James Ellsworth

The official Twitter account of former WWE star James Ellsworth issued a statement on Friday evening, on his behalf of his attorney, “categorically” denying recent online allegations brought against him this week.

Ellsworth, who was released from WWE last November and has continued to make on-and-off appearances for the company, was accused of sending nude photos of himself to a 16-year-old girl after following her on Twitter and later adding her on Snapchat.

He quickly denied the accusations in a statement that read:

Wrestling Perspective, which had been hosting Ellsworth’s “DuhCast” podcast online, announced on Friday that they will no longer host the show due to the accusations and have deleted all episodes of the podcast from the website.

Ellsworth last appeared for WWE in a backstage segment filmed during Smackdown 1000. He also made a surprise appearance at Impact’s Bound for Glory PPV in New York.
