* BaseBreakingCharacter: He's very much popular with the casual audience but among the IWC, he can be a much more divisive figure. For those who love him, he's the most talented [=McMahon=] out of his entire family who's willing to put his life on the line for the business and entertain the fans with high-risk moves. Also, when push comes to shove, his fans would much rather see Shane inherit the business from Vince rather than allow Triple H and Stephanie to take over. To his detractors, however, he's just another spoiled [=McMahon=} beneficiary of nepotism whose only claims to fame are high-risk spots in matches and needs to stay off of television every bit as much as the rest of his family. And even though Shane tends to lose most of his feuds with active wrestlers and puts practically all of them over, his critics still accuse Shane of being needlessly inserted into feuds with more active wrestlers like AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, etc. and get annoyed with how Shane is booked to look like he belongs in the ring with them.

** Not only jumping off Hell In A Cell through a table, but jumping off Hell In A Cell through a table as a 46-year-old non-career wrestler who hadn't been in a match in eight years.

** His match with Wrestling/AJStyles at ''Wrestlemania'' 33. His feats included reversing a springboard 450° splash into a triangle choke, reversing a Phenomenal Forearm into a DDT, and busting out a shooting star press.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Surprisingly, considering he's a [=McMahon=]. The guy gets cheers and chants even when he's just showing up for his father's off the air birthday celebration. Might have something to do with SiblingYinYang, but it probably has more to do with his willingness to be [[HolyShitQuotient thrown through glass and jump off both Titantrons and the Cell]].

** WrestleMania 32, he managed to top the Titantron spot, how? He tries to drop the elbow on TheUndertaker through the SpanishAnnouncersTable. '''''[[https://youtu.be/bWI2l4ZbdA4 From on top of the cell]].''''' To put this in perspective, one of the iconic Undertaker moments, and indeed one of WWE's iconic moments, Wrestling/MickFoley is thrown from atop the cell to crash to the table below. Shane (along with the rest of us) has probably seen this footage about a million times. He's the first man to ''consciously'' make the decision to jump from atop the cell. And keep in mind Shane's not a regular in-ring performer and at this point, is in his mid-40s and hasn't wrestled a match in about seven years. Furthermore, the new cell being used in this era is ''several feet taller'' than the one that was used in the old Hell in a Cell classics, including Undertaker throwing Foley off of it. Yet Shane ''still'' voluntarily jumped. Far from popping at the spot, the crowd of over '''100,000''' actually ''quieted'' presumably because they were probably wondering if Shane had finally managed to kill himself.

** Many fans who feel less than optimistic about the direction of the WWE since he's stepped away actually regard him as the "only good [=McMahon=]", in part due to his track record in and out of the ring during his tenure. It's gotten to the point where upon his stepping down as CEO of the Chinese broadband company he's been with since then[[note]]and despite the fact that he's still a presiding officer there[[/note]], people are suggesting he return during the new regime storyline and play said role on-screen. When they finally got their wish on February 22, 2016, the fans absolutely exploded.

*** Even as he was on top of the cage, [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt the crowd didn't want to believe that he would do it]]. Then he made the Sign of the Cross. [[MyGodYouAreSerious Note the crowd's reaction]] [[MassOhCrap immediatly after doing so]]...
