They call him The Prodigy and Independent Wrestler Benjamin Carter lives up to every definition of the word. Carter was born in Jersey, but not the one you’re probably thinking of (it’s actually a small island of British decent). His journey to America began with him arriving here on a soccer scholarship and immediately decided to sharpen his ring skills by training at The Black & The Brave Wrestling Academy. While in Iowa he was mentored by WWE Superstar Seth Rollins and got his US start at his SCWPro promotion which is a great pipeline from his Black & Brave Academy. 2019 was the year he first began to put his name on the map by competing for Souther Underground Pro (SUP), ACTION Wrestling in Georgia, IAW, and BLP among other places.
March 2020 wasn’t exactly a great month for the world, but right before the shutdown Ben Carter made his long awaited debut for Game Changer Wrestling (GCW), as an entrant in the return of a previous event The Acid Cup. A first round matchup saw him going one on one with the breakout star and IMO, Independent Wrestling Rising Star of the Year In 2019, and fellow high flyer “All Heart” Blake Christian. He would lose the match but a star was born and just like that the world shut down and independent wrestling went from a thriving red hot industry to one of uncertainty.
During quarantine Carter would work on numerous new moves posting the results to social media furthering everyone’s interest in this new guy that just hung with Blake Christian in his debut for Game Changer.
Carter has came back post shutdown and been booked on just about every single big show wrestling at an extremely high level like some sort of Independent Wrestling version of Bubble-Damian Lillard in the NBA restart. Competing in and stealing the show in 2 separate 6-Way Scramble Matches in addition to 2 unbelievable singles contests vs both Tony Deppen & Jordan Oliver for GCW. In Warrior Wrestling he teamed with Indie Wrestling top talents Alex Zayne & former opponent Blake Christian against Impact Wrestling’s The Rascalz and just last week in a singles match against AEW’s Brian Cage. Speaking of All Elite Wrestling Benjamin Carter’s stock has been so hot that they brought him in for a match on AEW Dark against Ricky Starks. Combo all that with singles matches against Tre Lamar & Anthony Henry and you’d have to say he’s the front runner for 2020 2nd Half Indie Wrestling MVP.
