That would be a big change of pace. There are a lot of moving parts to WWE but one of the few constants over all of the generations has been the McMahon Family. Whether you like them or not, there is almost no way that they will ever not be present in one way or another and that is something that will not likely be changing. They run the company, and another one might be getting involved in a big way.
While Stephanie McMahon and her husband Triple H seem destined to be the heirs apparent to Vince McMahon, there is another member of the family that some fans would like to see have a shot at it. That would be Shane McMahon, who has widely been seen as the McMahon most in touch with the fans. Shane is not usually around WWE full time, but that might not be the case any longer.
According to Sportskeeda.com, Vince is considering Shane as the next head writer of Monday Night Raw. Should the change take place, Shane would replace Bruce Prichard in the role. Prichard took over the job from Paul Heyman in June and is currently the head writer for SmackDown as well. Shane has been taking over more creative duties backstage, including sitting with Vince in the Gorilla Position and playing a big role in laying out the Royal Rumble. There is no word on when Shane will take over the job in full, assuming that he does.
Shane has definitely had some influence. Check out some of his ideas from this week:
Opinion: I’m not sure on this. On the one hand, Shane doesn’t have a lot of experience (if any) with booking, let alone the biggest wrestling show in the world. He’s had some good ideas over the years, but there is a difference between having some ideas and having a good mind to run a show. That being said, it’s not like Prichard’s ideas are great at the moment and maybe a different perspective can help a bit.
What do you think of the change? Will Shane be an improvement? Let us know in the comments below.
