The second stage of Shelton Benjamin in WWE began in 2016 with a series of vignettes that announced his next return. However, it took several months to see him again on a ring, as he had to deal with a rotator cuff tear. Finally, he returned to action in August 2017 teaming up with Chad Gable to face The Ascension.
In his first months, he focused on the division in pairs with his partner Chad Gable. However, luck never smiled at them and they failed to win the tag team titles, despite beating the eventual champions, The Usos, via Count Out. Since then, the team separated and Benjamin resumed his individual career.
Shelton Benjamin joins the list of superstars that have been renewed in recent months by WWE. The last to do so were Randy Orton, the NXT UK champion WALTER, Nikki Cross, Dana Brooke, Mandy Rose and the New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods) and The Street Profits (Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins). All have signed a long extension of five years.
