Heartwarming / Shane McMahon

  • Upon winning Pro Wrestling Illustrated's "Rookie of the Year" award in 1999, Shane McMahon politely turned it down, saying "those things are for the boys, not for me". The 'boys' in this case is not demeaning or derogatory but refers to the wrestlers on the roster. In laymen's terms, he's basically saying he didn't think he deserved to be considered one of them out of respect for what they do every night as opposed to his occasional matches.
  • The visual of Shane with his father and then one-month-old son, Declan, in the opening for WrestleMania XX always makes this troper smile.
