James Ellsworth has made up a list of dream opponents now that he left WWE akin to the one that Cody Rhodes created a year ago.
A few weeks ago WWE released the news that they would be letting go of SmackDown Live Superstar, James Ellsworth. The year and a half that Ellsworth was a WWE Superstar was a wild ride for the former enhancement talent. It began with a squash match against Braun Strowman and lead to him challenging AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.
The last part of Ellsworth's WWE career featured him acting as a valet to Miss Money In The Bank, Carmella. He even aided The Princess of Staten Island in winning the briefcase, at least the first time around anyway. Carmella eventually became disillusioned with her lap dog, however, and the final few nights of Ellsworth's time with the company revolved around him being beaten up by the entire SmackDown Live women's division.
Therein lies the thinking behind the list of competitors James Ellsworth tweeted out this week. In February Ellsworth's WWE non-compete clause will come to an end and will be free to return to the independent circuit. When Cody Rhodes left WWE he wrote a list of wrestlers on the indies that he wanted to compete against, and Ellsworth has done the same. As you can see below though every wrestler Ellsworth wants to get his hands on is female.
Clearly, Ellsworth wants to restart his indie career in the same way that his WWE one came to an end, by wrestling women. The most amusing part of the list he posted is that Becky Lynch's name is already crossed out and the one woman he really wants to still get his hands on is his former friend, Carmella. Other than that, there are some pretty big names featured on the list including Rosemary, Brandi Rhodes, and Candice LeRae.

Ellsworth will get a lot of bookings when his non-compete clause comes to an end and since he's entering a world where inter-gender wrestling is more common than in WWE, then why not make this his gimmick? Ellsworth could tour the world getting beaten up by some of the industry's best women while making a lot of money along the way. Plus, who knows, maybe one day he will get that dream match against Carmella.
