He’s earned it. There is a constant stream of new stars coming into WWE but there is no way of knowing who might be the next breakout star.

WWE has released a video celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Shelton’s Benjamin’s debut with the company. The video includes several wrestlers talking about Benjamin’s career and how well he has done over his time with the company.

Opinion: This is the kind of video that WWE does very well, as they have the video library and history to make it work so well. Benjamin has been around WWE for what feels like the better part of ever, even with a seven year gap in the middle. He is still one of the best athletes WWE has ever seen and I could have gone with seeing him get a much stronger push than he had over the years.
