Shelton Benjamin Cleared To Wrestle
Shelton Benjamin announced on Twitter today that he is cleared to wrestle after 9 months rehabbing a torn rotator cuff. This implies his WWE return is imminent, as the former Intercontinental Champion signed a new deal in July 2016 but never made it to TV before the injury.
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!

Benjamin was originally slated for the SmackDown Live! brand, so his return could be as soon as Tuesday.

Hall of Fame Inductees To Be Reduced?
WWE are considering reducing the number of Hall of Fame inductees next year according to Jerry Lawler. He noted on his Dinner with the King podcast that the event runs too long and the company struggle with keeping the legends within their allotted time. Instead of tightly controlling speeches, The King believes they may just induct less people.
This would also help buffer the problem of running out of Hall of Fame worthy inductees.
