WWE's Shelton Benjamin out of action with injury

It's just the second time in his career that Benjamin has been on the shelf due to injury.

WWE's Shelton Benjamin has revealed that he's currently out of action with an injury.

The 46-year-old Benjamin announced the news in a tweet on Saturday, noting that it's just the second time in his career that an injury has put him on the shelf. Though Benjamin didn't disclose what type of injury he's dealing with, he stated that he'll be back in the ring soon.

"For only the second time In my career An injury has put me on the shelf," Benjamin wrote. "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!"

Benjamin hasn't wrestled since teaming with Cedric Alexander in a loss to The Street Profits on a recent episode of WWE Main Event. That match was taped on April 25.

Outside of Main Event episodes, Benjamin's most recent appearance on WWE television was last month's WrestleMania 38 go-home edition of SmackDown. He was one of the entrants in the 2022 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
