Serious Injury Puts Returning WWE Star Out Of Action

Early Sunday morning on Twitter, Shelton Benjamin informed the world of his torn rotator cuff injury, which will keep him from returning to WWE in the near future.

Benjamin 41, who was last in WWE under the “gold standard” moniker in 2010, has been a fixture in Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and Pro Wrestling Noah ever since his departure. He was recently hyped by WWE to be a new addition for the SmackDown brand, which could definitely use his athleticism, name value, and wrestling ability to bolster its mid-card ranks.

This news comes at an awful time for not only Benjamin, who is likely to miss an extended amount of time, but also WWE who had a plethora of options available with a talent such as Shelton. He had been performing with the injury, which he had no clue of. Benjamin revealed WWE discovered the lingering problem during his physical screening process, and was thankful in his tweets to the company.

Here at TheSportster, we wish Shelton the best possible recovery, as he faces surgery and the rehabilitation process, and hope to see him back in WWE when he’s able to return. His tweets on the matter are listed below.
