Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin combined for four world tag team championships together. They were two-time WWE Tag Team Champions and held the ROH World Tag Team titles twice. If anybody knows Shelton, it’s Charlie Haas.

Charlie recently spoke to the It’s My Wrestling Podcast about his relationship with Benjamin. He said he can see him staying with the company after his in-ring run ends. Haas thinks Shelton would be a great coach.

“He’s one of my best friends, we talk all the time, he’s the godfather to my daughter and you know, he’s getting paid. So, you know, he’s easy. He survived the cuts. I think in the future he’ll probably be an instructor or coach, especially with them signing all the amateur wrestlers like Gable Steveson, Steiner’s son, and there’s a couple others that they’ve signed who they may use shortly.

So when they decide it’s time for him to retire he’ll coach, if he wants to. I’m happy for sure. I wish they would have ran with the Hurt Business and kept it going instead of breaking it up and then bringing it back. They had a lot of momentum. They really helped the company during the pandemic, so I was really happy to see him and Cedric back on TV. I just want the best for him because he deserves it.


I would like to see him have a singles run. I’d love to see him get the World Championship, it would definitely be an extra feather in his cap and would definitely guide him towards the Hall of Fame.”

Shelton Benjamin went on to a degree of singles success in WWE after his team with Haas was broken up. He won several individual championships with the company. He’s held the United States and Intercontinental championships in the past.
