Reports are swirling that independent wrestler Ben Carter, who came to people’s attention due to appearances in AEW, has signed with WWE.
Carter had reportedly been offered contracts by both AEW and WWE who wanted Carter, who is British, on NXT UK.
Now, former WWE talent and current AEW star Miro has supposedly spilled the beans on where Carter is going, on his Twitch Stream.
“Ben Carter is lost. He’s gone to the dark side,” Miro is alleged to have said. Many people are taking “dark side” to mean WWE.
Miro’s claims are being backed by the most recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter which states that Carter has indeed been signed with WWE.
As for Carter himself, or WWE, they have been silent on the matter. Though Carter did recently Tweet a clip of an interview he gave, where he talked about how he wanted to be a wrestler for WWE.
Though Carter is mostly known for his appearances on AEW, including a great match with Scorpio Sky on Dynamite, he is not totally without “ties” to WWE.
Carter has trained at the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy which is run by Marek Brave and WWE Superstar Seth Rollins. He has been complimentary of Rollins, “hands-on approach” and actually taking time to be involved in the training.
