Shane McMahon made a surprise return at WrestleMania 39 but it didn’t appear to go as planned.
McMahon, who hasn’t been on WWE TV since January 2022, made the shocking return to take on The Miz in an impromptu match. Much like Saturday night, Snoop Dogg thrust The Miz into the match. McMahon came out and thanked the crowd for the reception.
He would whip The Miz into the ropes and jump over him as ran across the ring. As McMahon landed, it appeared he injured his knee and it didn’t appear to be a part of any angle.
As McMahon was being checked on, Snoop Dogg had to improvise and he got involved in the match. He nailed The Miz with a right hand.
Snoop Dogg then performed The People’s Elbow and pinned The Miz for the victory in a chaotic scene.
Triple H, WWE’s Chief Content Officer, said at the post-event press conference that McMahon tore his quad.
It’s the second consecutive night The Miz was put into an impromptu match even as he served as the host for WrestleMania at SoFi Stadium.
On Saturday, San Francisco 49ers star George Kittle was sitting ringside with his wife when The Miz came over to talk trash to the superstar tight end who was on the cusp of making the Super Bowl for the second straight season. After Kittle dismissed him, The Miz pushed Kittle back down onto his seat.
Kittle removed his jacket and hopped the barrier. He delivered a vicious clothesline to the wrestler and set up McAfee to do a flip onto The Miz and take him out. McAfee would win the match and he and Kittle would celebrate in the ring.
