WATCH: Shelton Benjamin Says He Is Frustrated With WWE, But Has Signed New Contract (Video)

During his recent appearance on Lilian Garcia’s “Chasing Glory” podcast, WWE veteran Shelton Benjamin dropped a newsworthy bombshell.

Benjamin revealed during the interview that he has signed a new contract with WWE recently, despite his current frustration with the way he is being used by the company.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview that deals with this subject.

On rumors of signing a new contract with WWE: “Yes, I just re-signed another multi-year deal with the WWE. So, I’ll be here for a little while.”

On being frustrated with lack of TV time and not being sure what to say when getting invite to appear on Lilian Garcia’s podcast: “I was reluctant because I always like to put my best foot forward. I like to be in the mix. I like to be producing. I like to inspire people. 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.”
