A former WWE Star is rumored to make his return to WWE this Sunday at the Battleground pay-per-view. He is none other than “The Gold Standard”, Shelton Benjamin.
Last year, WWE announced on the Smackdown after the draft that Shelton would be returning to WWE and would be joining the Smackdown roster. Eventually, plans changed as Shelton got injured during his training for his in ring return which cost him several months of his career. Due to the injury, both sides agreed to finish the contract.
The former United States Champion was ready to return to the ring a few months ago, but he also clarified that he was no longer signed to WWE. WWE hinted a return by wishing Benjamin a happy birthday on his birthday which is unusual because WWE does not post about stars not signed with them. Although there is no angle where it seems Shelton may fit, but it is reported that he signed a deal with WWE and may be returning to the blue brand soon.
