Below are some top WWE news stories of the day, involving Cora Jade and Shelton Benjamin.

• A recent tweet from Cora Jade has sparked speculation about her imminent return to WWE NXT. NXT held their Heatwave premium live event on July 7 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez successfully defended her title against Lola Vice. After the match, Jade teased her comeback on Twitter, suggesting she’s close to returning after her ACL injury.

WWE’s tweet celebrating Perez’s victory caught Jade’s attention, prompting her to warn Perez that her return was imminent. Although it’s unclear when Jade will be cleared to compete, her tweet indicates a desire to challenge Perez upon her return.

Here’s what she wrote:

“I was told an ACL injury heals in 6-9 months. That was in January. :)”

Jade suffered her ACL injury during a match against Lyra Valkyria at an NXT House Show in January. Since then, she has been diligently working on her rehab, sharing progress updates, including a video where she performed barbell squats with 155 lbs without a knee brace.

• The Bloodline vs. Hurt Business was a dream match for many fans due to the dominance of these factions during the WWE’s pandemic era.

Hurt Business, consisting of Bobby Lashley, MVP, Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander, led Monday Night RAW from 2020 to 2022 and left a memorable impression. Meanwhile, The Bloodline consisted of Roman Reigns and The Usos at that time and they ruled the heavyweight and tag team divisions on SmackDown.

In an interview with Metro, Shelton Benjamin highlighted the impact of the Hurt Business, stating, “I think the fact that there was no Hurt Business versus Bloodline war is one of the biggest mishaps in pro wrestling.”

Despite MVP’s efforts to reunite the Hurt Business before Benjamin’s release, Triple H was not interested in bringing the group back together.
