James Ellsworth

The National Wrestling Alliance passed this along.

The Aldis Crusade with Ten Pounds of Gold kicked off when James Ellsworth was chosen by Austin Idol to face Nick Aldis. This unlikely challenger is best known for being the valet for Carmella, his matches against Braun Strowman and Becky Lynch, but it’s victories over AJ Styles that brought him to the Aldis Crusade. The underdog competitor made his nwa debut yesterday at Championship Wrestling From Hollywood as he fit the criteria set forward by Nick Aldis and Austin Idol on who could be the first challenger for the Ten Pounds of Gold.

The Aldis Crusade will see the NWA Champion Nick Aldis (or whoever defeats Aldis) go forth to defend the Ten Pounds of Gold over twenty times over the next sixty days. Reaction to James Ellsworth being chosen has brought a flood of response and opinions on his worth as challenger. Austin Idol defended the choice stating that Ellsworth’s resume while eclectic does fit the criteria.

The entire match will be available later this week on http://www.YouTube.com/NWA

The NWA sat down and interviewed James Ellsworth and you’ll hear that entire interview on the NWA Network Podcast available on.

  1. The year – 2051
    The place – McMahonison Sqaure Garden

    “….and those who bleed and fought for this title – Dusty Rhodes (POP) Steamboat (POP) Flair Race Thesz (POP) (POP) (POP) Elsworth ( Earth shaking pop)….” eh maybe not

  2. Oh and for those knocking his ring skills. He has no chin no body but let this guy work in a serious fyymanor and he is pretty damn good. Don’t confuse a charer and body wih actual skillt

  3. “I was half a second away from winning the WWE world heavyweight championship… what if that half a second became a full second?”

    Wait what? No. That’s not an improvement!
