Shane McMahon’s return on Raw was something special; a rare, genuine surprise in a world of spoilers and unbearable smart marks.
I was laying in bed when Shane’s music hit. Ironically enough, I sat up like the Undertaker himself when I heard “here comes the money,” and I remained glued to my TV through the remainder of the segment. I was immediately sold.
The next few weeks included some absolutely killer promos from all involved — Shane, Vince, Stephanie, and the Undertaker.
It’s all pretty exciting, and feels real. Well, as real as a match involving a superhuman zombie mortician can be.
You know what makes it even more exciting? Not having a clue about what’s going to happen next.
It seems weird that Shane McMahon would come back for a quick one-off, then disappear, after failing to accomplish his goal of running Raw, and righting the ship. It also seems downright impossible that The Undertaker could lose to Shane-O-Mac, and wrestle his last WrestleMania.
So what the hell is going to happen next?
