Two of WWE’s well-kept surprises have now been revealed! WWE Universe will see the return of two former WWE superstars, Carlito and Shelton Benjamin, at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view this Sunday night.
Since leaving WWE back in April 2010, former WWE Intercontinental Champion Shelton had been working in New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor. He became a popular tag team champion in ROH. In New Japan, he teamed up with another former WWE superstar MVP and won the tag team titles. He recently requested and was granted his release from the company. Carlito, on the other hand, left WWE in 2010 and has been working the indy scene as well as overseas with WWC.
WWE creative team always tries to make their most popular Pay per Views like the WrestleMania or the Royal Rumble a little special with some surprises. Well, this year too seems to be no exception. Last year we saw the return of Road Dogg, Booker T and Diesel aka Kevin Nash in the Royal Rumble match.
WWE is yet to confirm another popular superstar MVP’s status for the Royal Rumble. But as always, in WWE, you should be prepared for surprises!
