As reported, Shelton Benjamin was supposed to return to WWE for the SmackDown Live brand last year, but those plans suddenly changed upon discovering that had a torn rotator cuff, which led to his return to the company to be delayed.
Benjamin noted on Twitter today that he has been cleared to compete.
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!

Shelton still needs to pass WWE’s standard medical tests before he can return to the company.
