Fightful has reportedly spoke with several people close to the Royal Rumble match that took place this year, with more information coming out about the Shane McMahon drama going down behind the scenes.
Several sources within WWE have shared that Shane McMahon specifically pitched to have the #1 spot. However, the report states that Vince McMahon personally interjected and nixed some of Shane's plans.
There's another report coming in that Shane McMahon was actually supposed to be number 29, and Orton number 28, which got reversed last minute. Those sources from within the company said Shane reacted hastily, and Orton told Shane that they're playing his music so he'd better get out there. The report also states Orton literally threw himself to the floor laughing hysterically at Shane's music playing before his.
