Update On Shelton Benjamin's Post-WWE Plans
Latest on Shelton Benjamin's post-WWE plans
Months on from his WWE release, Shelton Benjamin is yet to make a decision about his future.
Speaking on the Kurt Angle Show, Benjamin revealed to his former Team Angle faction mate that he was still weighing up his options. Benjamin was released in September 2023 and has been a free agent since his non-compete clause expired in December.
"To be honest, I don't know. I'm still weighing options. I've had a knock on my door here and there. I have no commitments, nothing major to announce aside from a few indie dates and a lot of autograph sessions. I've been taking my time on deciding what I want to do next. I am at a point in my career where I want to have fun. If it's not worth it, I want to have fun and make money, if it's not worth it, I just don't want to do it," Benjamin said.
"I'm not trying to build a name, I have a name, but I want to be where I'm appreciated and featured and can have some fun. I've never had the superstar complex where, 'I have to do this.' No, January 10 marked 24 years in the business for me and I've been extremely fortunate with injuries and family life that I can still go out and tear it up with the best of them. I'm just not sure where that's going to be at this point. I'm taking temperatures all over the place."
Prior to his release, Benjamin had been with WWE since 2017 as part of his second run with the organisation. Benjamin first wrestled for the company between 2000 and 2010.
