Shelton Benjamin No Longer Returning To WWE

Well, it looks like Shelton Benjamin won’t be returning to WWE after all.

Although it was officially announced during the first post-draft, “new era” episode of SmackDown Live that the former WWE Superstar would be returning to WWE to work as part of the SmackDown Live brand, Shelton Benjamin himself is singing a different tune on social media.

Benjamin took to his official Twitter page this weekend, where he noted that due to a “serious shoulder injury,” he will not be returning to WWE at this time.

“I am both disappointed & sadden to announce that due to a serious injury to my shoulder I will not be returning to @WWE at this time. For now I will have to put pro-wrestling to the side as I prepare to undergo surgery to repair my torn rotator. This comes as a shock to me as i am no stranger to performing while in pain yet I had no idea of the severity of my condition. Thank you @WWE for helping me discover this situation & for giving me an opportunity to return. I will be back. For now I must refocus my energy on repairing my body and mind.”
