Daniel Bryan banned James Ellsworth from the arena
SAN DIEGO — Moments after kicking off the show, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan was interrupted by a still-distraught Carmella, flanked by James Ellsworth. The two continued to agonize over The Princess of Staten Island having her Women’s Money in the Bank Briefcase taken away last week, which they considered a great injustice. Ellsworth, riled up by what had been done to his associate, got right in Bryan’s face with some rather disparaging words, claiming that The Beard hides behind a “kooky injury” and doesn’t have the guts to compete in the ring anymore.
Seemingly amused by Ellsworth’s lack of respect, Bryan opted to ban him from the entire arena on the spot! The Princess of Staten Island was left in a state of complete dismay as Ellsworth was dragged away by security, kicking and screaming all the way.
