It would not take him very far. There are a lot of people who need to work together to make WWE run as smoothly as possible. This is not easy to do and much of what you see on television comes from the minds of the company’s manufacturers. These people help put the program together, though some of them have different priorities. It was seen over the weekend and it did not go well.

This weekend’s Royal Rumble contest for men featured the return of Shane McMahon, who entered the contest at # 28 and eliminated Kevin Owens before making the final three contestants. According to, there is a significant amount of heat behind the scenes at McMahon, which was the lead writer and producer for the game. McMahon is said to have insisted that the game be built around himself and overturned and “fought with people to do so”. It is said that some wrestlers, including some who never complain, complained out loud about how hard McMahon was pushed into the match.

Opinion: This is something that probably will not go well, as the Royal Rumble is the kind of game that can be used to put new stars on. If McMahon wanted to be the focal point of a match won by Brock Lesnar (while the women’s Royal Rumble was won by another returning star in Ronda Rousey), it would never be well accepted. McMahon was not long in the game, but he was from toe to toe with Drew McIntyre and eliminated Owens. If he wrote the game, how good can it make him look?

What do you think of McMahon? How did you like the game? Let us know in the comments below.
