Is Shelton All Elite?

Could AEW be about to sign wrestling veteran, Shelton Benjamin.

A new report from Fightful Select (subscription required) has indicated that AEW and Benjamin have had recent talks, yet the report doesn’t detail if a contract has been signed.

It was previously reported that people within AEW were pushing the company to sign the former WWE star.

Back in January on the Kurt Angle Show, this is what Benjamin had to say regarding his pro wrestling future:

“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….”
“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.”
