Although Shane McMahon was not considered a professional wrestler, he was a part of some of the most hardcore matches on WWE history. The son of Vince McMahon and Linda McMahon, brother of Stephanie McMahon, and brother-in-law of Triple H has certainly created plenty of memorable moments during his WWE career.
Some of these moments include his infamous match against Kurt Angle at the King of the Ring 2001 pay-per-view, his match against Steve Blackman at SummerSlam 2000,Test at SummerSlam 1999, and Kane at Survivor Series 2003.
Two of the most recent death-defying matches Shane has was against The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania 32, and against Kevin Owens in a Hell in a Cell match at the Hell in a Cell 2017 pay-per-view.
In addition to his matches, Shane started off as a referee for a brief time in 1988 before appearing more frequently on television after joining The Corporation in 1998 and the Corporate Ministry in 1999. During this time, the McMahon family were some of the most villainous names in the WWF, and Shane fit right in.
In 2001, Vince McMahon bought WCW. To Vince’s surprise, Shane was on the other end of the jumbotron stating that he now owns WCW. This led to the WCW/ECW alliance feuding with WWE. Shane remained a important part of WWE until 2009 before departing from the company.
Shane McMahon Returns to WWE
In 2016, Shane McMahon came out to one of the most thunderous reactions in WWE Raw history as he returned to the company after a seven-year absence. His appearance led to a feud with his father, Vince McMahon, causing Vince to book a Hell in a Cell match with him against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 for the opportunity to lead the Raw brand.
The Undertaker won the match, and he also was under a great amount of pressure. He would have been forced to retire if he lost. While Shane was not able to gain control of Raw, he still became General Manager of SmackDown Live until WWE decided to terminate the use of GMs.
Shane then became more of an on-screen character, still with power over the brands since the McMahon family was still in control. He became a semi-regular competitor in 2019, winning the SmackDown Tag Team Championships at the Royal Rumble against Sheamus & Cesaro. Just a few weeks later, they lost the titles to The Usos, and Shane turned heel on The Miz which led to a Falls Count Anywhere match at WrestleMania 35.
Following this feud, Shane went on to feud with Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens, before currently being away from television for several months.
Throughout Shane’s WWE career, he has racked up reigns with the Tag Team Championship, European Championship, and Hardcore Championship. He also won the 2018 WWE World Cup tournament at the Crown Jewel WWE Network special.
