When the WWE Universe saw Shane McMahon jump from the top of the Cell in his WrestleMania match against The Undertaker, only to find The Deadman had moved from the announce table below, many thought that was the end of Shane-O-Mac winning the clash and taking over Monday Night Raw.
However, on the first Raw after The Showcase of The Immortals, despite not being scheduled to perform, Shane McMahon appeared on the program. Vince McMahon decided to give his son a chance of running the show despite his loss, and he delivered.
Not only did we see the Raw debuts of Apollo Crews, Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady, and Baron Corbin, but we also the return of Cesaro, and AJ Styles becoming the number one contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

In their latest preview for this week's show, the WWE is teasing the possibility of Shane-O-Mac taking control of Monday Night Raw once more.
The preview on their website says: "Even though he failed to defeat The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania, Shane McMahon was still granted a temporary reign as Raw’s showrunner — by Mr. McMahon, of all people. His first night at the helm of Monday night’s hottest show brought us a new Intercontinental Champion, several new Superstar debuts and the return of the fan-favorite Cesaro.
"It’s clear that WWE’s Prodigal Son didn’t fall on his face as The Chairman had hoped, and it’s equally clear that the WWE Universe likes the way Shane runs things. Will the risk-taking Shane-O-Mac have the opportunity to give us another crowd-pleasing edition of Raw? What might Shane’s success last week mean for The Authority?"
Could Shane McMahon take control of Raw for another week despite his WrestleMania loss? Perhaps. Maybe he could be on the show for an evaluation by his father for a chance to run the show once more thanks to the praised he received for running the program last week.
Dr. Phil McGraw, also known as 'Dr. Phil' from the hit TV Show of the same name, is coming to Raw this week at the Staples Center, and he is an expert of sorting out family affairs. He could be included in this storyline, as there is no set angle for him just yet.
And if Shane McMahon is given control of Raw for another night, we could see some more debuts. It has been widely speculated that former members of the Bullet Club, Doc Gallows, Karl Anderson, and NXT Champion Finn Balor could debut on the main roster soon. If Shane-O-Mac is given a chance to run the show again, tonight could be the night.
