This week’s episodes of Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live saw The McMahon Family usher in a New Era in WWE. Per Triple H, the WWE Universe is now the authority and there’s a babyface aura prevailing over the entire product.

Owing to the big “shake up” that has caused WWE to change directions, two major storylines leading up to WrestleMania 35 have been
apparently scrapped – Shane McMahon heel turn and Alexa Bliss as RAW General Manager.

Shane winning the inaugural WWE World Cup at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia was supposed to be the beginning of a storyline that would eventually lead to McMahon turning heel – something he hasn’t been since his return to WWE in 2016.

Dave Meltzer noted on the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Shane was supposed to turn heel in January but WWE appears to have dropped that plan.

There was also a reason why SmackDown suffered a complete sweep at Survivor Series (McMahon’s heel turn could have some connection with it) but it seems that plan has been scrapped as well.

Over the past few weeks, Shane has teased an alliance with The Miz but things never really took a firm shape. However, fans can finally see both men come together as a team next week on Christmas (Tuesday) night.

Meanwhile, plans for Alexa Bliss to become the next General Manager of Monday Night RAW have been scrapped too.

Bliss was reportedly going to replace Baron Corbin as RAW’s GM but that storyline seems to be out of the window now.

This week, WWE made it clear that they will be moving forward without any authority figures thereby pulling babyface Paige from her role as General Manager of SmackDown Live.

Bliss has been out of action since October after suffering multiple concussions within a short period of time and is expected to make her return at the Women’s Royal Rumble match on January 27, 2019.
