Jonathan Coachman Says Wrong Match Closed WrestleMania 32, Talks Shane McMahon Being Underrated

Recently on The Ross Report, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross interviewed former WWE personality and current ESPN broadcaster Jonathan Coachman. 'The Coach' claimed that the Hell In A Cell match between Shane McMahon and The Undertaker at WWE WrestleMania 32 should have closed the show. Also, Coachman had some very high praise for 'Shane O Mac' saying that he would be considered one of the all time great performers in professional wrestling if he was not Vince McMahon's son.

'The Coach' stated that Shane McMahon versus The Undertaker should have been the main event of WrestleMania 32.

"The one thing I would have changed, and [Ross] will remember this, when [The] Rock and [Hulk] Hogan finally met in Toronto [Canada], and that was the year they decided that the championship was going to mean everything. And so, Triple H and [Chris] Jericho went after that match. Such a mistake! That match was epic. It was 45 minutes of brilliance and the play-by-play was brilliant. And I thought, 'this is going to be Toronto all over again.' That's what it felt like to me. People want to see Shane jump off the cage or jump off the cell and then go through the table and have that look from Taker be [the last image before going] off the air."

Also, 'The Coach' argued that Shane McMahon would be viewed as one of the greatest performers in professional wrestling history if he was not Vince McMahon's son.

"If he wouldn't have been Vince's son, he would be considered one of the great performers of all time."

In addition to these topics, Coachman talked about whether he would return to WWE, WWE's relationship with ESPN, and much more. Click here to listen to the show. If you use any of the quotes in this article, please credit The Ross Report with an H/T to Wrestling Inc. for the transcription.
