Shane McMahon ‘quietly let go’ from WWE

Nobody is safe.

Just days after he resurfaced on television, WWE has parted ways with Shane McMahon, son of WWE CEO Vince McMahon. The news was first broken by Ringside News, and later confirmed by Dave Meltzer. While Shane has held various titles over the course of his long tenure with WWE, he most recently served as an on-screen talent and backstage producer.

Shane recently returned to television at last Saturday’s Royal Rumble event, where he made it to the final four of the men’s Royal Rumble match. Rumors pointed to Shane entering a program with Seth Rollins that would culminate at WrestleMania. However, Shane was reportedly responsible for producing the Rumble matches, which were widely panned.

It is unknown if Shane was let go only because of the poor response to the Royal Rumble, but from the outside, it certainly does appear that he is being scapegoated for the show’s negative reception.

WWE has ruthlessly shed dozens of employees from their payroll over the last year or so, and with the release of the Chairman’s son, it appears that truly, nobody is safe.
