Shane McMahon strictly an on-screen character…for now


Shane McMahon’s return to the WWE sparked several rumors about him returning full time to the company in an executive role however at this point, Shane is not spilling out any additional information.

McMahon said that his only concentration for now is WrestleMania and his Hell in a Cell match against the Undertaker while a WWE spokesman told the New York Post that Shane is currently strictly an on-screen character only and fans should not read more into it.

When Shane was asked about a corporate return, he didn’t shoot it down, but he didn’t say yes either so his role in the company will probably be more clear after WrestleMania 32 is over.

Prior to his departure from WWE in January 2010, he served as the company’s Executive Vice President of Global Media. After leaving, he went on to become the CEO of You On Demand, China’s first video-on-demand and pay-per-view company. He stepped down from that role in 2013 but remained as Vice Chairman of the board. He has a net worth of $36 million.
