5Shane McMahon Explained His Actions At Fastlane
SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon kicked off the show to a chorus of boos from the crowd. Shane McMahon brutally attacked The Miz after their loss against The Usos at Fastlane. The Miz’s father was ringside for the match and Shane taunted him during the attack.
Shane stood next to the Best in the World trophy in the ring as the crowd chanted “you suck!”. The SmackDown announce team stated that The Miz was not here tonight and was at home with his father. Shane asked the ring announcer Greg Hamilton to refer to him as the best in the world and demanded that he say it over and over again until he got it right.
Shane stated that he is tired of everyone asking for his help so that they can get ahead in life. He boasted about beating the hell out of Miz and claimed that he was the best in the world because he was born that way. Shane added that from this point forward, he is going to start doing things for himself.
McMahon added that it felt so good to choke The Miz out in front of his “potato face” father at Fastlane. Shane said that he had such an amazing time beating The Miz’s ass and he’d like to do it again at WrestleMania. He then warned Miz to get ready for another “best in the world” beating and that for him, it will be “awesome”.
