On last night's WWE Smackdown broadcast, Rhyno made his official return to the WWE main roster while a video package promoted the return of Shelton Benjamin.  As PWInsider.com Elite subscribers already know, they are not the only former WWE talents set to return.

PWInsider.com can confirm that Jinder Mahal, last seen as part of 3MB several years ago, has signed a deal to return and will be featured on the Raw brand.  We broke on 7/17 in the Elite section that Mahal was expected to return.  We can also confirm that the former (and possibly future) Curt Hawkins, Brian Myers, will be returning to the Smackdown brand shortly.

There have been a number of other former talents who have been talked about internally and/or contacted about returning, including Melina, MVP, Carlito and Tommy Dreamer, although whether they will be returning remains to be seen.  Another name that has been brought up has been Stevie Richards, who recently finished a stint as a Guest Coach at the WWE Performance Center.
