Shane McMahon kicked off this Tuesday night’s edition of Smackdown Live, as advertised, in order to explain his actions this past Sunday night at WWE’s Fastlane pay-per-view.
In case you missed it, Shane O’Mac brutally assaulted his now-former tag team partner The Miz following their loss against Smackdown Tag Team Champions Jimmy and Jey Uso, choking out the A-Lister in front of his father and his hometown Pittsburgh crowd.
The heir to the McMahon empire explained — after making the blue brand ring announcer reintroduce him as the “best in the world” three separate times — that it is his birthright to be called the greatest of all time, and he doesn’t need a giant trophy to prove that.
He also stated that he had so much fun beating down his “co-bestie” at Fastlane, he was making the match official. We will see Shane McMahon vs. The Miz on the Grandest Stage of Them All, as WWE invades New York and New Jersey in just four weeks time at WrestleMania 35.
