WATCH: Shelton Benjamin Hilariously Forgets to Take off His Mask Before Making His Entrance on WWE Raw

Published 01/25/2021, 10:33 PM EST


For many fans, Shelton Benjamin has already won Monday Night Raw by a huge margin. The one-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions walked to the ring sporting a mask which served as a PSA for the pandemic we’re currently living through. Benjamin walked out alongside his Hurt Business stablemates, only to realize a few seconds later that his mask was still on his face.

This may not count as a botch per se, but was one of the light-hearted moments on Raw. It is odd that neither Bobby Lashley, nor MVP, nor Cedric Alexander spotted Shelton leaving the backstage area and going through the curtain with the mask on.

After suddenly realizing he’s still got his mask on, he took it off in a hurry and readjusted his facial expressions. The manner in which he took off his mask was quite hilarious and made for a goofy visual.

Lashley and the team of Benjamin and Alexander are dripping in gold, and they were quick to point that out. The Hurt Business duo beat the New Day for the Raw Tag Team Championships at WWE TLC 2020. With MVP alongside them, each member of the Hurt Business has been vastly successful.

Riddle to take on the Hurt Business in a gauntlet match

R-Truth interrupted the segment and asked the Hurt Business for his twenty-four carrots, confusing 24 karat for the orange vegetable. Lashley and the Hurt Business tried to goad him into entering the ring, but the 24/7 title challengers interrupted.

While the jobbers kept the Hurt Business distracted, Riddle sneaked into the ring and hit MVP with the Final Flash knee strike. He escaped and celebrated as the 24/7 title challengers dispersed.

Riddle has been unsuccessful in challenging for the United States Championship but has not given up on his quest. Winning the US Championship would give Riddle his first main roster title win. He will join Samoa Joe, Ricochet, and Andrade as former NXT superstars who won the US Championship as their first title on the main roster.

Winning the gauntlet match would grant him an automatic title shot, and it would be a perfect filler match at the Royal Rumble PPV.
