Below are a couple of top AEW & WWE news stories of the day.

• Shelton Benjamin finds himself in the spotlight as a free agent, with All Elite Wrestling expressing interest in his services. According to sources from Fightful Select, discussions between Benjamin and AEW have recently commenced, exploring the potential for his appearances with the company.

While details regarding the nature of Benjamin’s involvement, whether it be a contractual agreement or occasional appearances, remain undisclosed, the ongoing dialogue between the parties indicates a mutual interest. These talks have been ongoing for approximately a month, shedding light on AEW’s proactive approach to bolstering its roster.

Interestingly, whispers of Benjamin’s potential move to AEW surfaced last year amid rumors of his impending WWE contract expiration. Although those rumors proved to be unfounded at the time, Benjamin’s unexpected release from WWE in the autumn of 2023 reignited talks of a potential union with AEW.

Benjamin’s journey in professional wrestling spans a significant tenure with WWE, predating the emergence of AEW. However, his departure from WWE presents an opportunity for him to explore new avenues, including potential collaboration with AEW, a promotion where he has yet to showcase his skills despite his rich history in Ring of Honor.

During an interview with Fightful, Otis revealed how long he hid under the ring on that night:

“Probably about 5 entrances. It’s funny because they just know it’s you in a black cape. You can’t hide me.

That was quite interesting. I had never been under the ring before. I remember going like, ‘it sounds like it’s going to break’. Our ring guy Nick goes, ‘imagine when I’m down here and you’re up there buddy. Then it’s going to really break’.”
