Huge SummerSlam match planned for Shane McMahon?

Shane McMahon

Shane McMahon put on a great performance in his match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 33. Now it looks like he might be lacing up his boots once again for SummerSlam.

According to some reports, WWE Officials are planning a match between the newest Smackdown star Rusev and the commissioner of the show, Shane for the SummerSlam PPV.

The groundwork for this feud seems to be laid already as we have seen Rusev demanding a WWE Championship opportunity from Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan through video packages in the weeks following the Superstar Shake Up.

Since the commissioner of SmackDown has built the show as a place where you have to earn an opportunity, it’s quite clear that Rusev will not be handed over the title shot he wants for free.

On this basis, WWE can easily build a rivalry between these two SmackDown stars leading to a match between the two at SummerSlam, similar to what happened with AJ Styles.

Though it’s just a speculation for now and whether or not WWE puts these two superstars against each other should be revealed when the time for SummerSlam comes around

    How about Shane never wrestles again. It was a crime that AJ had to carry him thru a wrestlemania match. Super Shane can leave the WWE now, we have grown bored of him again.

    The only match that Shane McMahon needs to have at this stage of his career is SHANE-O-MAC VS. THE KING OF KINGS HHH. Basically this would be one of those rare matches that blurs the lines of what’s real and keyfabe in the world of professional wrestling. Shane should have had this match at WRESTLEMANIA 32 but of course that didn’t happen. Things are very much different now than a year ago mostly due to the Brand Split and the fact that Steph and Triple H are running Raw while Shane is on Smackdown. The best way to build this feud is to have Mr. McMahon announce his retirement on WWE programming but also admit he can’t decide his replacer. Obviously this would infuriate Steph and Triple H who have been loyal to the company for many years while Shane decided to take a hiatus. Somehow and somewhere a match will take place between HHH and Shane with the winner having full control of the company. This could potentially be the biggest match in the companies history with by far the biggest stakes. They could also make it to where the entire company is in shambles with Vince leaving and having a split where Raw Superstars are with Triple H and SmackDown Superstars with Shane and the entire undercard of the PPV is the brands fighting each other and could possibly help fuse the WWE back together after the current brand split has run its course.

    So he goes from fighting The Undertaker in Hell in a Cell, to AJ Styles, to Rusev???? Nothing against Rusev, but how does that make any sense? They better have some insane build-up for this one to get me invested.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Rusev shouldve stayed on Raw, especially now since Braun is injured.

    Brock vs Samoa Joe or Brock vs Rusev would be awesome

    Probably another rumour which Sportskeeda has started…
