An up and coming star that has appeared on a few AEW shows appears to be on his way to WWE.
During a Twitch stream on Friday AEW’s Miro strongly implied that Carter was on his way to WWE.
Miro said, “We lost Ben Carter. Ben Carter is lost. He’s gone to the dark side. Good luck to Ben Carter. All the best to him, I was really impressed with his stuff.”
Carter worked a couple of shows on AEW Dark and Late Night Dynamite and his work impressed people in the company and executives in other wrestling companies.
Carter worked for free because of a visa issue that would have made it illegal for AEW to pay him. His matches on Dynamite got WWE’s attention and based on tweets from Miro and Carter, it looks like he may have signed with them.
It’s not clear if the visa issue has been resolved but if it has not been addressed then it’s more likely that he will work on the NXT UK brand.
