* TookALevelInBadass: While Shane was ''already'' a badass, since his return in 2016 he began to work as more of a ''wrestler,'' rather than just a SpotMonkey and GarbageWrestler. In particular, his matches against Wrestling/TheUndertaker at ''[=WrestleMania=] 32'' and Wrestling/AJStyles at ''[=WrestleMania=] 33'' demonstrated a whole new range of technical ability, including some impressive submissions and reversals.

** It says something about the McMahon's when the guy who willing jumped off the top of the titantron, thrown through two sheets of plexiglass, and did an elbow drop from at least 20 feet in the air, is the sane one

** To elaborate, "the spots with the glass" refers to Kurt attempting to Belly to Belly-suplex Shane through the panes of glass used for the set. Apparently, they hadn't gotten the right type of Plexiglass and the glass refused to break. Shane took a hellacious Belly to belly suplex and landed on his head. He told Kurt to suplex him again, and the glass broke. Then when they tried to do the same spot back out onto the ramp, the glass didn't break ''again''. Kurt reportedly tried to stop the match, but Shane (who was close friends with Kurt in real life) told him they'd never get the chance to do this again. Kurt eventually hurled Shane through headfirst, and that shot of Shane going through the glass the final time has become iconic, used for years as the very first shot of the ''Wrestling/SmackDown'' video package.

Apparently, they hadn't gotten the right type of Plexiglass glass[[note]]To sum up, instead of the safe, easy to break [[SoftGlass sugar glass]], they got plexiglass. The stuff used for bullet proof barriers and to stop hockey pucks from killing audience members. Wonder who got fired for that[[/note]] and the glass refused to break.

Shane Brandon [=McMahon=] is the eldest of Wrestling/VinceMcMahon's children, and like his sister Wrestling/{{Stephanie|McMahon}}, has been heavily involved with ProfessionalWrestling ever since young adulthood. He spent over twenty years with Wrestling/{{WWE}}, working his way up from ring crew to referee to wrestler to GM-figure.

* DeathFromAbove: Shane probably could've been a great cruiserweight in another life (in reality, he's a fairly big guy that likely wouldn't make weight) From elbow drops off the top rope onto the announcer's table, to [[UpToEleven coast-to-coast missile dropkicks]] to [[{{HSQ}} an elbow drop off the top of the titantron.]]
** Taken to its absolute with his performance at {{WrestleMania}} 32: [[spoiler:Jumping from top of the [[GimmickMatches Hell in A Cell]] cage - 20 feet! He missed his mark though, but goes to show how ballsy he can get.]] This is five feet higher than the one that almost killed MickFoley and Shane was 13 years older when he did it.

* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Harming Linda is his biggest BerserkButton. Case in point in one storyline when Stephanie and Linda exchange slaps, and then Triple H tries to put the Pedigree on Linda. Shane ''immediately'' attacked Triple H, though they were both on the same side against her.

* GoodCounterpart: Behind the scenes, Vince is still booking the show. Except now he's appealing to the hardcore fans--while pretending that Shane is behind it all. (Wrestling.)\\\
It's a brilliant move: They decided to take a risk in 2016 and change the direction of the show, so if for some reason this doesn't work, on TV at least they can blame it on Shane.

** Then came his Hell in A Cell match against Wrestling/TheUndertaker at Wrestling/WrestleMania 32 where he tried to do his elbow drop through the announcers table onto Taker, ''willingly doing it from the top of the 20ft cell''. But as Shane jumped, Taker managed to roll out of the way, causing Shane to crash onto the table, literally silencing the '''100,000+''' in attendance who was just cheering for him as he made the jump, enough to make them sincerely worry he might have gone too far and killed himself as the refs and medics went to check him out. Even '''[[TheStoic THE UNDERTAKER]]''' was in shock at this till Shane finally showed signs of life and even gave him two "[[BringIt Bring it on]]" hand gestures, even knowing he was clearly out of it.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He reprimanded ''[=SmackDown=]'' general Daniel Bryan for [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech "speaking his peace" ]] toward The Miz and then advising him to apologize to the latter. Daniel Bryan agreed, not before calling out Shane on this trope.

* DeathOrGloryAttack: An ''alarming'' amount of Shane's offense. He's lost as many matches (if not more) as he's won with his propensity for base jumping from the tallest structure available in the arena. Predictably, if someone can dodge and does, Shane goes splat.

** ''Don't talk about his children.'' [[Wrestling/KevinSteen Kevin Owens]] made the mistake of doing it - after being warned - and Shane beat the crap out of him.
