Shelton Benjamin has signed a deal to return to WWE. PWInsider reports that the former Intercontinental Champion has signed on to make his return to the company for the first time since 2010.
Benjamin was originally planned to return last summer following the brand split. The company ran promos hyping his return but the pre-signing medical tests revealed a torn rotator cuff. Benjamin underwent surgery to repair the issue and was medically cleared to return in March.
Benjamin was part of the World’s Greatest Tag Team with Charlie Haas from 2002 through 2004 before splitting up, winning the WWE Tag Team Championships during that time. Benjamin went to Raw and got a singles push before the team reunited from 2006 through 2008. He left the company in February of 2010. Since then he has worked for Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling and Pro Wrestling NOAH among other companies.
