Shane McMahon has gone from the surprise pop of the WWE Royal Rumble to not being affiliated with the company in under a week. Ringside News exclusively reported that McMahon made waves backstage with his pushiness towards the booking of the men’s Rumble match. The heat got so bad that McMahon’s creative plans were changed. Eventually, the company dropped Shane altogether.

Wild speculation took off online that AEW might be interested in Shane McMahon. Nothing has come out to point to that being the case. Shane McMahon may be open to the idea, but for now, anyone who says otherwise is just guessing.

That doesn’t mean some AEW stars aren’t going to have fun with the rumors. Dax Harwood shared some photos of FTR during their WWE days along with Shane McMahon. Dax gave Shane McMahon a shoutout.

“Hollatcha boys @shanemcmahon.”


Fans immediately began fantasy booking crazy scenarios in the replies. It’s a fun thought experiment to play with. It isn’t likely to become reality.

Shane McMahon’s epic Royal Rumble failure has fans all over the internet buzzing, even days later. The future between Shane and WWE is tenuous at best. Time will tell if Shane would ever be willing to take the drastic step of turning his back on his father’s company.
