Shelton Benjamin Cleared to Wrestle Following Shoulder Surgery


We reported several months back that Shelton Benjamin was slated to return to WWE, but discovered he had a torn rotator cuff in a physical he took for the company.  Benjamin had surgery to repair his shoulder, and his return to WWE was put on hold.

Today, Benjamin took to Twitter to announce that he is now cleared to wrestle again.  The tweet is shown below.  He went on to note that he is available for appearances, seminars, and signings as well.

Bill Says:  One has to wonder if Benjamin will return to WWE now that his shoulder is healed.  He was slated to head to Smackdown, where his talents definitely could be used on the card.
