Shelton Benjamin is arguably one of the most athletic superstars in the WWE today. His WWE career started along side Charlie Haas as a member of Team Angle under the influence their team leader Kurt Angle. Benjamin and Hass later broke away from Kurt Angle to become known as The Worlds Greatest Tag Team and won the WWE Tag Team Championship twice. In March 2004 Benjamin was drafted to RAW as part of the draft lottery and made a big impact by gained two victories over Triple H.
Benjamin would go on to enjoy large success on Raw, especially in the Intercontinental Championship division, a title which he went on to capture at Taboo Tuesday by defeated Chris Jericho after being chosen by public vote. Benjamin would have a long championship reign seeing off contenders such as Maven. He would also participate in the Gold Rush Tournament in which he would loose to Shawn Michaels following a spring board superkick, a move which impressed millions, also causing Shelton and Shawn's match to be voted match of the year. Benjamin would later lose the championship and go into a rut. His "Mamma" would later attempt to get him out off the rut in a comedy angle, providing Benjamin with a short lived feud with Eugene.
Shelton would go on to turn heel and feud with Rob Van Dam. Van Dam would later pick a returning Charlie Haas as a mystery opponenet for Benjamin. Shelton and Haas would go on to feud for a while before reforming their tag team, challenging the Hardy Boys unsuccessfully at ECW One Night Stand. The pair would spilt with Haas staying on RAW and Benjamin moving to ECW.
Now he is residing as a part of the ECW roster, still trying to push through the ranks to make it to the top. The future looks bright for him, and one thing we can be sure of is that there "ain't no stopping him now"!
Benjamin is a pioneer of the Money in The Bank Ladder Match at Wrestlemania and is famous for the numerous stunts he has innovated in the match. He is regarded by many as one of the best pure athletes in the business.
In addition to this, Shelton has also one the annual THQ Superstar Challenge the most times making him the undisputed WWE SmackDown! Video Game Champion of the WWE. He would later retire from the tournament stating that he felt it was unfair to keep beating the other superstars every year.

When the SmackDown! series started to add more interactivity with ladders, a regular move became possible where you could stack a ladder against a standing one to make a ramp. Your wrestler would run up this ramp and hit a hugh clothesline knocking both you and the adversary down to the floor, or in some cases, outside the ring. This move is based on an innovative way Shelton Benjamin used the ladder at WrestleMania during the first Money in the Bank.
