Ben was born March 14, 1961 in Waynesville, NC to Flora (Jones) Wells and the late Wilburn Benjamin Wells, Sr..

Ben was a 1979 graduate of Enka High School where he wrestled for 4 years. Ben's legacy continued as he was a military veteran who served 10 years in the U.S. Air Force (1982-92). During his military career he served all over the world and was a part of several conflicts.

He worked for many years at the Asheville Regional Airport before relocating and becoming the General Manager of Signature Flight Suppport in Charleston, S.C.
