• Rusev Takes A Shot At Shane McMahon & WWE
According to Fightful, WWE wrestlers aren’t happy with how much TV time “The Best In The World” Shane McMahon is getting with his push.
Below is what Fightful reported:
“We’ve not heard of Shane being criticized personally, but that the decision to heavily feature Shane McMahon in the middle of a Wild Card scenario that already limits screen time for others is infuriating.”
Speaking of Shane O’Mac’s push, WrestleVotes recently noted that it wouldn’t be surprising if Shane ends up defeating Kofi Kingston to become the WWE Champion.
I’ve asked what the payoff is to this major Shane McMahon push & TV time allotment. No one seems to have a solid answer. One source said he could see (JUST HIS SPECULATION HERE) Shane being the one to defeat Kofi for the title. That would be something.
