From a jobber against Braun Strowman on Monday Night Raw, to a WWE Championship match against AJ Styles on SmackDown LIVE, it's been an incredible couple of months for James Ellsworth.

Not only does he now hold a 2-0 record over AJ Styles, the WWE Champion, Ellsworth is now topping the merchandise sales list following the release of his new t-shirt.

Ellsworth's shirt is selling more than the likes of Goldberg, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose, the man who actually handed over the shirt on this week's SmackDown LIVE.

Despite his recent run on TV and his championship match, Ellsworth is not officially signed onto a WWE contract, but with his growing popularity and the humour he adds to the blue brand, it wouldn't come as a surprise if he stuck around for a bit longer.

In fact, there are already talks of him being an entrant in the 30-man Royal Rumble in January.

Even if it's not for the long haul, Ellsworth's time in the WWE has been memorable, not only for himself, but for the WWE Universe, and he's recently been interviewed to discuss his recent stint with the company.

Whilst being interviewed on the 'Hit The Ropes' podcast, Ellsworth was asked a wide range of questions, including what he'd like to do next with the company if given the chance.

When asked about a possible next venture, Ellsworth revealed that fans on Twitter want him to have a rematch with Strowman, but he himself is eyeing a match with The Miz.

He said: "A lot of the fans wanna see a rematch between [Braun] Stroman and I. I just wanna give the fans what they want.

"And the majority of fans on Twitter want me to get an entry to the Royal Rumble, which would be totally fine with me. It would be so cool. So I'm big into giving fans what they want. So I hope I enter into the Rumble."

When questioned about a rematch with Strowman, he continued: "That's one of the things fans have tweeted about, but I personally would like to work with the Miz.

"He did drop me on the ramp about a month ago, and I haven't really seen that since. If I'm going to be on SmackDown LIVE, I'd like to seek revenge, I guess."
