It was a good indication when the prodigal son of WWE was given with one-half of the company by his father this past week on Raw. The hardcore pro-wrestling circuit was happy with the decision since a brain like Shane would certainly be fruitful for the biggest wrestling promotion in the world. Whether the flagship program of WWE will still be in control by of the hardcore McMahon rules, the newly shaped blue brand will certainly deliver what the crowd wants.
The boss Mr. McMahon was present to address the situation on Raw and he relieved his prodigal son from the duties of running WWE Raw. He appointed Stephanie as the sole runner of Raw whereas Shane McMahon was appointed as the figurehead of Smackdown. The decision was welcomed by the WWE Universe.
Now, the excitement f the fans might not last long as Shane will soon be on permanent hiatus from WWE TV. According to the latest from Wrestling Observer, Shane was overheard telling his friends backstage that he is uncertain about his future in the company. He is not quite sure for how long he will be seen in WWE television programming.
The chances of Shane McMahon taking hiatus is likely true since he is appointed as the Commissioner of Smackdown and would communicate through the General Manager of Smackdown. So he will more be seen in the backstage role afterwards.
Now on the upcoming episode of Raw will see both Shane and Stephanie McMahon will announce the General Managers for the respective brands. Speaking of which, news leaked out a couple of days back that Daniel Bryan is going to be the one who will run the day-to-day activities on Smackdown.
Shane himself posted a tweet revealing the fact that he has come to an agreement with the new Smackdown General Manager whom we will get to know on the upcoming episode of Raw.
I’m very excited to announce that terms were agreed to today with the new SmackDown GM. The person will be revealed live this Monday on Raw.
