Shane McMahon wanted to enter the Royal Rumble in the #1 spot

Last updated

As noted earlier this week, Shane McMahon has been “quietly let go” from WWE following issues backstage at the Royal Rumble event.

In an update, Fightful Select has reported that Shane O’Mac apparently wanted to enter the Rumble match in the #1 spot.

The site wrote: “Several sources have indicated that Shane McMahon specifically wanted to go on in a spot that would highlight him, with one even mentioning that he pitched the number one spot.

“However, we’re told that Vince McMahon personally came along and said that he’d be making changes to the match and wouldn’t be doing much of what Shane laid out.”

There’s currently no indication as to what McMahon will be doing going forward, but what is clear is that it won’t be with the WWE.
