoming episode. While the chances of Ellsworth walking away with the gold are low, it doesn’t mean that WWE should end his journey there.

Ellsworth has become a fan favourite in no time and it would be a good idea to have him on the roster for the longer run. There are some interesting storylines that WWE could give him and we are going to list them down in this slideshow.

#5 A place in the Cruiserweight division

The CW division could use a character like him

Seeing James Ellsworth as a comedic character is one thing and seeing him as an experienced wrestler is another thing. While the latter idea might not work immediately, it is bound to work slowly. This is why he has a place in WWE’s Cruiserweight division. The problem with WWE’s currently division is the lack of characters.

Apart from TJ Perkins and Brian Kendrick, the fans barely recognise the other wrestlers. A wrestler with characters coming into the Cruiserweight division is a good thing for everyone and Ellsworth fits in perfectly for the role. He need not go on to win the championship, but he could be a solid mid card player in the division.
