Give the API a try. Tool location - C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Tool is named MBAMAPI.exe. Open an admin elevated CMD prompt. Something like:

CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware"
mbamapi /quarantine -restore file "C:\Windows\Temp\wbxtra_05312018_221755.wbt"


Formatting the command is as follows:

Restore Items from Quarantine
Usage:
mbamapi /quarantine –restore <class> [specification]

Purpose:
This command restores items which have been quarantined by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Please note that a reboot is usually required before a quarantined item may be restored, due to Delete On Reboot technology used by the program.

Parameters:

  • all
    • All quarantined threats
  • file
    • File “<drive>\<dir>\<file>”, where string is enclosed in double quotes.
  • folder
    • Folder “<drive>\<dir>”, where string is enclosed in double quotes.
  • key
    • Registry entry “<hive>\<key>”, where string is enclosed in double quotes.

Just tried your suggestion above and it's still in quarantine. I made sure to run the Command Prompt as Administrator. Is it possible that the program that the file is associated with still needs to be installed on the PC before it can be restored? It appears that the WBT file is part of WebEx and that program is removed from the PC.
