Indie News: James Ellsworth joins the Jericho Cruise
What's the story?
The Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager At Sea continues to grow day by day as they approach their sail date at the end of October. Jericho announced on his Instagram account on Monday afternoon that none other than former WWE sensation James Ellsworth has signed on to take part in the Cruise of Jericho.
In case you didn't know...
Ellsworth rose to fame within the WWE Universe after getting squashed in a singles match against Braun Strowman in July of 2016. He was brought back a few months later to get in the middle of the feud between AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose over the WWE Championship.
The heart of the matter
Take a look at Jericho's announcement on Instagram below:
The support from the WWE Universe was so tremendous that it led the WWE to sign him to a full-time contract. He would eventually become the manager for Carmella and assist her in winning the first ever Women's Money In The Bank Ladder Match.
Ellsworth joins a massive list of professional wrestlers who will be a part of the cruise including Kenny Omega, Dalton Castle, Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Marty Scrull, Deonna Purrazzo, Mandy Leon, Jay Lethal, and many more.
The cruise will feature a Sea of Honor wrestling tournament, three Fozzy concerts, three Talk Is Jericho podcast recordings and several other entertainment options.
Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the latest on who will be added to the cruise next. The cruise will leave Miami, Florida, on October 27th and return on the 31st.
James Ellsworth was one of the greatest success stories of the WWE over the past few years. It's very rare when someone makes an appearance as a jobber then is hired full-time with the WWE for 18 months.
I hope there is a time and place where Ellsworth can be back in the WWE once again.
