The Royal Rumble 2022 also bequeathed to us the alleged estrangement of Shane McMahon from the WWE. Vince's son reportedly generated such chaos backstage that management sent him home. A few days ago, WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page offered an interesting point of view on this controversy: “You don't have to believe everything that happens in the world of wrestling.
Shane has always been a man of depth, in fact, I was blown away when I learned the news that he had been removed from the company. I do not exclude that this story is part of a larger project. Shane is a Hall of Famer and I've had several interactions with him in the past, I don't see why he should be crazy at any moment.
Part of me suggests it could be a storyline”. In the latest edition of his podcast, Jim Cornette expressed his opinion on Shane's future.
Jim Cornette on Shane McMahon
"There are several rumors starting to circulate about Shane McMahon's possible arrival in All Elite Wrestling" - began Jim Cornette.
“While there may have been some disagreements with Vince McMahon and the WWE, I don't see how Shane can go to work in a rival federation. He doesn't even need money” - he added. Cornette did not appreciate the epilogue of the men's Royal Rumble match: “Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre were the last two survivors of the royal brawl.
The sequence that allowed the Beast to win was frankly ridiculous. McIntyre clumsily missed a kick, Brock picked him up and knocked him out of the ring in a matter of seconds. Drew is not involved in the title run at the moment, but he came out of the Royal Rumble with broken bones.
We are talking about a former world champion, who has not received adequate treatment. Four hours of the show to arrive at an embarrassing conclusion." Meanwhile, at the moment, although there is little to no chance Shane will wind up in AEW, there was a comment from the company's CEO and President Tony Khan recently where he told reporters: "I’d certainly take a call from Shane McMahon.
I’m sure he’d be an interesting person to talk to about wrestling. I’m not sure exactly if he would be a fit. I have not heard from him, and I don’t expect to hear from him, but in this business, you never know."
Added to the equation is the large number of current disgruntled wrestlers fired from WWE in recent months. If Shane wanted to recruit a battalion of them to go into AEW, it would rock the wrestling world.
