This week’s WWE SmackDown Live was taped in Manchester, England. The show got started with an in-ring segment with Commissioner Shane McMahon and General Manager Paige.
Fans were not happy about Shane McMahon being booked to win the World Cup at Crown Jewel and they showed their disapproval with heavy boos and CM Punk chants. You can hear the negative reaction in the video below.
For what it’s worth, McMahon seemed to pull back on a heel turn because he told the crowd that his instinct made him jump in the ring on Friday and he told the fans that he might not be the best in the world and the World Cup trophy belonged to SmackDown Live and not him.
We’ll see if that is just a swerve of if WWE has decided to pull back on heel McMahon. The Miz and Daniel Bryan were announced as co-captains for Team SmackDown at Survivor Series. Their first pick to join them on the team is Shane McMahon.
