James Ellsworth recently spoke with CBS Boston about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On who has helped him in WWE: “That is definitely 100 percent Chris Jericho. The day after I did the match with Braun Strowman he contacted me on Twitter and wanted me on his podcast (Talk Is Jericho). I went in and did the podcast with him the next time I was at TV. Ever since then we text all the time. He gives me advice and helps me out. He’s just an outstanding human being. Absolutely. Especially a guy that’s one of my favorites. A guy that I grew up watching and was so entertained by. He started in ECW in 1994, I believe. I was about nine years old, and I noticed him right away. And in WCW, I was definitely a Jericholic as a teenager. He always stays entertaining. In wrestling, he’s one of the best ever. So, to have him helping me out, it’s just amazing. It just shows you what type of guy he truly is. He doesn’t have to help me out, but he does it because he wants to. It’s amazing.”
On how his life has changed since appearing on TV: “Yeah, it’s been happening! Especially after this week. I went grocery shopping at Walmart and took a lot of pictures. It’s been cool. I’ll never say no to a picture or autograph when I’m in public, because I’m in the situation I’m in because of the fans, 100 percent. They’re the ones who tweeted and Instagrammed WWE and said “hey we want this guy back! He was fun to watch!” It’s all because of them, so I’ll never turn a fan down.”
