Shane McMahon returned to the WWE prior to Wrestlemania 32. His inclusion to the company was a long time coming that helped to fresh things up, last year.
This return was the sole reason for the much-needed brand split that took place. Stephanie McMahon got the flagship brand, whereas, the prodigal son of Vince McMahon was handed the ownership of Smackdown Live.
In addition, Shane-O-Mac has also been used to hype up the dual brand PPVs by featuring in one-off matches. Following his return, he performed in three matches at the bigger PPVs in WWE calendar. Two Wrestlemanias and one Survivor Series witnessed his incredible athleticism inside the squared circle.
Considering that Summerslam is inching closer it is quite assumable that WWE Creative will look forward to sketching a plan around him so that he can have another marquee match at the second biggest PPV of the year. Going by the recent reports, these assumptions are not false, at all, as he might end up competing a Smackdown superstar, eventually.
According to the reports from Cagesideseats.com, the writes of the blue brand have already pitched the idea of pitting Kevin Owens against Shane McMahon for the Summerslam PPV. The storyline will kick-off from this week’s Smackdown Live, officially. This is going to be an interesting one considering that the Smackdown commissioner is a universal babyface, whereas, Owens is the bonafide heel of the WWE.
The seeds of the feud were already planted when Kevin Owens was forced to defend his US title against AJ Styles and Chris Jericho on Tuesday Night’s show, last week. He eventually lost the match by dropping the title to the Phenomenal One. This created frustration for him since he won the championship just two nights ago.
Prior to the match, The Prizefighter already had a confrontation with Shane McMahon hinting the upcoming rivalry. Apparently, that will continue even on this week’s show after he ends up losing the scheduled rematch for the US title against Styles.
He would try to put the blame on Shane culminating the match at the biggest party of the summer where the latter one is expected to digest yet another loss. Till date, Shane has lost all his PPV matches since his return and this time the outcome should not be any different considering he would put over a talent like Kevin Owens.
