Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has confirmed that Ben Carter has officially signed with World Wrestling Entertainment.
The news, which was confirmed in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, comes off of the back of AEW Superstar Miro letting the cat out of the bag during a recent live stream.
Streaming on Twitch, Miro answered a fan who praised how good the Brit was and inadvertently said:
“We lost Ben Carter. Ben Carter is lost, he’s gone to the dark side, so…I mean, good luck to Ben Carter, all the best to him. I was really impressed with his stuff.”
It is vital to note at this time that WWE has not made any official announcement on the signing of Ben Carter or anyone else.
Earlier this month Fightful reported that NXT UK had made a huge play for the talent following his impressive appearances on AEW Dynamite, so we may already have his final destination should Dave Meltzer be correct.
Carter, who tested positive for COVID-19 in September, made his career altering appearances for AEW on the September 22 edition of Dynamite when he contested a talked about match with Scorpio Sky.
He has also competed on AEW Dark, which included another highly rated bout with Ricky Starks.
