“Lately, I haven’t been doing much as far as on-air with the WWE. For me, it’s just frustrating. So, when you contacted me to do this interview, my first thought was I don’t even know what to talk about because right now, I’m not really doing anything that’s fulfilling to me. I’m here every week, I’m ready to go. For me, it’s like when I watch shows like this, Chasing Glory, people are chasing something. Right now, I don’t even feel like I’m on the hunt. Not that I don’t want to be. That just frustrates me on a personal level.”
Benjamin went on to say that “Yes, I’ve re-signed another multi-year deal with the WWE, so I’ll be here for a little while.”
Benjamin returned to the company during the Brand Extension in 2016, after spending a majority of the aughts in WWE.
