Due to Shane McMahon’s unexpected exit from WWE, the organization is scurrying to make fresh arrangements for WrestleMania. Following the 2022 Royal Rumble, the wrestling world was shocked to learn that Vince McMahon had “quietly released” his boy from his WWE agreement and sent him back to the house.

Shane-O-Mac’s slot on the WrestleMania program was “positioned towards the top,” according to WrestleVotes, and the promotion is presently seeking for a potential “major attraction” with this year’s event, tweeting:

WrestleVotes tweeted, “Source states the spot Shane McMahon was going to have on the WrestleMania card was to be positioned near the top. Therefore, WWE now needs a new “major attraction” matchup outside of the titles. This goes w/o saying, but the WM card is still in complete flux. It’s quite amazing.”

On April 3rd, WrestleMania 38 will be broadcast live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

What influence will Shane McMahon’s departure have on WWE in the future?

It’s just been a week since Shane-O-Mac’s departure from the firm was announced “quietly.” During the Royal Rumble event, the younger McMahon reportedly clashed with WWE agents and producers, prompting his dismissal.

Shane’s release may have “ripple repercussions for years to come,” according to WrestleVotes, who tweeted:

“This Shane McMahon story could [see] ripple effects for years to come. It goes beyond anything that may or may not have happened Saturday night.”

The ripple effects appear to have already begun, with WWE trying to acquire another major act for WrestleMania. While this one may appear to be insignificant, there’s no way of knowing what this release may lead to in the future for the firm.
