- Former WWE star Shelton Benjamin tells AlwaysAList.com that wrestling legend The Barbarian is falsely promoting a wrestling tour of Nigeria this December. Barbarian’s flyer is advertising Benjamin, MVP, Carlito, John Morrison, Matt Hardy, Val Venis, Bobby Lashley, Finlay, Chavo Guerrero and others for the tour. Benjamin says none of the former WWE stars are involved with the tour.
Benjamin previously blasted The Barbarian for shady business practices after a 2011 tour in Africa where he stiffed them on pay. Benjamin is calling Barbarian a liar, a thief and is warning people about doing business with him.
MVP, Hardy and Val Venis have all backed up Shelton’s claims about the upcoming tour. MVP called The Barbarian a scumbag on his Twitter.
