New Faction To Form On SmackDown?

As noted before, there's been talk that Shelton Benjamin will resume plans to return to WWE once his torn rotator cuff has healed.

One idea that's been floating around is for Benjamin to form a "shooters" stable along with Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger. The faction would be similar to what WCW had with the “Varsity Club” with Rick Steiner, Mike Rotunda, Steve Williams, Kevin Sullivan and Dan Spivey. Like the Varsity Club, Benjamin, Ziggler and Swagger all have amateur wrestling backgrounds.

Chad Gable was previously planned to lead a similar group in NXT, but plans were nixed by Vince McMahon. McMahon is said not to be a fan of those types of gimmicks and felt it would hurt all involved, according to The Wrestling Observer.
