Just thought I’d clear something up real quick...— Ben Carter (@bencarterbxb) January 22, 2021
I had an offer from WWE ------------ I appeared anywhere else, not after.
Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
AEW talents such as Will Hobbs and Eddie Kingston have stated WWE reached out to them after they appeared on AEW television. Both men declined WWE's offer and signed with AEW.
