Shelton Benjamin

Shelton Benjamin announced in a series of tweets on Sunday morning that his planned return to WWE as part of the Smackdown Live brand will now be delayed.

Benjamin revealed that he will be undergoing surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, thanking WWE for helping him discover the injury in his preparation to make his return.

WWE announced on the July 26 episode of Smackdown Live that Benjamin would be returning to the company after an over six year absence from the company. Since leaving WWE, Benjamin remained active wrestling in Japan for New Japan and NOAH.

You can check out a few of his tweets below.


  1. Its a good job the WWE screen people as stringently as they do. I seem to remember MVP being diagnosed with a heart murmur he had no ides about, which would have easily cause him problems later in life.

  2. Hope he isn’t used as a temporary nostalgia act and gets the boot with all the other `guest` old faces. Like when the old ECW was reborn via WWE. None of the originals were left after a year or so.I am curious also to see if he is in his prime or a bit past it. I suspect maybe somewhere in between considering his age and where he’s competed.
