A character change for Shane McMahon is planned for the first quarter of 2019, according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The character change will most likely be part of the set-up for McMahon’s participation in WrestleMania 35.

Originally there had been plans for a Shane McMahon vs. Daniel Bryan match during WrestleMania 35 which would have been the result of a heel turn from Shane McMahon. The seeds of the planned heel turn were supposed to have been planted during the WWE Crown Jewel event.

During Crown Jewel, McMahon became the World Cup Champion through what many people felt was an abuse of his authority. He inserted himself into the finals to replace an “injured” Miz. He then proceeded to garner the win against Dolph Ziggler.

Compounding his “shady” World Cup win would be his frustration once Team SmackDown lost all their matches during Survivor Series. The combination of negative emotions was supposed to be what pushed McMahon over the edge into heel-dom and what would lead him to clash with Bryan in WrestleMania.

However, it is now being reported that the plans were changed when the decision was made to make Bryan the WWE Champion.

While it is believed that the heel turn has been scrapped, there are still plans for a character change for McMahon, but no word on what exactly it will be.

It is likely that McMahon’s current storyline with the Miz trying to befriend his “co-World Cup Winner”, could end up in the two men clashing down the road, maybe even at WrestleMania.
