They had the PERFECT jobber. Nobody looks like Ellswroth. His puny face alone makes everyone look like Goldberg. What a bunch of fucking idiots.

No shock. With Carmella kicking him to the curb on Smackdown a couple of weeks ago and the way he was beat up by all the woman on the Smackdown European Tour. It seemed like his time was about done.

Now they can go back to use McGliglicuty and Bo as jobbers, two guys nobody gives a fuck and are around the same size as half the roster.

He had a good run. He'll make a few bucks in the indy scene.

The dream is dead.  These types of guys never last long (Colin Delaney, Zach Gowan, etc.).  Honestly I don't know why they ever signed him.  They could've paid him per appearance through the Styles/Ambrose angle and then that was the very natural end of that storyline.  Sticking him with Carmella never worked IMO and he never got to wrestle again (except, ironically, this week against a girl).

What do you mean it never worked it, it got Carmella an actual response from the crowd because before she use to come out to outright dead silence i use to feel sorry for her. Shit the  last half of 2016 and early 2017 it was sad when F-A-B-O would hit and it was dead silent

You heard a crowd reaction that I didn't hear then because she still doesn't seem over to me.  And everyone shit all over that MITB finish as badly as anything this year.

The James Ellsworth thing had pretty much run its course. Once you give the cult jobber wins, along with something resembling a push, you erase the loveable loser aspect that built him up. The Mulkeys finally winning on WTBS over The Gladiators was a huge deal that everyone who saw it, or later heard or read about it, remembers. However, that pretty much was the end of them in JCP. There was nowhere else to go. They were gone before the year was out and only occasionally turned up, sometimes one or the other and sometimes both, in the future.

Daniel Bryan talking about Ellsworth having a monster wang, the nickname "The Big Hog" and that the locker room does The Big Hog Dance was the highlight of WWE programming this year.

The point of a jobber is to make others look good. Why not use Ellsworth rather than the likes of Dallas or Axel on account of the guy himself being pretty much the ultimate jobber? The regular WWE guy looks like Andre the Giant next to Ellsworth.

I think from WWE's perspective, they just don't need a jobber under contract.  Any indy wrestler would give their left nut for an opportunity to job on Raw or SD! and then WWE only has to toss them like $50 for that night, so why pay someone a downside guarantee?  The business has changed so much from the '80s when jobber matches were routine, but none of those guys were under contract either.  Maybe Barry Horowitz finally got himself a deal after the Chris Candido win, but maybe not.  And as tamalie pointed out, that was actually close to the end for Horowitz in the WWF too.

Jobbers used to get over a hundred plus comp for travel to job on RAW and/or Smackdown

It was a good deal all around for him. He made some good money and got dynamite exposure, all from being a dorky looking guy who could take a beating.


For a brief moment his shirt was the top seller, so I'm sure he made some decent coin from that.

I'm sure he can piggyback a couple years worth of semi-lucrative indy bookings from this.

I'm remembering the Nasty Boys were jobbers in the AWA individually but as Verne kept losing his big names to WWF, he shortened Sags name (Sagonovich I think?) and turned them into a tag team.

I guess their post jobber success is the exception that proves the rule?

Back then especially guys almost always started as jobbers.  Shawn Michaels and Arn Anderson (using his real name Marty Lunde) jobbed in Mid-South as rookies, etc.  Lots of examples. 

I think Sags was also used as a referee as well as a jobber his rookie year.

Apparently Vince had an idea to do Charlotte vs. Ellsworth at Wrestlemania where Ellsworth had become a full-fledged tranny.

So there's the LGBT "friendly" stories Stephanie promised!
