You’ll want to get to know him. AEW has shaken up the wrestling world in a good way. After decades of WWE dominating the industry, it is a major change to see someone new making their way onto the big stage. There is another top level company now and that means a new place for a bunch of wrestlers to showcase themselves. That is the case with one name in particular and a lot of people have noticed.
Back in September, a British wrestler named Ben Carter wrestled a handful of matches for AEW, with a pair on Dark and one on Late Night Dynamite. Carter stole the show more than once and had a heck of a match against Scorpio Sky which got a lot of time. Those are the kinds of performances that are going to get a lot of attention and now that is the case from around the wrestling world.
According to Fightful Select, multiple companies are interested in signing Carter. This includes WWE, who is interested in signing Carter to be part of NXT. WWE has been in contact with Carter, though it is not known if Carter is interested or how far the talks went. Carter is not under contract to AEW and only appeared as an independent wrestler, though he has won a match on Dark over Lee Johnson.
Carter has looked great so far. Check out what he has done in AEW:
Opinion: I’m not surprised by this in the slightest as Carter is quite the star in the making. He got people’s attention in a hurry and that is the kind of thing that you cannot plan. Carter is someone who could be a big star for a long time to come and hopefully he gets to pick from a lot of great offers. Someone is going to get a gem when they sign him up and that’s awesome for everyone involved.
