james ellsworth smackdown 1000 video interview

James Ellsworth was in attendance at SmackDown 1000 as rumored, but he didn’t appear on TV — instead he was used in a backstage video for WWE.

The video begins with Mike Rome listing all the legends seen on SmackDown’s 1000th episode, which prompts Ellsworth to interrupt saying he should’ve been one of the people featured on the show. 

For those missed it, Dave Bautista made his return to the company with Evolution during the show and teased a match against Triple H at the end of the reunion. 

The show also included an appearance from the McMahon family, Undertaker and more.
