Shane McMahon Rumoured For Another High-Profile WrestleMania Match

The SmackDown commissioner could be in for another eventful 'Mania battle.

Shane McMahon is thought to be booked for another high-profile WrestleMania match, following on from the previous two years' bouts against The Undertaker and AJ Styles.

This news comes from @WrestleVotes via NoDQ.com, who point out that this is the same Twitter account that broke the story of Neville's current uncertain situation with WWE. The tweet in question is below:


The speculation here is that McMahon's current feud with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn will continue to WrestleMania, and that he could potentially face both in a tag match alongside a mystery partner.

The most obvious conclusion to jump to - from a sheer storyline perspective - would of course be Daniel Bryan, Shane's fellow authority figure on SmackDown, who has seemed curiously sympathetic towards the heels in recent months.

The key issue here is that Bryan has yet to be cleared for competition by WWE, fuelling constant speculation that he'll leave the promotion to wrestle on the independent scene midway through the year.

If WWE were to clear him - a possibility that Bryan himself has described as unlikely - it would certainly make sense to involve him with Shane McMahon in some way.

If Bryan remains a non-wrestler - and Shane's tag match remains a likely outcome - there's no telling who this mystery partner will be.

Another possibility is that of a singles match, perhaps one pitting Shane against Owens or Zayn - although he has already faced KO in a one-on-one situation at last year's Hell in a Cell pay per view.

Whatever the outcome, it probably wouldn't be too surprising to see Shane set foot in a WrestleMania ring for the third year in a row. As well as potential opponents or tag partners, the other major question would surely be what stunt he'll pull this time around. At 'Mania 32 he infamously jumped from the top of the Hell in a Cell structure, and last year he attempted a Shooting Star Press from the top rope.
