Shane McMahon vs. The Miz set for WWE WrestleMania 35

After their tag team dissolved at Fastlane, Shane McMahon opened this week's SmackDown with a challenge to The Miz to face him at WrestleMania 35. 

McMahon cut a promo that cemented his heel turn, which began at Sunday's pay-per-view with an attack on Miz in Miz's hometown of Cleveland. He stated that Miz's father has a "baked potato face," and promised to beat Miz down again on the grandest stage of them all. 

McMahon further established his new heel persona, reminding Miz that he works for him, and forcing ring announcer Greg Hamilton to repeatedly introduce him as "The Best in the World."

McMahon delivered his interview next to the WWE World Cup trophy, which he won at Crown Jewel in November. 

It appeared as though the cup was going to be the impetus for a McMahon turn soon after he won it, but that point has not been emphasized in recent months. Instead, McMahon and Miz formed a babyface tag team, with the cup serving as something of a comedy prop.

WrestleMania 35 is taking place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. New Jersey on April 7.
