Shelton Benjamin, Edge and Christian Talk Chad Gable On Recent Edition of E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness

This week’s edition of E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness featured an interview with Shelton Benjamin, where he talked about several subjects, including his experiences through the independent scene and Japan after being released by the WWE, his journey back to the WWE as well as working with his current tag team partner, Chad Gable and much more. Here is what the trio had to say:

Edge: …How does it feel to be teaming with Gable?

Benjamin: You know, I’m actually pretty excited about it, because I wasn’t sure what we were gonna do as far as my return goes. And [on social media] for the past few years, I would always get how Jordan and Gable reminded people of me and Charlie, so of course, I’m like ‘Yeah, but they’re not me & Charlie all right’ *Laughs* It’s funny, a week or two weeks before, I actually came back I met them for the first time. We were doing an appearance at the Dan Gable Wrestling Museum in Iowa and that was the first time that I had actually met them and one of the first things that I had said to them were ‘Hey, are you sick of hearing about us as much as we’re sick of hearing about you?’. But again, had no idea I’d be teaming with him. You know, it’s actually a really good way to bring me back in, I think. It’ll be fun to get to know him and learn to play off of him and figure out our strengths and weaknesses. We’re two very different style wrestlers for different eras. But I’m actually excited, I’m just as excited as everyone else to see what we can do.

Christian: …You were a part of a lot of big moments, in the history of the company, a lot of of stand out moments that will be replayed for years and years and you can help a guy like him. Sometimes in a tag setting, it makes it easier to play off of somebody, to have that kind of camaraderie. You know if he’s watching you doing certain things in the ring, asking you why you’re doing those and then helping him feel more comfortable in things he’s doing because he has a ton of talent, he’s gonna be really good and even that singles match a few weeks ago with AJ Styles was of the charts a good match and I think he’s got a bright future as well, but I think you’re right, it’s a good spot to come back in, not to mention the fact that the tag team division right now is hotter than it’s been in years, so that’s pretty cool too.
