SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon has been off television for quite a while now, and several questions have been raised about his status in the company.
As per Dave Meltzer, the 48-year-old is being kept off the action as there is no need for him to be involved. This also gives McMahon to truly heal from the health issues he faced prior to WrestleMania.
Meltzer also added that another possible reason for keeping McMahon off TV would be to have Paige grab the spotlight as an authority figure in the blue brand. Here’s what Meltzer had to say:
“Maybe they just want to get Paige over. They don’t need him on TV. I mean really. Paige is fine in the role. Save Shane for when they’ve got a reason for him to be there and I haven’t seen a reason of late.”
