Shane McMahon has been an integral part of the WWE ever since his shocking return to the company before Wrestlemania 32. Apart from being a solid backstage authority figure for Smackdown, the star has also stamped himself as a part time wrestler.
In his stint spanning 2 years now, McMahon has faced The Undertaker, AJ Styles, Kevin Owens and led Team Smackdown Live in their Survivor Series elimination encounters.
The veteran has diminished his image as just a stuntsman by adding several weapons to his arsenal while not toning down the high spots. McMahon is turning to be an integral part of Wrestlemania as his opponent seems to be decided with Mania only a few weeks away.
Despite embroiling in a high profile clash of egos alongside Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, it seems that the path for McMahon is derailed as the Commissioner of the blue brand is rumoured to face “The Showoff” Dolph Ziggler.
Ziggler has recently tied down his future with the WWE after signing a bumper new contract, making him one of the highest paid stars in the company. Although, Ziggler managed to capture the United States title at the Clash Of Champions event, the star decided to relinquish the title and walk out of the company, only to return back at the Royal Rumble at No. 30. However, Ziggler failed to create any sort of impact.
Ziggler is scheduled to fight for the WWE Championship alongside five other men at Fastlane. The seeds for the prospective match between Shane and Ziggler is expected to be planted at the event.
As per Brad Shepard of Bodyslam.net, the plans are already in place. He reported:
“It looks like plans have recently changed and now Shane McMahon’s match, it sounds like his opponent will be Dolph Ziggler. From what I’ve been told, that’s what they are looking to do.”
