** And during their match at ''{{Wrestling/Wrestlemania}} 32'', Shane routinely did a BringIt taunt, most notably two times ''after'' jumping off the cell and crashing onto the announcers table.

** He talks about an incident with the Undertaker on Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin's podcast. Shane is well known for "working stiff" (really hitting or slamming people, a more old-school style of wrestling), and during his match with Taker at Wrestlemania 32, he got in a really good one, stunning the Deadman. Taker's response was to shake his head, murmur "fuckin' kid", and hit Shane so hard he swears he heard birdies (like in a Road Runner cartoon).

** WrestleMania 32, he managed to top the Titantron spot, how? He tries to drop the elbow on Wrestling/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.

** 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.

** NarmCharm: His "Shane-O Shuffle" is admittedly kind of dumb, and his facial expressions are hilarious, but you can't help but love it. All three of his kids performing it for Wrestlemania 32 with him was ridiculously cute.

** HilariousInHindsight, because according to many of the veterans, Shane's a little wild with his punches and will legitimately (and accidentally) hit people.

* CatharsisFactor: For people who is sick of [[WellDoneSonGuy Shane's mistreatment]] or have to deal with AbusiveParents, seeing him [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown utterly]] [[CurbStompBattle destroying]] his father Vince at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania X-Seven'' can be ''very'' cathartic.

** His signature SpanishAnnouncersTable spot - a huge elbow drop off the top rope, crashing through said table. His hangtime is ''epic''.

* FunnyMoments:
** Stephanie tells a story on [[WebVideo/UpUpDownDown UUDD]] that Shane is an awful gamer and when he lost at Nintendo, he took a hammer to his console. [[HairTriggerTemper Several times.]]
** His ScrewThisImOuttaHere reaction to the "Vince talks to God" segment - hilariously underplayed and perfect.

* 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.
