Career

Tex Benedict began his wrestling career aged 15, with NWA:UK Hammerlock, in Kent making his debut against Sebastien P. Sterling. Tex learned under the tuition of former FWA champion Justin Richards.

Tex had worked regularly since 1997, in which time he has appeared for many promotions in the UK and in the United States of America. Tex has worked for All Star Wrestling, the FWA, British Championship Wrestling based in Scotland, Revolution British Wrestling, Combat Sports Federation and LDN, as well as many other now defunct promotions. Tex has twice toured the United States of America where he wrestled for the National Wrestling League based in Maryland and for Chikara.

Whilst competing for British Championship Wrestling, Tex Benedict gained his first ever championship, by defeating "Thee" Drew Galloway to lift the vacant Cruiserweight title. Tex held this title for a record 2 years 109 days, before losing the title to Liam Thompson following interference from Lionheart. Tex Benedict was involved in the most memorable of storylines in British Championship Wrestling history, when he used a personal story that was on the front page of The Daily Record to launch a scathed attacked on Lionheart, who would wind up getting his own back in the harshest of ways by costing Tex Benedict his first title in professional wrestling.

In June 2006, Tex Benedict captured the British Welterweight Championship from Kid Regis in Walthamstow, London on an LDN show. Tex Benedict lost the British welterweight title against Travis on 20th September 2008 at the Victoria Halls in Hanley, Stoke. In September 2006, Tex Benedict won the LDN British Championship in Enfield London. He held this title until January 2007, when Notorious Jon Ritchie defeated him.
