– As noted, Shelton Benjamin was supposed to return to WWE as part of the SmackDown Live brand last year, but plans were put on hold when he underwent the standard WWE physical and learned that he had a torn rotator cuff. Benjamin’s expected recovery time was to be around six months.
Benjamin recently noted on Twitter that he has been cleared to compete. Keep in mind that he still needs to pass WWE’s standard medical tests before he can return to in-ring action for the company. It will be interesting to see which brand WWE places him on.
After 9 of the hardest months of my life, I'm happy to announce I have been OFFICIALLY CLEARED to return to action. Effective Immediately!

– WWE has posted another video of Seth Rollins’ WrestleMania 33 Diary filming in Orlando as he prepares for his upcoming match against Triple H at WrestleMania 33 this Sunday. Rollins said that when he joined The Authority, he lost the chip that was on his shoulder and the need to prove something as he became entitled. Rollins said that he felt like he didn’t have to work for anything anymore and that is not who he is. He noted that he realized that Triple H turned on him was when he cost him the Universal Championship in August on RAW. You can watch the video here:
