Ben Carter makes NXT UK television debut

Ben Carter, NXT UK’s newest signee, made his long-awaited debut last night on NXT UK TV.

Carter was being scouted by AEW, and actually wrestled two matches on Dark, before he was offered a deal with WWE. He eventually agreed to WWE’s deal and joined the NXT UK roster since he’s a Brit and does not have a working visa for the United States.

He made his debut by being a guest on Noam Dar’s Supernova Sessions and was then confronted by NXT Cruiserweight champion Jordan Devlin. The confrontation ended with the two agreeing to a match later in the broadcast for the title and the newcomer impressed viewers. However, his effort was not enough as Devlin retained the title after a hard-fought match.

Carter was trained by Seth Rollins and Marek Brave at the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy and is highly-regarded among his peers.

“On this day last year I was flying back to college in the US for my final semester, thinking how am I gonna get people to notice that I exist. Today, I make my @WWE debut… You’re not gonna want to miss this,” he wrote on Twitter yesterday before the NXT UK episode started.
