Shane McMahon rumoured to take on Dean Ambrose at WrestleMania 33

Goldberg’s return to the WWE looks to have changed numerous original plans the company had put in place for WrestleMania 33.

Before there was even any inkling of a Goldberg return, rumours suggested we’d be seeing Shane McMahon battle Brock Lesnar in Orlando.


This would be the culmination of The Beast Incarnate’s actions at SummerSlam, when he hit the SmackDown Live commissioner with an F5 after destroying Randy Orton moments earlier.

However, the 86-second victory at Survivor Series has now resulted in the two men expected to meet at WrestleMania, with the Royal Rumble match being used as a platform to set that up; exactly what we saw back in 2004.

This obviously changes the plans for McMahon, and the role he could play at the Grandest Stage of Them All.

He’s still expected to compete at the event, and The Inquisitr are reporting that he could be going up against Dean Ambrose instead.

The WWE have started to show some on-screen tension between the pair already, and they’re doing it now so they can set up the feud for later, while The Lunatic Fringe is still involved in some feuds, such as challenging AJ Styles for the WWE World Championship at the TLC pay-per-view.


They’re claiming nothing significant will happen between McMahon and Ambrose until the rivalry with The Phenomenal One comes to an end.

This suggests Ambrose could potentially complete his long rumoured heel turn in time for that match if it’s definitely the feud they decide to go with.

This isn’t the first match that’s been rumoured for McMahon, either.

Following the Lesnar rumour, it was thought Triple H could potentially be an opponent for him as they’d use the control for power as the catalyst for this rivalry.


However, it’s no secret that Seth Rollins vs. The Game is the clash they’re building towards, and it is scheduled to conclude at WrestleMania 33 – despite being originally booked for this year.

For Ambrose, the immediate plan is for him to have a match with James Ellsworth at some point, but we all know that’s not a WrestleMania-worthy bout, so we may have to wait until next year for things to really kick off with him again.

It’s certainly an intriguing prospect, as fans still love to see McMahon in the ring, especially if it's against someone who also has very little care about his wellbeing in the ring.

Don’t expect this one to unfold until 2017, though.
