WWE has now confirmed that Shane McMahon will be “running” tonight’s RAW from Los Angeles. It should be noted that he is not being advertised to appear live. WWE announced the following:
Even though he failed to defeat The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania, Shane McMahon was still granted a temporary reign as Raw’s showrunner — by Mr. McMahon, of all people. His first night at the helm of Monday night’s hottest show brought us a new Intercontinental Champion, several new Superstar debuts and the return of the fan-favorite Cesaro.
It’s clear that WWE’s Prodigal Son didn’t fall on his face as The Chairman had hoped, and it’s equally clear that the WWE Universe likes the way Shane runs things. In fact, due to the overwhelming support that Shane received throughout social media throughout the past week, Mr. McMahon has announced that his son will once again be in control of Raw tonight.
How will Shane follow up last week’s night at the helm? What will his continued success mean to the overall power base of The Authority? Does the WWE Chairman have something planned to derail his son’s further accomplishment? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network.
