WWE had shown interest in Benjamin Carter for a while now. The plan was for him to be signed to the NXT UK brand.
Carter was noticed by fans after his performances in AEW Dark. AEW has been interested in signing him as well and he also appeared for Impact Wrestling. During a recent Twitch stream, Miro said that Carter “joined the dark side” and then wished him good luck. It can be assumed Miro referred to WWE as ”the dark side”
