Shelton Benjamin was announced to return to the WWE on SmackDown a couple of weeks ago, but Benjamin announced this past weekend his return would be delayed due to a torn rotator cuff.
According to a report by Daily Wrestling News, the company had big plans for Shelton Benjamin. He was set to receive a high mid-card push on SmackDown. Triple H and Vince McMahon have always been high on Benjamin and were genuinely excited about his return to the company.
Other plans included a possible reunion with Charlie Haas to reform The World's Greatest Tag Team. With the SmackDown brand devoid of top teams, despite plans to introduce new tag titles, this would have been a real shot in the arm. Imagine a feud between The World's Greatest Tag Team with American Alpha!
