As noted, James Ellsworth is not taking any more independent wrestling bookings, and his last indie event was at last night's Big Time Wrestling event in Altoona, PA. Ellsworth cut an emotional promo at the show, which you can watch above, and confirmed his WWE status.

"It's fitting that I officially announce right here in Western Pennsylvania where this WWE journey started that I have officially been given a WWE contract," Ellsworth said (thanks to Wrestling Inc. reader Brad O'Hara for sending us the video).

Ellsworth then broke down and said, "you all made my dream come true, thank you very much!"
