During the last Royal Rumble, a character returned to the ring that puzzled many people, but who perhaps shouldn't surprise the WWE Universe so much when it comes to getting closer to Wrestlemania and we're talking about Shane McMahon.
It was also recently reported by Ringside News that the man was to be part of the Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship: “We were also told that WWE has changed the creative plans for Shane McMahon in Saudi Arabia.
role on the creative team confirmed to us that: 'Shane was supposed to be in the Elimination Chamber and Vince changed it today, with Theory replacing Shane.' " Then it was added: “Ringside News was told that Shane McMahon was supposed to be on Raw this week, but he ultimately missed the show.
It wasn't specified why Shane was absent, but plans have changed for him." Seth Rollins was originally set to feud with an unexpected name on the road to WrestleMania 38, per a new report that came out after WWE RAW. Shane McMahon made his big return to WWE during the 2022 Royal Rumble match.
He had quite an impressive showing in the free-for-all and was among the final four men in the ring.
Backstage News on Seth Rollins
In the latest edition of his Wrestling Observer Radio, well-known journalist Dave Meltzer reported that in WWE the idea of ââhaving the boss's son, Shane McMahon, clash with Seth Rollins, with the feud that was to begin right inside the 'Elimination Chamber.
"Shane McMahon was going to be in the Chamber and set up a feud with Seth Rollins over Wrestlemania," Meltzer said. "I don't know if this was going to be the WWE Championship match, but obviously - if it was or not - it was changed.
So I don't know what it has to do with Shane McMahon at Wrestlemania, but this had to be the step." Now it is necessary to understand if Seth Rollins will really give up Roman Reigns and focus on the WWE Championship, given that he will be one of the participants of the Elimination Chamber match in Saudi Arabia or will be revisited every now and then at SmackDown, but surely he will always remain at the high floors and for now behind a title.
For Shane, on the other hand, we should perhaps expect something else, perhaps a feud with Theory, given his bond with Vince.
