Shelton Benjamin Won’t Be Returning To WWE After All

Some of you might have wondered why Shelton Benjamin didn’t appear on Smackdown this week, or even get mentioned, after WWE promoted his return on the first live episode after the Draft. Well, there’s some unfortunate news about that, which will see Benjamin not making his return to the company where he made his name, at least just yet.

Apparently, Benjamin has suffered a serious rotator cuff injury and will be unable to wrestle for several months. Hopefully this doesn’t close the door on his WWE return, only move it down the road a while, but for the moment, we won’t be seeing the former Gold Standard plying his trade in a WWE ring in the near future.
