    Both of them are better than 90% of the current roster.

    Now that’s cool!

    Two of the most underrated WWE Superstars of the past. I honestly believe if Shelton’s Mama angle wasn’t cut because of the large ladies health problems…Shelton would have been a HUGE star in WWE.

    Now Carlito! He is great on the mic and in the ring….so he should been the future of WWE but they always wanted him to job and “spic” up his character too much for comedy.

    Gobble’n Gooker or we R I O T

    Just a one off appearance or full time return?

  7. Nic says:

    Carlito has some of the most natural timing and talent i’ve seen. If his work-rate ever matched his talent he’d have been HUGE. Shelton is a freak. Always loved watching him. 2 great additions to any roster.

  8. Atlee Greene says:

    If, Shelton Benjamin is coming back to the roster full time, I hope he found some charisma in ROH.

  9. Joe says:

    Finally some good news

  10. Drew says:

    Great news!

  11. Jake Allen says:

    I really don’t know the answer to this, but statistically how many of these surprise entrants from past RR’s get to last longer than the next two entries? Don’t they usually get a big entrance to the ring, and immediately get knocked out by some current roster wrestler?

  12. Paul says:

    Very glad to have both these guys back. Hope they stay.

  13. Scott says:

    Remember the year Curt Hennig returned and lasted until the final four? @Jake Allen you’re right, it’s unlikely but if any of them do that’s a good sign they might stay around until Wrestlemania or beyond.
