Benson’s journey began in October 2018 with the launch of WWE 2K19 and the Million Dollar Tower, a difficult gauntlet challenge designed to put players to the ultimate test. After toppling the tower and submitting a video describing how he would be the one to beat AJ Styles, Benson was selected to compete based on his talent in-game and charisma on the mic.
Benson’s next challenge took place earlier today at WrestleMania Axxess where, accompanied by WWE Superstar coach The Miz, he fought his way through a grueling semifinal bracket against global competition to prove he had what it took to face “The Phenomenal One” head-to-head.
“I’m a freakin’ millionaire! WWE 2K made this amazing for me. This is the best weekend of my life,” said Benson. “I thank AJ Styles, Xavier Woods, Corey Graves and everyone that was a part of this. Now my life has changed and my dream has come true.”
