Former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth recently participated in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything). Here are the highlights:
Vince McMahon’s reaction to AJ Styles tearing his tights during his TLC match against Dean Ambrose: “Vince McMahon was always cool with me. I didn’t speak to him a lot, but he was always good. Two stories. After the Strowman match, he went out of his way to tell me what a great job I did. i Will always remember that.
“AJ Styles, when he tore his tights in the Ambrose match, I was in the Guerilla position ready to do a run-in, and I remember Vince screaming “GET THE CAMERA OFF HIS ASS, PLEASE!”
What’s the craziest thing he has seen backstage: “Personally, the craziest… well, really cool… The Undertaker came to the locker room and personally shook everyone’s hands. That was CRAZY to me. He didn’t have to do that. Come backstage and thank 29 other people for being in the rumble.
Other than that, nothing really “crazy” or nuts happens. There will be times where fans would try to sneak backstage, but security was really quick on nabbing them up and arresting them”
What he learned about himself during his time with the company: “I learned so much. When you’re there you learn so much about television, TV angles, Slow yourself down on the mic. I mean, you’re working with some of the best in the work like Dean Malenko and Arn Anderson. I learned so much from them”
