Could a member of the McMahon family shockingly join All Elite Wrestling?

During the June 13th edition of the Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross stated that the possibility of Shane McMahon joining AEW is “so crazy that it might work”, and we now have an interesting update that might point towards the idea not being too farfetched.

During the latest episode of Grilling JR, Ross’ co-host Conrad Thompson provided more insight on the matter, revealing that McMahon has called AEW talent regarding the possibility of him joining the promotion.

“Last week, we got a lot of chatter online about some of the things we talked about. One conversation in particular really stuck out, and people were talking about it. It was about the idea of Shane McMahon possibly working with WWE. If you recall, you said, ‘It’s so crazy to think it might work depending on how it was positioned or introduced. Shane called me the other day. He’s called two or three times, which I appreciate. He’s always been sensitive in that respect. That’s only a question that Shane can answer. Shane and Tony being together, how would that work creatively? Heck, who knows, it might be great.’ I saw a few fans, one in particular, who thought this was the most ridiculous thing he had ever heard. One guy in particular said, ‘JR is fucking senile now.’ I engaged a little with that. There was a friend of ours, I shouldn’t say their name, but he went out of his way to text me and say, ‘Hey, that’s not as crazy as you think. I know for sure that Shane McMahon has reached out to wrestlers on the AEW roster to at least hypothetically discuss the idea.’ Are we saying that’s going to happen? No. We are saying it’s not that crazy of an idea,”

Shane McMahon has been absent from WWE since suffering a leg injury at WrestleMania 39 following an awkward landing during a match against The Miz. Since then, Shane’s father, Vince McMahon, has sold his shares in TKO and is no longer involved with WWE in any capacity.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on the future of Shane McMahon as soon as we hear more.
