One of the breakout stars of 2020 was Ben Carter. After standout performances for AEW, Carter signed with NXT UK where he now performs. Before all that, he was trained by SmackDown star Seth Rollins at Black and Brave Wrestling Academy.
Carter is the first of Rollins’ students to be signed by WWE. Now, Seth Rollins discussed how proud he is of Carter on the most recent edition of WWE’s The Bump. Here is the quote, courtesy of Fightful:
“It’s great, man. I’m so proud of him and how quickly it happened for him as far as getting signed and coming onto the scene in NXT UK and just making a huge impact right out of the gate. Is extremely impressive, I had to spend two years in WWE developmental before I even had a chance to do something like that and so it’s really impressive to see. I’m so proud of him and it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
We’ve been running the school now for 7 years or so, we got tons of graduates who are just right there on the coast and you’re going to see a lot of names in the independent scene as well, when the independent scene starts back up again hopefully in the summer but, man I’ve got a lot of talented young men and women down here. It’s a really good feeling to watch them succeed.
Talking to Ben Carter when he was negotiating with WWE what’s so funny to me because it reminded me of when I was doing it a decade ago and just to see if it would dream and to know that you played a small part in that is a really cool thing.”
Ben Carter recently challenged Jordan Devlin for NXT UK’s Cruiserweight Championship although he was unsuccessful.
