Shane McMahon returned to WWE television as the host of RAW Underground. Now he could be in for way more responsibilities backstage.
Alex McCarthy of Talk Sport reports that Shane McMahon is a in consideration to replace Bruce Prichard as head writer of WWE RAW. Prichard has been over both brands since Paul Heyman’s exit as executive director of the red brand.
“One source in WWE has told me Shane is being considered to take RAW off Bruce Prichard’s hands leaving him to concentrate on SmackDown. Another layer to the story is Prichard making no secret about the fact he’d like to lighten his workload and he’s been struggling with the long hours.”
We will keep a close eye on this situation and will let you know if you hear any updates right here at Ringside News. It looks like WWE’s entry into the ThunderDome could come with a big change for the red brand as well.
