Shelton Benjamin discloses interesting fact about his WWE IC title win
Shelton Benjamin recently recalled how he only learned about his first WWE Intercontinental Championship victory when Chris Jericho did not kick out during their match.
In 2004, WWE fans voted online to choose certain opponents and stipulations for the matches at the inaugural Taboo Tuesday pay-per-view. WWE’s decision-makers expected Batista to be selected as Jericho’s opponent, but Benjamin won the 15-person poll with 37.48 percent of the vote.
Speaking on WWE Network show Ruthless Aggression, Benjamin said he hardly knew anything on the day of the show:
“Going into that match, I knew nothing, absolutely nothing. I didn’t know if I was wrestling because they didn’t know if I was wrestling. Jericho didn’t know if I was wrestling. We went out and had that match on the fly. I didn’t know I was winning until Jericho didn’t kick out,” Benjamin said.
Kayla Braxton and Paul Heyman’s on-screen chemistry has been a hit with the WWE Universe
Kayla Braxton and Paul Heyman have known each other for a while now. Heyman used to pick on Braxton regularly back when the two were mainstays on WWE Talking Smack.
A while ago, Heyman made a bold claim and stated that Braxton has a crush on him:
“I don’t…I like Kayla. I think Kayla has great taste in men because she has such a crush on me. I don’t dislike Kayla at all. I think Kayla’s a remarkably talented person, but she’s a stalker, and she’s stalking me, and she’s bothering me. And she’s nagging me. And she pokes, pokes, pokes, pokes, pokes, pokes, every time, with her freaking questions, and her interrogatories. It’s like being in a deposition.” (H/T WrestlingInc)
