This year’s Men’s Royal Rumble match ended with Brock Lesnar pointing at the WrestleMania sign as it caught fire. That match’s planning was also full of drama.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Shane McMahon has massive heat backstage. He was lead writer and producer of the Men’s Royal Rumble match and there were a lot of issues. He was argumentative and changed things a lot. Seth Rollins was even booked in the match at one point. Many finishes were thrown around and it was utter frustration for so many involved.
Later on, a report came out saying that the Men’s Royal Rumble match producers were Abyss (Chris Park), Jamie Noble, Shawn Daivari, and Adam Pearce without Shane McMahon’s inclusion. We have learned that information came from a script sheet and does not reflect how things really operated backstage.
Ringside News was told by a tenured member of the creative team that Shane McMahon and Jamie Noble produced this year’s Men’s Royal Rumble match. Park, Daivari, and Pearce were also there, but their involvement was needed due to how many people were in the match.
Chris Park, Shawn Daivari and Adam Pearce were involved but they were there because of the number of participants in one match. There are a lot of messages to carry. Shane and Jamie were the lead producers.
Shane McMahon has produced the Men’s Royal Rumble matches for the past couple of years, and that did not change this year. He was in charge and worked with Jamie Noble to arrange this year’s match. Sadly, it was not a smooth process whatsoever and he “buried” Jamie Noble while trying to book the match around himself.
As Ringside News exclusively reported, Shane McMahon is also in line for a WrestleMania program.
