WWE’s tag team division lacks in-depth for quite sometimes. If you have observed the storylines from recent times, then they could not utilize teams like The Revival or The Club to their full potential. In reverse side, The New Day has not received challengers for their title ever since winning those belts at Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
So this is desperate times for the company where they are likely to create new tag teams to fill up the void. This could be a desperate step from their part as there two simultaneous tag team divisions present on both Raw and Smackdown rosters. The team of Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman was an impromptu example who won the Raw tag team titles on this past Monday Night.
Additionally, another such tag team might be waiting to make their debut in due course on Smackdown Live division. As per the reports of Wrestling News, Chad Gable could reunite with his former partner, Shelton Benjamin to form their old tag team. WWE seems to have big plans around them as they could be on the verge of getting a big push.
Reports claim that the former Intercontinental Champion, Shelton Benjamin will have a changed name as he is set to perform as a tag team member. His changed name will be Shelty B who will have Chad Gable as his tag partner with an altered name, as well. His name will reportedly be Shorty G. There’s no update available on what their team name could be. But the plan around them sounds interesting.

WWE intends to use this team of Gable and Benjamin regularly. So they will receive a solid push the moment they start functioning. Considering the storylines, it should just be a matter of times that these two eventually get together. As for their names, it might sound quite hilarious. But Shorty G and Shelty B are catchy names that would attract the younger audience.
In case you have forgotten, Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin were tag team partners for a long time in the past. Once The American Alpha was no longer intact from NXT, Gable found Benjamin as his new tag partner who was not able to win the titles. But now they can expect to hold the gold as WWE has big plans around them as well as there’s a lack of relevant teams on the roster.
