Shelton Benjamin was one of the most gifted athletes in WWE during his original tenure with the company over a decade ago. He was released in 2010, but it is now being reported by PWInsider that WWE has decided to rehire “The Gold Standard.” While these reports have been circulating over the past few months, the belief is that he has officially been re-signed now. No word on when Shelton is expected to return or what he will be doing in WWE, but the report mentions that he should be appearing on television again soon. Shelton’s return was teased during Smackdown’s relaunch last year, but he never officially signed a contract and suffered a torn rotator cuff before he could come back.
Shelton Benjamin was initially called up to WWE’s main roster back in 2002, when he and Charlie Haas teamed up to form an alliance with Kurt Angle. Benjamin saw some success as part of a tag team, but he also made a name for himself during his solo career as he captured the United States Championship once, as well as the Intercontinental Championship three separate times. Benjamin had always been looked at as underrated by most fans at the time, and he managed to impress audiences with his great athleticism. Now at 42-years-old, he still appears to be in great shape and can pull off impressive maneuvers in the ring. He should be ready to make his big WWE return very soon.
The SummerSlam kickoff show currently includes the New Day defending the Smackdown Tag Team Championships against The Usos, as well as a rematch between Akira Tozawa and Neville for the Cruiserweight Championship. Another match has officially been added to the pre-show, that being a six-man tag team match. WWE announced today that Matt and Jeff Hardy are going to be teaming up with Jason Jordan to take on The Miz, Curtis Axel, and Bo Dallas before SummerSlam officially starts. It is believed that The Hardy Boyz were scheduled to face The Revival, but those plans were changed when Scott Dawson suffered a bicep injury.
