The name McMahon has a significant history in the wrestling industry. Vince McMahon has been the pioneer of the mainstream wrestling industry and the founder of WWE. Vince along with his wife Linda, daughter Stephanie and son Shane are all a part of the wrestling business and the company WWE.

While speaking on “Monday Mailbag with Mike Chioda”, the former intercontinental champion revealed which McMahon of the four is the smartest one. Shane, according to Marella, wasn’t as present as Stephanie was throughout his tenure in WWE. He praised Stephanie McMahon and stated that she is the ideal role model and that he wants his daughter to follow in her footsteps.. He went on to explain that Linda McMahon is the sharpest of the McMahons and the intellect behind everything. He closed by adding that speaking with Linda is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“Shane wasn’t there as much as Stephanie while I was there,” Marella said. “I would tell my daughter, ‘You have to grow up and be like Stephanie, man’ … For the type of daughter I want to put out in the world, Stephanie is the perfect role model, and Linda is the smartest, Linda is the smartest of them all. She’s the brains behind everything, oh my God. If you get a conversation with Linda, it’s like, a special moment.”
