James Ellsworth Reportedly Being Investigated

James Ellsworth who is well known due to his time with the WWE. Ellsworth has put over numerous wrestlers in his time on the main roster. Ellsworth was released in late 2017 by the WWE, because they didn’t have any use for him, but he returned on June 17, 2018 to help Carmella defeat Asuka at Money In The Bank. He was then fired on-screen by Paige and hasn’t been seen since on WWE television. Ellsworth is currently a wrestler in the indies and has also wrestled in Impact Wrestling where he lost to Eli Drake. Ellsworth’s name has recently come up and we will discuss in this video.

WWE aired a “coming soon” vignette for The Freak during tonight’s Survivor Series Kickoff pre-show on the WWE Network. You can see a GIF from that vignette below.

Lars worked a match at Saturday’s NXT TV tapings before “Takeover: War Games II” against an enhancement talent. That match should air Wednesday on the WWE Network.

There’s no word yet on when Lars is headed to RAW or SmackDown but the timing is interesting as it looked like he was about to begin a NXT feud against Keith Lee.

Stay tuned for news on more post-Survivor Series call-ups from NXT as it was recently reported that WWE officials were considering moves after tonight’s pay-per-view.

M.A LeBlanc <![CDATA[ESPN profiles David Arquette’s return to pro wrestling, Bloody return in Los Angeles]]> http://www.onlineworldofwrestling.com/?p=175793 2018-11-18T23:22:15Z 2018-11-18T23:22:15Z ESPN.com is featuring a story about David Arquette returning to the world of pro wrestling on the independent scene in recent weeks, including this past weekend in Los Angeles.

The article notes Arquette’s first involvement with wrestling for the “Ready to Rumble” WCW-themed movie released back in 2000. Promotion for the film would then see Arquette get involved in WCW storylines on TV and become the WCW World Champion.

Arquette insists it isn’t a publicity stunt and the bumps are very real.

“This time it’s far more intense, far more grueling. I’m 47 now. The body doesn’t react the same way as when you were younger. My first match with [RJ City] was just brutal. You get a whole new respect when you start participating in it and you really find out how real, honest, and complicated it is. It’s not a publicity stunt, that’s for sure. It’s too painful for that. It’s something that’s been gnawing at me for years.”

Arquette also talks about the day he was informed he would become WCW Champion, something he was informed about backstage by Diamond Dallas Page.

“I thought it was a bit of a joke and he was like, ‘No, I’m serious.’ I think [my] response was, ‘That’s a terrible idea. No, we can’t do that,’ but then they explained the storyline that I wasn’t pinning a wrestler, I was pinning Eric Bischoff.”

Arquette made headlines this past weekend and was even trending on Twitter at one point after highlights of a death match with Nick Gage went viral at the Joey Janela LA Confidential event, which streamed live on FITE.tv.

As you can see in the clip below, Arquette suffers a serious cut to his neck, looks to completely stop the match and then decides to finish it off.

Please don’t watch this video if you are bothered by blood, hardcore wrestling, profanity, Nick Gage, or David Arquette. With that said, I’m posting it due to questions being asked by the wrestling community.

Per the report, Lee gave notice to Impact officials that he was finishing up. This likely took place at the Impact TV tapings earlier this week in Las Vegas. The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online reports Lee’s deal ends on December 31 of this year.

The same report indicated that WWE has interest in Lee and bringing him into the NXT developmental system. WWE is expected to announce forthcoming talent signings in the beginning of January, which would match up with his Impact deal expiring.

Billy Corgan on the Future of Wrestling

By TheRinger.com’s 

On how the pro wrestling world has evolved in the past year:

I don’t want to say I predicted that you would have this turnaround in, say, one year, but I certainly saw what was coming. Let’s walk it back a few steps. When I was at TNA and involved in the conception of what we would call the Broken Universe—working with Matt and Jeff [Hardy] and of course David Lagana and Matt Conway and Jeremy Borash and everybody else who was involved in sort of building this thing—it started from an idea I had in booking where I kept saying, why can’t we do stuff out of the building? The general backstory being TNA Wrestling was underwater financially. And we were spending so much money shooting segments, I started saying, why can’t we shoot stuff off-grid? Why can’t wrestling be more of a 24/7 universe as opposed to a once-a-week, here-we-are-in-the-building type of thing?

And that cracked the door open to allow us to start doing stuff off the grid, which led, of course, to the Broken Universe stuff. And the reaction to that sort of told me that the future of wrestling lay more in a combination of fantasy and reality. And all you need to do is look at something like the growth of wizard cons and comic cons and stuff like that. People are very comfortable now with sort of going deep into the fantasy side of a show, of the characters, but at the same point, they’re very interested in the people who are behind the scenes. Not just talent, but also as the creators. The people who do the animations or whatever.

So you see this sort of burgeoning world coming out that I would call more of a 24/7 approach to content where you can have the show, but also the show behind the show is almost just as interesting as the show. So how do you balance that? And then of course you look around the world, and you look at models like the UFC and how they produce their content, where one minute Dana White’s a showman and one minute he’s a comedian and he’s sharing funny meme videos. You know what I mean? You don’t have to be anything traditional anymore. You can be whoever you are, and you kind of work with the public and you kind of find a space that they work towards.

So we saw that coming. Now, the emergence—to answer your question faithfully—the emergence of people like Cody [Rhodes] and the [Young] Bucks and their ability to take their personal brand and flip them into actual ticket-selling beyond the realm of a promotion, or in support with a promotion like Ring of Honor, and that sort of emerging world of, let’s call it, the non-WWE universe, which is this kind of Wild West of all these promotions, talents. And everybody’s starting to align because they realize there’s so much power there.

That’s where we find ourselves now with the NWA. We’re in this sort of glue position where we can bring disparate parties together. And through the history and legacy of the NWA, we can create events.

The Fightful report states that Becky suffered a broken nose and a concussion during the invasion angle that closed last night’s RAW. Becky was checked by doctors after the show and did not immediately travel to St. Louis with the rest of the blue brand crew for tonight’s show. The injury may have happened when Nia Jax hit Becky with a stiff shot during the brawl, busting her open. There is said to be some minor heat on Jax for the injury.
