John Cena and Edge have set a standard of returning from injury and winning the Royal Rumble. The rumor mill will start to wonder about Finn Balor.
Finn Balor injured his shoulder in a match with Seth Rollins to crown the first ever WWE Universal Champion. He had to vacate the title the next night.
Speaking of injured shoulders, we can rule out Shelton Benjamin, who every year seems to be a Royal Rumble rumor. Benjamin took to Twitter to say flat out, I won’t be there.
Benjamin we set to debut on Smackdown Live right after the brand split, returning after a six-year absence, but was forced halt his WWE return to undergo shoulder surgery.
