Shelton Benjamin has faced adversity head on his whole life. Growing up fast and hard in a tough neighborhood, Shelton could’ve joined gangs and faced great pressure to do the wrong thing more times than he’d like to remember. However, “Mr. Benjamin” defied the odds and went on to the University of Minnesota to become an outstanding amateur wrestler before finally doing the impossible – becoming a WWE Superstar, first on Smackdown and most recently on RAW.
Maybe it was Benjamin’s ability to deal with the pressures of the street that has made him the prime time high stakes pressure player he has evolved into as a RAW Superstar. Either way, there’s no denying Benjamin’s uncanny athletic skills and balance in pulling off some of the most breathtaking high risk maneuvers out there.
