Shane McMahon is considered to be one of the most hardcore professional wrestlers in WWE. There aren’t many in the business who have put their bodies on the lines to deliver some really memorable moments as Shane O’Mac. When you think of him, you don’t really think about a massive professional wrestling career, but you do know that when he is performing a really massive leap is incoming.

Shane is the son of WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon and has been with the company since he was 15 years old. While we have seen him in several roles, Shane is etched in our memories because he has jumped from every possible place in the arena! He was last seen on WWE at Wrestlemania 37, in a match against Braun Strowman.

Shane McMahon was one of the very few surprise entrants of this year’s Men’s Royal Rumble. He entered the match at No.28 and managed to eliminate his former rival Kevin Owens. In fact, he was also among the Final 4 of the match including Bad Bunny, Drew McIntyre and the eventual winner Brock Lesnar.

But in addition to being a participant of the match, Shane McMahon was also the lead writer and the producer of the 30-Man Royal Rumble match! As per reports from Ringside News, the son of the boss came under severe criticism and has substantial heat backstage because of the way the match panned out.

The heat reportedly came due to the fact that he had built the Rumble around himself. While him being a surprise entrant is justified, him being put over the other talents isn’t. He had some high moments against Kevin Owens and Riddle. Shane even went on to be in the Final 4 – a spot which could’ve been filled by either an upcoming star or even the veteran home-boy Randy Orton. In fact, he also had some intense moments with Drew McIntyre and was eventually eliminated by Brock Lesnar.

Reportedly, Shane McMahon’s appearance in the Men’s Royal Rumble match wasn’t a one-off thing. He is back for a longer run and could even be seen in WWE’s upcoming PPV Elimination Chamber. But there is still no clarity on whom he would be feuding against.

Elimination Chamber will be taking place in Saudi Arabia this year. This is the first time the PPV is heading outside North America. We don’t know whether McMahon will be in a match inside the Chamber, but we can surely expect him to jump off of it!
