Shane was last seen getting fired by Kevin Owens on the October 4 premiere of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX.

It is no secret that WWE has been struggling over the years with ratings. The saying ‘when it rains it pours’ can appropriately be used for the current situation Vince McMahon is in.

Vince McMahon not only has to deal with ratings but also competition from AEW, COVID-19 losses, and a dearth of Superstars on the roster. One cannot forget the return of the NBA and Baseball.

As problems keep mounting, like a couple of times in the past 15 years in front or behind the camera, Vince McMahon looked towards Shane-O-Mac to ‘save the day.’

However, Shane-O-Mac didn’t come just to give a normal pep talk or backstage segment. He brought a new theme and format to Monday Nights.

RAW Underground is a new theme that runs simultaneously along with the normal RAW edition. The setting was somewhere in some dark place in the performance center, there was a ring with no ropes and cheerleaders.

One won’t be wrong in saying it looked similar to Tyler Durden’s (Brad Pitt) fight club. The only good thing coming out is many Developmental talents at the Performance Center are getting a chance.

RAW Underground may be good or bad and the fans are judiciary in this case. However, one needs to credit Vince McMahon for putting in an effort to try something different with his limited resources.
