WWE Raw superstar and former hurt business member Shelton Benjamin has been ruled out with an injury for an indefinite period

WWE star Shelton Benjamin took to Twitter to announce his injury. He announced that he had received an undisclosed injury that will keep him on the shelf for a while.

The 46-year old wrote, “For only the second time In my career An injury has put me on the shelf. I’ll be back soon. In the meantime I will be putting in the work to come back better than I was before my little setback. See you guys soon!”

The veteran also revealed that it was just the second time in his career that an injury ruled him out. According to reports, he was once out with an injury before WrestleMania 20 way back in 2004 and again before his return to the company in 2017, where he had suffered from a torn rotator cuff.

Benjamin has been off television for quite some time. His last televised appearance was on 1st April 2022, where he took part in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal, in a losing bout. He last competed in the 25th April 2022 episode of Main Event, where he and Cedric Alexander lost to the team of Street Profits.
