Sam Roberts podcast: Are we seeing the beginning of a Shane McMahon heel turn?

Thanks to Sam Roberts for the following:

This week on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, Wade Keller joined Sam Roberts on The State of Wrestling.  During a conversation about the build to Survivor Series, Sam suggested that we may be seeing the beginnings of a Shane McMahon heel turn.


Sam Roberts talking to Wade Keller on a Potential Shane McMahon heel turn

“SR: …Who knows where this is going with Shane because as you said, him going and invading Raw is a mean thing to do and it has led to the beloved Daniel Bryan being beaten up which no fans want to see. Kevin Owens whole thing was that Shane wants to put himself ahead of everything, if his character is doing that, which it is, who knows that after Survivor Series someone brings up that he is becoming the next Mr.McMahon and letting power go to his head.

WK: I would like that, but WWE hasn’t instilled in me a faith, based on the way that they portray, he has said if I am in a fight I was always taught to punch first. I don’t sense it’s part of a masterplan but I don’t think you can rule it out, if Shane orchestrated this and Daniel is trying to clean the mess and Shane is turning it is a good pay-off. I’m not sure looking at the landscape what the pay-off is, Stephanie can’t ever turn babyface so would you turn Triple H? Or you have him not worry about a match and have him try to fire Daniel Bryan.

SR: You could have someone from SmackDown step up because there is going to be another big Shane McMahon match and I would think we will at least have one at WrestleMania if not the Royal Rumble, maybe he enters himself in the Rumble and that’s the catalyst and you have some hero eliminate Shane, you tell the same story the bad guys have told except this is true.”
