During the most recent edition of NXT UK a video was played spotlighting Ben Carter who will be a part of the brand going forward. A trainee of Seth Rollins’ Black and Brave school, Carter was in demand earlier this year after some appearances for All Elite Wrestling. Recent reports indicated that he had signed for the WWE but we now know it is official
I came to the states 4 and a half years ago as a kid with a dream.
I had no idea how I was gonna do it… but I knew exactly what I wanted.
That dream, it just came true.

Despite having only two years of pro wrestling experience under his belt, Carter was one of the more talented prospects on the indie wrestling scene. No doubt in part due to working with one of WWE’s top stars. But in 2020 Carter established himself as a star, largely in part due to his work with Game Changer Wrestling.
It was in September though, that Carter got his big break when he landed a spot on AEW DARK taking on Ricky Starks in a near eight-minute match that truly showcased his talent to a larger audience. Carter was put over huge by AEW commentators and management, and returned to the company for a second appearance, winning his match against Lee Johnson. Carter returned for a third and final AEW appearance, only this time on Tuesday Night Dynamite, where he took on Scorpio Sky in a fantastic 15-minute bout..
Carter also made an appearance for IMPACT Wrestling on their Xplosion show. Meaning he is one of the few people to appear on IMPACT Wrestling, AEW, and WWE content this calendar year. Now, Ben Carter is on his way to NXT UK to begin his climb to the top of the WWE.
