Former WWE Superstar and multiple time WWE Tag Team Champion Charlie Haas sat down for a recent interview with It’s My Wrestling Podcast where he dicussed his close friendship with Shelton Benjamin. Haas would go on to comment on how WWE have used Benjamin recently and what he would like to see for his former tag partner.
Charlie commented the following:
He’s one of my best friends, we talk all the time, he’s the godfather to my daughter and you know, he’s getting paid. So, you know, he’s easy. He survived the cuts. I think in the future Shelton will probably be an instructor or coach, especially with them signing all the amateur wrestlers like Gable Steveson, Steiners son (Bronn Breaker), and there’s a couple others that they’ve signed who they may use shortly you know. So when they decide it’s time for him to retire he’ll coach, if he wants to. I’m happy for Shelton for sure.
Charlie also commented on The Hurt Business and what he wold like to see for Shelton in the future:
I wish they would have ran with The Hurt Business and kept it going instead of breaking it up and then bringing it back. They had a lot of momentum. They really helped the company during the pandemic, so I was really happy to see him and Cedric back on TV. I just want the best for him because he deserves it. I would like to see him have a singles run. I’d love to see him get the World Championship, it would be an extra feather in his cap and would definitely guide him towards the WWE Hall of Fame.
