WWE started channeling some promos around Shelton Benjamin following the brand split that took place in 2016. The vignettes used to air during Tuesday Night stating that he is going to be back on Smackdown live, sooner.
However, that did not happen due to him sustaining an injury just after that. At that time when he went on to sign the WWE contract, he was perfectly okay. The damage to his shoulder was discovered during the WWE doctors checking him up during the routine medical checkup in Pittsburgh. He was sidelined for an indefinite time and underwent a surgery to fix the problem.
The fans of the dynamic superstar were heart-broken by this unfortunate incident. Shelton Benjamin was cleared to make an in-ring return nine months after the surgery which was just prior to Wrestlemania 33.
Following this, the WWE Universe started to speculate whether he will be available to make a return in near future.
The speculations were fuelled up after the biggest event of the year when multiple sources confirmed that WWE and The former Intercontinental Champion are in talks to make a deal. But it took both the parties a long time to finally reach an agreement.
The Golden Standard was back on the scene on Smackdown Live following the Summerslam PPV. He is performing as the tag team partner for Chad Gable.
Recently in WWE.com, he disclosed the journey of the comeback where he gave credits to Lilian Garcia.
She had a conversation with the former WWE ring announcer who gave him the motivational speech and said that it’s never too late for a WWE return.
Check out the comments, here:
“I had always been waiting for the call, instead of pursuing the call. And, this is going to be very out of left field for anyone that hears this, but me coming back actually started with a conversation during WrestleMania 32 weekend with Lilian Garcia.”
“I ran into her and we were just talking. Basically, she slapped some sense into me. She said: ‘put yourself in a position to succeed. Don’t be afraid to initiate.’ You’re never too old to learn something new. When someone is giving you wisdom, the source can come from anywhere.”
With the supports by their side, we can certainly expect the team of Gable and Benjamin to be the top tag team of the Smackdown division, sooner than later. The veteran superstar has still plenty left to give away to his fans and he is expected to deliver, certainly.
