Bruce Prichard Comments on Shelton Benjamin Never Becoming a WWE Main Eventer, More


During the latest edition of his “Something to Wrestle” podcast, Bruce Prichard commented on why Shelton Benjamin has never become a main eventer in WWE, not fulfilling his potential in WWE, and more. You can check out some highlights and audio from the podcast below:

On Benjamin being one of WWE’s most gifted athletes: “Absolutely. Shelton came in, was part of that Brock [Lesnar] class with John Cena and Batista and a lot of studs, so to speak. JR would say, ‘Goddamn! Blue chipper class! Sassafras!’ And Shelton, first of all, he could do anything — to this day, he can do just about anything. Incredibly talented performer. Yeah, maybe missing a little bit of that it factor, but a great performer and being given the opportunity and being able to work with someone like a Jericho makes him shine all that much more.”

On Shelton Benjamin’s stock in WWE at this time: “Shelton’s stock was high, and I think that there were a lot of people that felt Shelton could’ve been one of the guys. Unfortunately, for whatever reason it is, [we] would hit a wall with Shelton sometimes and couldn’t get to that next level.”

On Shelton Benjamin never fulfilling his potential: “Oof. I don’t think that he ever fulfilled his potential. I think he could’ve been a much bigger star. I really and truly do. And I think that — I dunno. I don’t think that the audience would accept him at this point beyond where we are.”
