Shelton Benjamin Reveals Who He Would Choose To Induct Him Into The WWE Hall Of Fame
Shelton Benjamin would like a special name to induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame
Shelton Benjamin’s WWE career may have cooled off significantly over the last couple of years, especially since the Hurt Business came to an end, but he has no doubt carved out a Hall of Fame worthy career. With reigns as Tag Team Champion, Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, and being a highlight reel in the early days of the Money in the Bank ladder match, he has always been someone who has proven his worth.
Benjamin was recently asked about a future Hall of Fame induction on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, and pondered on who would induct him if given the choice.
"I've thought about it. I've sat and thought about it a couple of times, me and a couple of the guys when that originally came up, me and some other guys kind of brainstormed. Like, on the list, Kurt, sure. Brock... I don't know, Brock might F-5 me; you can't trust him with a handshake. Gerald Brisco... like I said, I go deep with it. Even MVP.
"People that are close to me, that have been with me for forever — those types of guys, I really would consider for that. I will say, if I was to make a decision today, it would probably be Kurt. I would love for it to be Kurt. He paved the way for guys like myself, Brock, Gable, and... yeah. And again, he used his name to introduce me to the world. It would be, for me — it would be an honor if it were him."
Benjamin’s first steps on the WWE main roster came alongside Charlie Haas as part of “Team Angle”, breaking into the company during the Ruthless Aggression Era.
