Sit back, relax, and enjoy today's Countdown
superstar, Shelton Benjamin!
A former wrestler and track star at the University of Minnesota, where he was a teammate and coach of former WWE Superstar
Brock Lesnar, Shelton Benjamin brings impeccable credentials to WWE.
In his early WWE days, Benjamin was tutored by former Olympic Champion Kurt Angle. As part of the heralded Team Angle,
Benjamin joined Charlie Haas and the duo became two-time WWE Tag Team Champions, defeating Eddie and Chavo Guerrero for their
first championship in early 2003.
Benjamin figures to be a dominant force on RAW, as he has already garnered huge wins over the likes of Triple H and
Ric Flair. Many feel his early RAW success has come as a result of his unique style. Benjamin not only possesses the in-ring
skills to compete with the best, but his background as an All-American in track gives him a speed advantage better than most
in WWE. He's capable of catching anybody with his speed and then keeping that opponent down with his skill. This combination
has already caught the attention of everybody on RAW.
