Shane McMahon resigns from World Wrestling Entertainment
This morning, a MAJOR CHANGE to the WWE hierarchy of management has taken place. Shane McMahon has announced that as of January 1st, 2010, he is resigning from his position as Executive Vice President of Global Media.
Shane McMahon, the son of Chairman Vince McMahon, has been both a strong backstage figure since he was a teenager as well as a popular television character, specifically in his feud with his own family throughout the Attitude Era. His most recent contributions was throwing the fakest looking punches at Randy Orton on an edition of WWE Monday Night Raw in January. Still, Shane was said to be a fun guy to be around and almost always fun to watch on television, in MY opinion.
Here is a quote from Shane himself over on the WWE site.
I have never even considered a future outside the walls of the WWE. However, sometimes life takes an unexpected turn and while it is the most difficult decision I have ever made, it is time for me to move on.
First and foremost, I would like to thank my father for the incredible education working with him has provided and for giving me the opportunity to play a role in building WWE into the global phenomenon that it is today. I am extremely proud to have been the 4th generation in this business, and I am grateful for everyday I was able to work along side not only my own, but the entire WWE family.
