-> ''"Wrestling/TerryFunk once said that Wrestling/VinceMcMahon is the most hardcore man in the business, because he had the financial protection of having all of the money [[AwesomeDearBoy and yet still felt the need to do some crazy spots]] unlike wrestlers who did it because they had to. With all due respect to the Funkster (who I love by proxy, as he is a hero to my boy Mick Foley), I humbly submit that [[ItRunsInTheFamily Vince's son is even crazier than him]]. That's because Shane [=McMahon=] wasn't a standard wrestler whenever he got into the ring: It would appear Shane-O-Mac [[{{Acrofatic}} wanted to be a high-flying luchador in another life]]. Not only did Shane stuff his arsenal with a multitude of aerial assault-based moves, he also looked money while he did it. [[HolyShitQuotient He makes a coast-to-coast missile dropkick look easy. He was willing to take a superplex off of a ladder onto a multitude of tables courtesy of Mr. Wrestlemania, Shawn Michaels himself.]] My only question is… WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY? Why did he feel the need to do that? Any of that? [[UnskilledButStrong He wasn't trained as a wrestler, so his body wasn't nearly as deadened to the sensation of aerial moves that regular guys might be.]] If he made a mistake and lost his life as a result, that would be a catastrophe not seen since the death of Wrestling/OwenHart. The son of the boss being let to play around with the big boys, and an accident happening.\\

Here's the thing: Shane is the only McMahon (with the possible exception of Linda, I think) [[EnsembleDarkhorse that the IWC almost universally loves]]. We would have loved him if the only thing he'd given us was [[Awesome/KingOfTheRing that match with Kurt Angle]]. Or one coast to coast dropkick. And the wrestlers would have respected him forever if all he'd done was one of the things he ended up doing. (Reports are [[HeartwarmingMoments/WWE he was given a standing ovation after the match with Angle]]. You know the one.) Instead, here was a millionaire kid who could have lived the rest of his life with a silver spoon in his mouth, but instead decided to [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething go out and show that he was gonna earn at least a small part of the massive fortune bequeathed to him]]. It was all completely needless, and he did it anyway. You know what? I'm starting to see why he wanted to [[StartMyOwn leave WWE to try his luck with his own fortune]]: [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat when you survive half the shit that he's put himself through]], [[NighInvulnerability you start feeling like you're damn-near invincible]]. And when it comes to Shane McMahon, I believe that he is, wholeheartedly."''
