SKFabe: Hottest WWE News of the week (18 Nov, 2017)
In just a few hours, Sportskeeda Wrestling will be bringing you the hottest sports entertainment action from Survivor Series. We thought that a week's recap, leading into the big event, could prepare you for the events to come, at the massive show.
We saw a lot of great action in the ring, this week. The ratings and, in some ways, the fan reaction reflected the same, too. However, there was just as much that happened behind the scenes that piqued our fancy.
We bring you the seven hottest news items that happened this week. Sit back and immerse yourself in the world of sports entertainment news.
Let's start with the unfortunate piece of news that took the WWE Universe by storm this week.
#1 James Ellsworth released, still very thankful
He came in as enhancement talent only. Because of his unique look, he got over with the WWE Universe and was inserted into the thick of things, on SmackDown Live afterwards. He picked up wins over AJ Styles and became Carmella's sidekick.
Unfortunately, this week, James Ellsworth's fairytale run came to a bitter end, and he was released from his contract. We're glad to see that he is thankful for his time in WWE, and will possibly use his WWE run, to leverage his independent career.
This is what Ellsworth had to say about his time in WWE:
Ellsworth has made it clear that when his contract with WWE runs out, he will start taking independent bookings and will still remain associated with sports entertainment. Thank you for all the memories, sir!
