Earlier this week, it was reported that Shane McMahon was being flown in by WWE for WrestleMania 38. This would be the first time that he has done anything with the company since Royal Rumble weekend.
The news about Shane at Mania weekend has led to speculation about what he might do at the pay-per-view. Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that people in WWE have not been told anything and he has not been talked about in creative and it’s believed that he is simply going to attend the Hall of Fame ceremony.
“Here’s the deal,” Meltzer said. “He was gonna go no matter what. He goes to the Hall of Fame, every single Hall of Fame. He’s always at the Hall of Fame. Of course, he’s gonna go with Vince inducting Undertaker to the Hall of Fame.”
Meltzer continued, “There’s always the chance that Vince is kayfabing everyone and there’s gonna be something but from what I was told, and this is from multiple people who are pretty high on the food chain, you never know 100 percent because it’s wrestling and also can change everything. But as far as Shane McMahon on WrestleMania or something like that – on the creative team his name has not been spoken about since January, it’s never been brought up. They are under the impression that he’s just going to the Hall of Fame. He’s gonna hang out at WrestleMania like he does every single year and it’s a non-story and that people are making way too much of it. We will see. There’s always the chance that they’ll do something at the last minute with him.”
Meltzer said that the story of Shane being at the Hall of Fame is not a big deal because he would attend the ceremony even during the years when he was ex-communicated.
