One of the biggest names in the indie scene, who is also one of the hottest free agents in the market, Ben Carter, has All Elite Wrestling, IMPACT Wrestling, and even the WWE showing major interest in signing him to a contract. Carter has really impressed these three major pro wrestling companies over the past number of months.
Ben Carter has wrestled the likes of Ricky Starks, Lee Johnson, and even Scorpio Sky in All Elite Wrestling and even made an appearance on IMPACT Wrestling’s Xplosion when he took on one-half of the IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Champions Chris Sabin.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, WWE has made a huge move and a big step to try and sign Ben Carter to a contract with their NXT UK brand. The article also notes that Carter mentioned in the past that due to his residential status in the U.S., he worked his matches in AEW for free, but if he was to sign with NXT UK, he would have no such issues.
Sapp also mentioned that neither Carter nor WWE’s NXT UK brand have yet to agree on a deal and that AEW and IMPACT Wrestling is still showing major interest in Ben Carter.
