WWE has been using Shane McMahon in different capacities on both Raw and Smackdown. In fact, he is the one to attend both the weekly programs on a regular basis playing the role of the authoritative figure of WWE TV. He has also competed on the weekly shows in recent times continuing feuds with The Miz and Roman Reigns.
The significant part about Shane McMahon is that he has been on a winning note ever since turning heel prior to Wrestlemania 35. He defeated both his opponents who’ve been former WWE Champions in the past. It is certain that there must be a reason why WWE is putting over the younger McMahon using the Grand Slam Champions.
Going by a report of WrestleVotes, Shane McMahon fans should be delighted to know the future plans around him. WWE is eventually trying to bring him into the championship picture. If the current plans remain intact that he will become the new WWE Champion, sooner. In fact, Kofi Kingston should drop the title to the self-proclaimed Best in the World on Smackdown.
Here’re the exact comments from the source hinting current push of Shane McMahon could possibly lead him into becoming 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.”
Vince McMahon became WWE Champion once in his career. He held the title for a week before vacating the belt. WWE may like to reincarnate the same power-hungry McMahon kind of storyline for Shane O Mac, as well.
This will definitely not be the first championship reign that Shane McMahon will have in his career. Earlier to this, he has been a former WWE European Champion, WWE Hardcore Champion and the winner of the WWE World Cup 2018. Plus, he had a WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship run alongside The Miz that lasted for 21 days before it ended at Fastlane 2019.
