Randy Orton indicated that Bray Wyatt had a health problem keeping him out of the ring for part of his 2021 WWE hiatus.
Orton told The Pat McAfee Show, as transcribed by Wrestling-Edge, “There were issues where he wasn’t able to do a lot of stuff in the ring for awhile.” He called their feud ‘weird.’
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon’s son Shane McMahon was absent from WWE television after his mediocre feud with Braun Strowman last year. Shane McMahon made his shocking return during the Men’s Royal Rumble match this year where fans were not happy with him going toe to toe with established WWE Superstars such as ‘The Original Bro’ Matt Riddle. His performance also irked WWE Superstars backstage on top of that as well. This was due to the speculative rumor that Shane McMahon wanted to book the entire WWE Men’s Royal Rumble match around himself, thus causing an entire rewrite before the show went on-air. Shane McMahon’s WWE firing conspiracy was also revealed.
As previously reported, Shane McMahon was supposed to be on a previous week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. It was not revealed why Shane McMahon was absent, but plans for him have changed. In an update from the site, it was previously revealed that WWE had fired Shane McMahon after all the heat he got after producing the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
He is now set to be in Dallas Texas, for WrestleMania weekend. Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer News said that Shane McMahon will be present for this year’s WWE Hall Of Fame Ceremony for The Undertaker as he has never missed one to date.
I mean, [Shane] goes to the Hall of Fame every single Hall of Fame. He’s always at the Hall of Fame. Of course, he’s gonna go with Vince inducting Undertaker to the Hall of Fame. From what I was told, this is from actually multiple people who are pretty high in the food chain. You never know 100% because it’s wrestling, and also Vince can change everything. There’s always the chance that he will do something at the last moment but him being there… of course, he’s gonna be there. Has he like ever missed the Hall of Fame?
