A former WWE/WCW star who began working as a Producer several weeks ago is already done with the company.

PWInsider is reporting that James Yun (aka Jimmy Wang Yang/Jimmy Yang) has decided to move on because he feels that the position was not for him. Yang was brought in as a Producer for a tryout run in October.

Yang’s first national run was with World Championship Wrestling as part of The Jung Dragons. The group notably had excellent matches with Three Count towards the end of the promotion’s run before they were bought out by WWE.

Yang was then brought in by WWE during the invasion and repackaged as Akio and later as Jimmy Wang Yang, a Southern country cowboy. While he wasn’t featured as a big act in the company, he was always praised for his in-ring work and many would argue that he was one of the most underrated wrestlers in the mid 2000s.
