Shane McMahon hasn’t been seen since the Greatest Royal Rumble when he took a bump he really didn’t need to. He was thrown from the turnbuckle through an announce table eliminating himself like classic Shane-O. But he was still injured and needed hernia surgery which he has since gotten.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that McMahon is sitting on the sidelines and there’s no plan for him to take a position of authority backstage in WWE.
“There’s no movement to get him back in power, in any kind of power position. He’s just a performer. I don’t know how he’s doing after surgery they haven’t brought him back to TV for whatever reason yet.”
“Maybe they just want to get Paige over. They don’t need him on TV. I mean really. Paige is fine in the role. Save Shane for when they’ve got a reason for him to be there and I haven’t seen a reason of late.”
So we might not see Shane McMahon back until he’s ready to take another ridiculous bump he doesn’t have to take. Because with Paige as GM, they really don’t need another authority role on the 2-hour show.
