An update has emerged on Shane McMahon’s WWE status following Vince McMahon’s retirement.
Shane McMahon was notably ‘let go’ from WWE with major backstage heat following the Royal Rumble event in January. Vince McMahon had reportedly went as far as to say that Shane wouldn’t be getting another pop in WWE while he would be around.
Vince notably announced his retirement on July 22. Chairwoman Stephanie McMahon and President Nick Khan were named the new WWE co-CEOs.
Per Wade Keller of PWTorchVIP.com, there still a divide between Stephanie McMahon and her brother Shane.
Not expecting Shane McMahon to show up now Vince is gone, Keller noted:
“I’m told Stephanie definitely has ideas. This is a job she has coveted since she was barely a teenager, maybe a preteen. I’ve told the story quite a bit over the years (about) Stephanie, and Jerry Jarrett told me the story on record that he was having dinner with the McMahon’s and either he or someone at the table said, ‘Shane, you know, someday you’re going to be running the company like your dad.’ And Stephanie was years younger than Shane, established her Alpha attitude.
“She jumped in and said, ‘Uh uh, daddy’s little girl is going to be the one running the show someday not Shane.’ That rivalry has been there. The divide between those two, I’m told, is still there. And there is no reconciliation or power sibling team expected.
“It’s like, you know, the siblings hang out, they yell, they battle and they double cross each other, but they hang out. And they talk. And the impression I’m getting is that’s not happening with Shane and Stephanie. So, by the way, don’t expect Shane to enter the picture here unless he just, you know, goes rogue and just shows up at a show.”
