For SmackDown LIVE fans, they will be getting used to seeing James Ellsworth in the main event picture.
The former Monday Night Raw jobber is now enjoying a main event run with the blue brand and is even working alongside the likes of Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, and more recently, Kane, Randy Orton, and Bray Wyatt.
Ellsworth made his surprise debut on an episode of Raw, only to be involved in a squash match with Braun Strowman. He lost the match within minutes, and you'd be forgiven for thinking that would be that for the local competitor.

You'd be forgiven, but you'd also be incorrect because that wasn't the end of Ellsworth.
He later appeared on an episode of SmackDown LIVE and his stock has continued to rise.

In fact, Ellsworth is currently enjoying a winning streak over the WWE Champion AJ Styles, picking up two victories in two singles matches.
Of course, he's had major help from Ambrose along the way, but the record books won't say that.
With Ellsworth's new t-shirts flying off the shelves, and him even being involved in their latest UK Tour, it appears that WWE are big fans of the former jobber.
However, someone who isn't a fan is Hall of Famer Booker T. He just can't dig that....you know the rest.
During an episode of his recent podcast, Booker T discussed Ellsworth and his current run with SmackDown LIVE, and he admitted that it's a kick in the face for other wrestlers who are working hard to make it to the top.
He said: “It is old. I’m tired of seeing James Ellsworth. This kid had one hell of a run, but send him back to the independents.
"I’ve seen this guy at a convention, I was appalled, but this guy is going to live this run for quite some time. He’s probably getting a good price out there on the Indy show. They’re probably bringing him in as an attraction, but the thing of it is, me personally I’m not a hater, but you must ride it for as long as you can.
"Look at Hornswoggle, he worked with WWE for 6-7 years, you can’t hate people like that, but you wonder how James Ellsworth fit into the WWE mold? It just makes you wonder.
"There are people in my Reality of Wrestling just scratching at the door, so when I see Ellsworth, there’s just gotta be a way, but you have to wait your turn, but it’s definitely getting a little old.”
