The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the dark match Shelton Benjamin worked prior to this week’s Smackdown taping was well received by both the live audience and WWE officials.
The feeling at this point is that it’s highly likely WWE will make Benjamin an offer to return to the company following WrestleMania 27. Benjamin himself noted on Twitter that he may or may not be returning to WWE.
PWTorch.com is reporting that The Undertaker is still rehabbing his rotator cuff after having surgery to repair the injury late last year. While WWE officials remain hopeful that ‘Taker has rehabbed enough that his match against Triple H at WrestleMania will not suffer, the feeling is that the injury was bad enough that it will confine his mobility in the long run.
Additionally, while there is speculation that The Undertaker may be retiring soon after WrestleMania, the feeling is that as long as he keeps himself in good enough shape and works a very reduced schedule, he could continue to appear at WrestleMania for several more years.
