Ben – “The Elitest Figure Head” – Writer and Youtube Host

For him it's all about the A-E-dub, and every aspect of it! From watching every piece of content, they put out there, to figures, cards and the collecting of Autographs! Before AEW he was a long-time fan of WWE, a child raised during the attitude era, what wasn't there to love? But time's changed, a bit too much for him. He suffered all through the "Guest Host era", then onto the time Edge beat up a laptop on live TV and he even faced the "Once in a Lifetime" match between The Rock and John Cena... twice... so much for once in a lifetime huh? Eventually he fell out of love with it for one reason or another. And in 2014 he stopped watching entirely. WrestleMania XXX was the last show he watched... Fast forward 5 year's and Mr. Tony Khan not only re-ignited his love for professional wrestling, that MFer went and poured gasoline all over it! He was hooked since the first DoN, and, well... he’s in deeper than ever. Here's to many more year's of the Black and Gold brand (no, not NXT, their all colourful now, right?) He has been to multiple WWE tapings in his time and soon will be going to AE…DUB!
