During the December 17 edition of NXT UK, it was announced that sensation Ben Carter had officially signed with WWE.
In a special video package to announce their latest recruit, the black and red brand had multiple NXT UK stars talk about Carter, his skills and what he’d done on the independent scene before NXT General Manager William Regal gave him a massive endorsement.
The video package was then turned towards Carter’s training in Black Label Pro – unsurprisingly his stint in AEW was not recognised – and a sit down interview with former WWE Champion, Seth Rollins, the man who helped to train the Brit.
Rollins talked about how Carter was a stand-out performer from the start who wanted to know and learn everything and how thrilled he was to see him sign for NXT UK.
Currently, it is unknown when Carter will make his NXT UK debut though with the brand airing a Christmas Eve special on December 24 which is likely to be a look back and then a potential New Year’s Eve special the week after which us always a ‘Best Of’ edition, it’s unlikely we’ll see the star before 2021.
Ben Carter had been rumoured to sign with WWE several months ago after successful appearances for AEW which brought him to main stream attention. However, after he contracted COVID-19, no official announcement was made regarding his future.
