Shane McMahon Rumored To Take Over Raw From Bruce Prichard

Shane McMahon is being considered to take over the Raw brand from Bruce Prichard, according to Alex McCarthy.

This would leave Prichard, a WWE Senior Vice President and the Executive Director of both SmackDown and Raw, to focus solely on SmackDown. Prichard is apparently struggling with the long hours and would like to lighten his workload.

Shane returned to WWE after a seven-year absence in 2016 after proving himself outside of his father’s shadow. In the past four years in WWE, he has regained an influential role backstage. His return also casts doubt on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon taking over for Vince McMahon.

Prior to returning for Raw Underground on Monday Night Raw, Shane had not been on WWE TV since losing to Kevin Owens on SmackDown’s debut night on FOX. He helped put together the men’s Royal Rumble match this year and frequently sits with Vince in the Gorilla Position at main roster shows.

The Raw Underground concept is clearly influenced by Shane, who advocated his father to get into MMA prior to his departure in 2009.
