The video opened with Mia Yim, the closest friend of Shelton Benjamin, telling the world that Shelton “is iconic.” Other WWE stars such as Tamina, Kofi Kingston, and Cedric Alexander also acknowledged the feats that he has attained in the ring. Cedric and Shelton shared many moments in the ring as tag team partners when they held the championship, and Cedric seemed more than happy to wish for many more milestones to come. 

Shelton Benjamin is more than just an opponent for Kofi Kingston. He was an inspiration to Kofi as he was breaking into the world of professional wrestling. He considered it beneficial to have Shelton on the other side of the ring since it brought out his best. 

WWE Hall of Famer Holly Molly, WWE Producer Shawn Daivari, and WWE fame Tamina all stated that Shelton is currently in excellent physical condition. His physique and agility don’t seem to show that the guy has spent 20 long years in the same ring. While many people get tired of working in the same place after just two years, Shelton has been with the company for 20 years!
