Change in Raw opening titles indicate Shane McMahon staying

Shane McMahon made his shocking return to WWE before WrestleMania when it was announced that he would face The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match, which if he won, would mean he would get control of Monday Night Raw.

Although Shane lost the match, for the last three weeks, it was announced that Shane would be in charge of Monday Night Raw anyway, with the most recent show coming from London, England.

As Dean Ambrose hinted at on this week's episode of Raw, any episode could be Shane McMahon's last.

However, with the Raw opening titles changing, it seems that Shane McMahon will be involved for the foreseeable future. Whether that's as a General Manager or another possible role. 

Raw opened as usual with the opening titles following the "Then, Now, Forever" slide and a shot of Shane McMahon's signature jog is clearly visible.

The ongoing storyline is that Shane's time in charge of Raw was only for the April 4 edition. Due to "overwhelming social media support," Shane was welcomed back on the April 11 edition.

The news broke once again on April 18, that he would also be hosting the Raw from London, England. Although nothing has been confirmed for next week's Raw, now that Shane is part of the opening video, it certainly seems likely that he will be sticking around for the foreseeable future.

The former European and Hardcore champion has also entered a mini feud with Kevin Owens and while a wrestling contest is not likely between the two, Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon will seemingly be continuing their onscreen rivalry in Shane's bid for stars such as Sami Zayn to have their fair share of opportunities. 

It's interesting to note that the Authority, who were running Raw before Shane McMahon was given the opportunity, have been gone from WWE since WrestleMania 32 when Triple H lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to Roman Reigns.

With The Authority and Shane McMahon both wanting control of Raw, it seems likely that a storyline will happen with them.

It's very unlikely that WWE would have changed the production of Raw's opening titles if Shane McMahon was only staying for this week's episode in London. 

It's pretty safe to assume that Shane McMahon simply isn't going anywhere soon and the change in opening titles prove this.

Should WWE just name Shane McMahon as the General Manager of RAW? Have YOUR say in the comments section.
