It's the heat they are probably thinking about because that's the only reason they would put the title on him.
Anyone could get heat if they were booked as a heel and were given as much TV time as Shane. The fact that they CHOSE a 51 yr old Shane to be the mega-heel over talent like Bryan, Black, Joe, and NXT Owens in 2019 is atrocious. And honestly, I see it as more so go away heat than actual heat.

Some waste of time. Probably Shane or Brock. I'm almost expecting Shane to win the title, because they're overpushing the hell out of him. It's probably not gonna be Brock because they wouldn't relegate him to the B show, but he's the other choice. I don't think they trust anybody else. Maybe another Bryan push. Damn sure won't be Owens, Joe or Bray, since they're the ones who would make the title picture watchable.
If its not NXT Owens, then he's not watchable. Joe and Bray I agree with. No one wants to see the current Owens doing stupid chickenshit heel garbage with Sami Zayn.
It’s going to Brock to set up Roman / Brock for the Fox run.
They're probably gonna have Reigns beat Shane, then have Lesnar beat Rollins. Lesnar will then unify the titles at Summerslam. Then they'll do a unification match at Wrestlemania for Reigns 6th coronation as #Roman2Belts. That'll save the ratings. This is the biggest and most boner-inducing scenario for Vince McMahon. (unless The Rock comes back to put over Roman)
They might as well pull the trigger and completely become WCW.
Shane as the champion is right up there with David Arquette in terms of embarrassment.
WWE will have stooped to a new low if they go through with it.
