This week on Smackdown, Shane McMahon came down to the ring to announce that Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens would be going one on one at WrestleMania. After months of tension, Shane finally believed he had finally thrown a wedge between the duo, and that he could take a step down from his activities as Smackdown commissioner.

While that would have been a somewhat underwhelming end to a feud that has been brewing for the best part of 8 months, fans would have likely just been happy to see the whole debacle come to an end.

As it turns out, though, Zayn and Owens have been conspiring together again, and the duo attacked Shane, viciously taking out him with a chair around his neck, before dragging him backstage and hitting him with a powerbomb on some equipment.

The WWE is playing up this angle, and Shane will likely be out until the Smackdown before Wrestlemania, but he will want vengeance, and that vengeance looks as though it will now come in the form of a tag team match at WrestleMania.

Except, Shane is going to be in need of a partner, and taking a look at the current SmackDown roster, it's not clear who that is going to be.

With that in mind, let's take a look at five options for Shane McMahon to choose from, however unlikely they may be.


#5 John Cena

Big Match John looks all set for a showdown with The Undertaker at this year's Wrestlemania, and after this week's Raw, it's fairly safe to assume that will happen.

For just a minute, though, let's entertain the idea that The Undertaker is not going to accept Cena's challenge. If that is the case, then Cena will still be in desperate need of a match at Mania, and Cena loves nothing more than defending a noble cause, especially when that cause is such an integral part of the company.

With his big bad brother-in-law Triple H tied up at Mania, Shane is going to need someone legitimate in his corner at Mania, and Cena would be the perfect option for him.
