Shane McMahon was prepared to make a major announcement regarding the Money In The Bank Ladder matches last week on SmackDown Live. The Miz spoiled the party by blindsiding his former tag team partner before any such announcement could be made.
On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez revealed that there was (likely) no actual announcement in store and the angle was actually a set-up for The Miz to attack Shane to further hype their rivalry.
“It was probably a set-up for The Miz just running in to attack him. Maybe they’ve got a plan. I have not heard of the plan. It is possible that they had a plan and by this coming Tuesday they will have forgotten the plan. I do know that.
We have RAW and SmackDown lineups this week and there’s no mention of Shane McMahon making an announcement that will change both the Money In The Bank ladder matches.”
The Miz and McMahon will be squaring off inside a steel cage this Sunday at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view.
