Shane McMahon returned to WWE television after long hiatus during this year’s edition of the Men’s Royal Rumble match. Ringside News reported his appearance and his performance in the match was not necessarily anything to write home about. It seems Ric Flair has an interesting opinion about Shane McMahon’s situation.
Shane McMahon had a substantial amount of heat on himself for taking over the men’s Royal Rumble match booking as McMahon simply went into business for himself. After that, creative plans for Shane McMahon changed due to all that heat.
That is not all as we also reported that Shane McMahon was quietly let go by the company. Vince McMahon ultimately had no choice but to fire his son in the end. McMahon was frustrated over Vince shooting down his Royal Rumble changes.
While speaking on the Wooooo Nation Podcast, Ric Flair addressed Shane McMahon being let go by WWE. Flair stated that he thinks it could all be a work in the end.
“I like Shane McMahon as a person, he has always been great to me my whole life. Of course, I do not have enough good things to say about Vince. It’s a very uncomfortable topic and situation for me to discuss because I just do not know enough about it.
No, but I really do not see see Shane being put through this brief period of humiliation for it to be something that’s not real either. If your family is as closely knit as they are, why would you let that be the top subject in WWE news for two weeks? I hope it’s a work.”
Brock Lesnar was also not happy about Shane McMahon’s plans before the Royal Rumble. Dax Harwood recently reached out to Shane McMahon as well. It remains to be seen what is next in store for Shane O Mac and where he will return to WWE or not.
For the record, Shane McMahon leaving WWE is not a work. Ringside News has exclusively documented this story all the way.
