Shane McMahon made what can only be described as a monumental return to World Wrestling Entertainment to confront his dad and sister, Vince and Stephanie McMahon, in a story line that seemed to breathe new life into a tired product leading into the company's biggest show, "Wrestlemania."
But just as quickly as the WWE Universe (what the company refers to its fans as) took in a deep sigh that things were looking up, the crack writing staff took a promising angle and story and left us scratching our heads.
I'm a big believer in not judging wrestling storylines until I see how they play out. That is putting a lot of faith and credit into the writers of the flagship WWE show, "Monday Night Raw." What I'm suggesting is that Shane McMahon's return is really about where they go from here, and less about the massive ovation he received on February 22, 2016 when he returned to television after a seven year absence.
In short, and from a storyline perspective, Shane returned and seemingly had some dirt on his dad (or Vince made a bad business move) and allowed his son to come back and want to take control of WWE. Vince said sure you can if you can win a match of his choosing, which just happened to be against WWE legend The Undertaker next month at "Wrestlemania."
Here's where things start to get a little odd.
