As we previously reported, Shane McMahon had successful hernia surgery after taking a huge bump at the Greatest Royal Rumble, but he hasn’t appeared on TV since. In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio (via Ringside News, Dave Meltzer suggested that this is because Shane isn’t needed on TV right now.
He said: “Theres no movement to get him back in power, in any kind of power position. Hes just a performer. I dont know how hes doing after surgery they havent brought him back to TV for whatever reason yet. Maybe they just want to get Paige over. They dont need him on TV. I mean really. Paige is fine in the role. Save Shane for when theyve got a reason for him to be there and I havent seen a reason of late.“
