Shelton Benjamin is returning to WWE after six-year absence

One of the most athletically gifted and underrated WWE stars of the last decade is making a comeback. After six years wrestling in Japan and on the independent circuit after leaving WWE in 2010, former three-time Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin is making a return. 

Benjamin’s comeback was announced in a promo on SmackDown Live Tuesday. 

You might remember Benjamin for his jaw-dropping run up a ladder to clothesline Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 21. 

He was really, really good at running up ladders.

His stellar match with Shawn Michaels is a must-watch, and one of the best-ever matches that happened off a pay-per-view.
