Jimmy Yang's tryout as a WWE producer is reportedly over, according to PWInsider.

They reported Monday that Yang (James Yun) decided the position wasn't for him and he moved on instead. In late-October, Dave Meltzer reported in that week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Yang had started with the company in the new role.

Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp reported that WWE was the one who 'opted to not continue the tryout in that role several weeks ago."

He has operated several other businesses outside pro wrestling including a party bus company.

The 40-year-old had two previous runs with WWE as an in-ring performer, the most recent of which ended in May 2010. He was a WCW Power Plant graduate and worked for that company, TNA, MLW, All-Japan, Ring of Honor and other indies during his tenure. After retiring in 2013, he returned to action in 2021 alongside his daughter, Jazzy, who is now a pro wrestler.

WWE's current producer crop includes Chris Park, Shane Helms, Molly Holly, Jason Jordan, Petey Williams, TJ Wilson and Kenn Doane.
