According to former WWE writer Dave Schilling, the original plan for Shane McMahon’s match against The Miz at WrestleMania 35 was quite different from what actually happened in the ring. The two former SmackDown Tag Team Champions faced off in a highly anticipated singles match at the event, following McMahon’s heel turn a month earlier when he attacked The Miz after a failed attempt to recapture the tag titles from The Usos at Fastlane.
As per Schilling’s recent Twitter post, The Miz was initially supposed to secure the victory at WrestleMania 35. However, the decision was changed at short notice, and McMahon was booked as the winner instead. Despite this last-minute alteration, the Falls Count Anywhere bout between the two wrestlers was still widely considered as one of the best matches of the night.
The match culminated with The Miz suplexing McMahon off a scaffold and into the crowd. Despite being on the receiving end of the move, McMahon managed to record a pinfall victory by landing on top of The A-Lister. WrestleMania 35 featured a whopping 16 matches, with four taking place on the kickoff show. McMahon’s victory over The Miz was certainly a memorable moment that kept fans on the edge of their seats.
The only thing I have to say about Miz vs Shane McMahon is Miz was supposed to go over until the day of the show.
