Mike Chioda Wouldn't Be Surprised If Shane McMahon Showed Up In AEW

Could it happen?

While many would consider Shane McMahon turning up in All Elite Wrestling to be a major shock, Mike Chioda wouldn't be surprised if the 52-year-old showed up on Dynamite. 

Shane was previously with WWE but The Boy Wonder was reportedly "out" of the company after he garnered heat for his involvement with the Men's Royal Rumble, with his actions backstage considered to be so bad that he left Vince McMahon with no choice but to let him go. 

Speaking about the situation on Monday Mailbag with Mike Chioda, the former WWE referee told listeners "don't be surprised if we see Shane pop up on AEW."

"I'm not convinced all the way but if it did happen, don't be surprised if we see Shane pop up on AEW. Let's put it this way, you got a million coming to you if you don't do this in 90 days but Tony Khan wants to pay him 3 million to show up, what do you do? Shane is a popular draw man, he shows up," Chioda said.

"Does he got some sh*t still left in his tank? Yes he does. He's come back, he's busted his ass with the talent and I just don't see where there's no room for Shane McMahon in WWE. Shane McMahon is WWE too, to me he is."

AEW President Tony Khan has discussed Shane potentially joining the promotion, noting he would at least take a call from the son of Vince McMahon. 

"I'd certainly take the call. I'm sure he'd be an interesting person to talk to about wrestling. I'm not sure exactly if he would be a fit. I have not heard from him, and I don't expect to hear from him, but in this business, you never know," Khan told Sports Illustrated.
