Some casting Web sites have posted a new WWE casting call asking for actresses to play a new role:

"SHELTON BENJAMIN'S MAMA / Co-Star / Female / African Am / 50-60 Shelton Benjamin's Mama - 50's, Black, heavy set, good personality, willing to travel."

According to PWInsider.com, the casting call says that the character will be required to travel all over the country and world for RAW shows, pay is TBD, and the role should last three to six months.

------

Well, this makes sense. After all, the first Benjamin/Michaels match was so boring, it needed something like this in the mix.....

Unfortunately Sapphire's no longer around, this sounds perfect for her. If Shelton starts using Johnny B. Badd sayings, we can virtually trace the whole thing back to Dusty.
And, worst comes to worst, they can always just throw a dress on Mark Henry.

Another board I'm on has pimped a "spoiled athlete" gimmick for Shelton (think Terrell Owens), complete w/ a smarmy agent to do his talking.

That'd be a hell of a lot better than "mama's boy".

Sounds to me like they're going to turn in him McNabb if they're bringing in his "Mama"...

Oh, relax. Maybe it'll just be a variation of the Al Wilson storyline.

Wait, put down the knife...

Actually, now that I think about, they're not really using Mark Henry right now. He knows a little about transvestites, as well. Perfect fit.

Strange that they're having a casting call for someone to play Shelton Benjamin's mama, when they used to have The Cat under employment and you'd think finding somebody to call before he whoops somebody would be an obvious choice.

Between this and him jobbing to Trevor Murdoch, I'll take Shelty's mama any day of the week. As long she doesn't end up winning the tag titles I think it'll be just about bearable.

Given the WWE's track record with negative racial stereotyping, I'm worried that this character will be more of Shalton's "Mammy" than Shelton's "Mama".

Nobody complains about something they haven't even seen yet like the Internet.

Shelton's Mama could be funny. We'll see when she shows on RAW. It sounds like a bad idea on the outset but so did Eugene last year and he turned out okay for a while. (Not so much anymore.)

Anyway, the news of Mama Benjamin inspired us to whip up a little something on Famous Wrestling Parents (not named McMahon) at OUR so-called SPORT.

So now all of his programs are going to start with someone telling him 'yo Momma' jokes, or worse. Maybe Val Venis can make a porno with her.

I like that idea a helluva lot better. Maybe have him get over on Shawn Michaels, and bring an agent in as he sees himself in this whole new light as the best wrestler on Raw. I mean, it'd be a whole lot easier to find a loudmouth agent type as well.

Eh. He needs a manager to do his talking for him anyway. This may work.

Relax, she's probably just coming in to make sure Shelton and the other boys in the locker room are eating their chunky soup.

One of two options here perhaps;

1) The "agent" comes in and makes a STABLE, perhaps? Specificlly Shelton, throw in a tag team, and a diva.

2) Hey, the Coach could fill the role, could he not?


Either way, with the lack of direction for Shelton Benjamen the last while, at leats now they're giving him attention (if these reports/job postings are even true).

Why not have Bischoff as his agent? There's been talking of reuniting Rosey with the recently re-signed Jamal to reform 3 Minute Warning with Bischoff in a managerial role. He'd be perfect.
