Shelton Benjamin Shuts Down Royal Rumble Return Rumors

The rumors that former WWE Tag Team Champ Shelton Benjamin will be returning to the WWE during the Royal Rumble are inaccurate, and it’s coming straight from the horse’s mouth. Benjamin took to Twitter to shut down any misconceptions that he’ll be returning to in-ring action at this month’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV):

    I can see them using him in a few ways… Money in the Bank ladder matches… teaming with or feuding with Apollo Crews, and like you said, going against American Alpha. Aside from that…??

    Unless if it’s with Charlie Haas to go against American Alpha, I’m not really interested. They hyped up Curt Hawkins, who they really shouldn’t have and now he’s jobbing out or doing nothing. Benjamin has the decent resume but realistically what are they going to do with him? SD doesn’t really need him, at all. Put him up against who? The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, if he went to Raw that’d be even worse. He’d destroy all the jobbers then end up losing to Jinder Mahal. A shame they took this long to get him back, if he’s not putting anybody over, he’s not worth the reinvestment. He’s unfortunately on his way out.
