If there is anyone deserving of a push it has to be Shelton.  He has been an all around talent for many years and he has done whatever the WWE has asked him to do from wrestling on all three shows and ending up on ECW.  When he first came in the WWE, with Haas I saw how talented he was then and I still feel that WWE missed their mark with Haas as well.  They were a great tag team and complimented each other so well and really had great wrestling abilities. 

Then WWE breaks up the Tag team and Shelton goes out on his own.  Pretty much a mid carder whom works some slight stories/angles at different times.  I mean who all can forget the MOMMA angle, which I think lessened his wrestling talents and made a mockery of him and his abilities.  I know the one reason MOMMa came in was because Shelton cannot work a mic too good and that to this day is still what holds him back. 

In the ring technician he is and puts on a great display of talented moves.  He throws such quality dropkicks, quality suplexes{suplex is probably one of my fav moves}, and he can still make quality moves off the ropes---again proving he is an all around quality athlete and wrestler.  He sports a great physique and if they get ridda of his blond hair and crop that hair down he can become a mainstream looking character as well.  I was so excited when WWE brought in Atlas for Henry cause I thought maybe they would add Shelton into that stable, but after the month was over I realized Atlas was no prize, couldn't work the mic either, and really was no asset to Henry so why would he be an asset to Shelton. 

So where does the WWE goes with Shelton and where do I want to see the WWE go with Shelton.  I think with the break up of ECW, I say bring Shelton back to Smackdown and throw him into the MIB match at WMania.  I then say let him win and this way they can build up Shelton for the next 6-8 months before he cashes in the contract.  I think they should feud him with Morrison because they are pretty much the same wrestler, same build and this way John can put Shelton over and hopefully Shelton can work with John with his mic skills cause Morrison works the mic well.  After the 6-8 month period is over have him cash in the contract as a big surprise and have him go to Raw and capture the WWE belt from the newly crowned champ---Cena.  Then they can create a long feud---again I think Shelton can carry a match, carry a card, and carry a main event.  WWE do the work and invest the time in this great athlete---Shelton Benjamin, and just think how much stuff they can do with the name"the gold Standard"
