• WWE Officials Worried About Vince McMahon Possibly Ruining NXT Storylines This Week
Shane McMahon is set to crown new SmackDown Tag Team Champions on the upcoming episode of SmackDown Live.
Below is what WWE posted:
Shane McMahon will crown new SmackDown Tag Team Champions
“SmackDown LIVE was thrown for a loop last week when, due to Jeff Hardy sustaining a knee injury at the hands of Lars Sullivan, The Hardy Boyz had to relinquish the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
With the state of both the blue brand’s tag team division and the titles in question, Shane McMahon will arrive on SmackDown LIVE this Tuesday to crown new SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
What will Shane-O-Mac decree? Find out this Tuesday night.”
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials are worried that Vince McMahon might ruin NXT storylines this week by bringing up NXT wrestlers to SmackDown as the tag team division on the blue brand is very weak.
Below is what Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio:
“Shane’s going to be all over SmackDown with this Tag Team tournament thing — I don’t even know if they’re going to do a tournament because on SmackDown they’ve got two teams.
One’s Heavy Machinery who haven’t even been on SmackDown and the other is Rusev and Nakamura. Then the other teams are the B-Team and the Colons, right? So unless they switch someone over which they may do or bring someone up, because I know there are people who are afraid that Triple H’s storylines are going to get messed up again [in NXT] because Vince McMahon is going to want to bring people up again.”
