• Heel Turn Storyline Dropped After This Week’s Announcement
According to the Wrestling Observer, there were plans for Shane McMahon to turn heel after he won the WWE World Cup at WWE Crown Jewel PPV, but those plans were nixed after this week’s announcement of McMahons running both RAW & SmackDown.
Speaking of Shane, Fightful is reporting that the team of Shane McMahon and The Miz might be next in-line to become the SmackDown Tag Team Titles by defeating The Bar.
Shane & Miz are currently involved in a storyline where Miz thinks the WWE World Cup trophy is “their child” and they have been teaming up as of late.
If Shane & Miz end up winning Tag Team Gold, then this wouldn’t be the first time that Shane O’Mac would be holding a Title in WWE.
Below are Shane McMahon’s accomplishments in WWF/E:
– WWE World Cup winner to crown the ‘Best In The World’
– 1x WWF European Champion
– 1x WWF Hardcore Champion
