Shane McMahon Returning For WrestleMania Match?

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 by Ringside News, 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.

‘The Best in the World’ Shane McMahon’s last WWE WrestleMania matchup was at WWE WrestleMania 37 against ‘The Monster Among Men’ Braun Strowmen’ – the two competed in a Steel Cage Matchup where Strowman eventually came out on top. That WrestleMania event was held at Tampa Bay, Florida.

It was also reported that the company had big plans for Shane McMahon for the WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event on February 19th in Saudi Arabia. According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Shane McMahon was supposed to compete against Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 38.

“I’m pretty sure that something’s going to be worked out for Seth Rollins at WrestleMania. Even if they have to call Shane back, who was actually going to be his original opponent.”
