James Ellsworth

During tonight’s 10/11 edition of “Talking Smack” on the WWE Network, General Manager Daniel Bryan revealed that James Ellsworth will challenge AJ Styles for the WWE World Championship on next week’s 10/18 Smackdown Live from Denver.

Bryan had already announced that set for next week’s Smackdown Live is Alexa Bliss vs. Naomi and Jack Swagger vs. Baron Corbin.

  1. If James Ellsworth wins the WWE Championship (which he won’t) it’ll be right up there with David Arquette winning the WCW Championship.

  2. Does it? I suspect no one will even bat an eye at this in a few weeks, when AJ defends against “real competition” again. If Ellsworth were to WIN the World Title, then we could could talk about a title reign being tarnished.
