Shelton Benjamin Still Working Towards a WWE Return

When the WWE went ahead with their second brand split earlier this year, one of the surprise announcements was that former U.S. and Intercontinental champion Shelton Benjamin would be making a return. The WWE even aired a little vignette to promote his return.

Except it never happened.

Benjamin ended up needing shoulder surgery, so his WWE return was shelved indefinitely. However, the 41-year-old announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he is still planning to get back in the squared circle.

If our math is correct (it probably is), that means Benjamin wouldn’t be able to return until just after WrestleMania. He was originally announced as being part of the Smackdown Live brand, but who knows if those plans will stay the same by the time he’s healthy and ready to come back.
