Shane McMahon’s most recent return to WWE didn’t exactly go to plan.
The star hadn’t been seen in WWE since the disastrous reception to his involvement in helping produce the 2022 men’s Royal Rumble match.
However, after more than a year away from television, the sounds of Shane McMahon’s theme rang out throughout SoFi stadium on April 2nd as The Miz and Snoop Dogg were having a co-host spat in the ring. Miz was upset that Snoop Dogg had forced him to wrestle Pat McAfee the previous evening, and in response, Snoop brought out McMahon as another impromptu opponent for Miz.
After thanking fans for their thunderous ovation, McMahon demanded that a referee be brought out to start the match. Disaster soon struck, however, as after running the ropes, McMahon attempted a leapfrog and fell to the ground, obviously in a great deal of pain.
As Shane was unable to continue, Snoop Dogg made the save, delivering punches to Miz before hitting a very memorable version of the People’s Elbow to end the bizarre segment.
Speaking in the post-WrestleMania media conference, Triple H revealed that like his father before him, Shane had torn his quad.
Shane McMahon Is Back In The Gym After Undergoing Surgery
Just three weeks after undergoing surgery for his torn quad, McMahon has taken to social media to post a workout video, giving thanks to those who are helping him train. The video shows McMahon and others engaging in an intense arm and upper body workout while his leg is still being stabilized by a brace.
Despite only appearing for the company once in 2022 and his Royal Rumble appearance barely lasting under six minutes, Shane McMahon earned an astounding $828,000 for his services.
