Shelton Benjamin should of never been let go. The WWE is his home. He's from the 2002 class from OVW and his push was bigger than Cena and Orton's from day one until they decided to bury him because he's not "White" enough to be on top.
I think Benjamin gets a decent pop...Carlito? I doubt it.
no, the real reason why shelton benjamin wasn't on the top is because benjamin said it himself that it will be too much pressure for him to become a world heavyweight champion. So Shelton decided to stay on midcard level until he was buried.
