Benoit was a guest on a recent episode of the Pro and Bro Wrestling Podcast with Fred Rosser. When asked by Rosser (formerly WWE Superstar Darren Young) if he had been training, Benoit replied that he’s just been “messing around in the ring right now with a couple of guys from AEW.”

Although he did not provide details on who he has been training with, Benoit did mention he has a close relationship with AEW Champion Chris Jericho. He was also in attendance for both Double or Nothing and All Out. Despite his claims that he is only messing around, Benoit has had gear made so he is ready for whenever he might debut. 

When asked where he might like to wrestle, Benoit didn’t hesitate, responding:

“I want to go to AEW one hundred percent. I love AEW. I love what they do for the boys. Take care of them.”

This interview with Fred Rosser was advertised as David Benoit’s first-ever podcast interview.

Benoit has frequently attended WWE shows in the past, uploading photos of himself at various events. He mentioned that he is no longer allowed backstage at WWE events but didn’t explain why.
