* TheWoobie: Out of {{kayfabe}}, people tend to get the impression that Shane has gotten a really raw deal. Despite being the most well-liked member of the [=McMahon=] family, with inside sources describing him as [[BenevolentBoss easily the best and easiest to work for]], Shane has basically been [[NoRespectGuy snubbed and ignored by his family]] and has been passed over as the heir to the company in favour of [[Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon Steph]] and [[Wrestling/TripleH her husband]], making it impossible to ignore the implication that Vince sees HHH as [[ParentalFavoritism the son he'd prefer to have had all along]]. Even WebVideo/WhatcultureWrestling's video of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th_HFcAod1c '10 things the WWE wants you to forget about Shane McMahon']] is less about times he's made a tit of himself or done something which makes the company look bad (like these videos usually are) and more about times he's been snubbed, abused, walked over, battered, ignored, been right about something that Vince was wrong about (such as buying [[UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship UFC]] before it took off), or made the company look bad ''by comparison to him.''

* TearJerker: Looking at his return purely from a {{kayfabe}} perspective. He wanted to put his family in check for their arrogance and genuinely change WWE for the better so badly that when he came back on his mission, he didn't flinch when he was told by Vince that the challenge he had to take to get his chance at control was a Hell in a Cell fight against the Undertaker at [=WrestleMania=]. No, he just realized he had to train hard to get ready and get his mind clicking as to what insane stunt he'd have to do to keep Taker down. Nor when Vince tried to disown him [[FleetingDemographicRule again]]; he just lost more respect for Vince and kept on moving. Nor when the fight between him and Undertaker saw him get chokeslammed onto steel steps and driven back-first through and into the cell panel he weakened with bolt cutters; he just kept telling Undertaker to BringIt and proceeded to fight him on the outside, finally getting him down onto the table in time to climb up to the top of the cell, which again, is higher than it used to be when guys were getting thrown off it, and became the first guy to ''voluntarily jump off it'' in [[DeathFromAbove trying to take Taker out]] because he was that strong in his convictions. But then Taker moved out of the way, and from there, it was over. Even so, he still kept telling Taker to BringIt. DefiantToTheEnd…[[DownerEnding even though the end was in abject failure and near death.]]

** 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. 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.

** And during their match at {{Wrestling/Wrestlemania}} 32, Shane routinely did a BringIt taunt.
* 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 Titantrons]].
