Shelton Benjamin Shoots Down Royal Rumble Rumours

By Phil1990 · Friday, January 6, 2017 · 0 Comments


The 2017 Royal Rumble is now merely three weeks away and already there is speculation about who WWE could be having as their surprise entrants.

The most popular ones right now seem to be Matt Hardy, Kurt Angle and Finn Balor, but it seems that Shelton Benjamin is also now on that list. 

The former Intercontinental Champion resigned with WWE a few months ago following the Brand Split but suffered an injury that prevented him from making his re-debut with WWE. 

Sadly, Benjamin has shot down the rumours that he will be a surprise entrant on Social Media where he talked about how accurate WWE rumours actually are. 

He wrote: "Recovery is going well. Still months away from anything physical so all the RR predictions are as accurate as they've been the last 6 years."

So, Benjamin definitely won't be in the Rumble, that leaves one more space for another surprise entrant instead then.
