Shane is the best in the world?
Today at WWE's 'Crown Jewel' PPV In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on-top of an already stacked match card, the WWE World Cup tournament commenced and concluded. The tournament consisted of The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton. All eight men listed above were competing to be crowned the "best in the world".
This past Tuesday on SmackDown Live, commissioner Shane McMahon told the SmackDown representatives of the tournament that whomever made it to the finals would have to win and if they didn't win then they would be fired from the blue-brand. Representing SmackDown in the finals was former WWE Champion The Miz going up against the RAW representative and longtime rival Dolph Ziggler.
As the match got underway, The Miz "landed awkwardly" and injured his leg and it was decided by the official that he could no longer compete and instead of letting RAW have the easy victory, commissioner Shane McMahon who was at ringside decided to fill in for The Miz and in rather quick fashion after Shane executed his signature moves, he bested Dolph Ziggler and was crowned "The Best In The World".
