5 Ups & 3 Downs From Last Night's WWE SmackDown (Nov 7)

Shane McMahon The New Day

Shane McMahon needs no excuse to cut rug with the very worst of them whenever WWE cameras roll.

An integral part of his act since before half of his roster were old enough to watch him swing sticks and miss kicks in the Attitude Era, 'Shane-O-Mac's daft little entrance swivel seems now as ingrained in McMahon lore as not selling for midcarders and [redacted for legal purposes].

His insufferable hot-dogging in a show-opening drag-along with The New Day was the latest opportunity for the Commissioner to break more than just a sweat, busting moves with the trio until perhaps the most rational heel act in professional wrestling history Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn came out to spoil the party.

Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods are no strangers to McMahons inching in on their act. As heels they once had to cheerlead as Stephanie McMahon and Triple H bust moves alongside them on Monday Night Raw. Kofi even took a Pedigree at a Chilean house show just for having the temerity to encourage Hunter to dance again. Shane at least held back his fists of fury.


Square eyes on a square head, trained almost exclusively to Pro Wrestling, Sunderland AFC & Paul Rudd films. Responsible for 'Shocking Plans You Won't Believe Actually Happened', some of the words in our amazing Wrestling bookazines (both available at shop.whatculture.com), and probably every website list you read that praised Kevin Nash.
