Report: Shane McMahon Not Expected To Return To WWE

No Shane McMahon return to WWE

Vince McMahon's retirement from WWE will reportedly not pave the way for Shane McMahon to return to the company, with Wade Keller of PWTorch noting there is still a divide between Shane and his sister Stephanie McMahon, who is the new Co-CEO alongside Nick Khan. 

"I'm told Stephanie definitely has ideas. This is a job she has coveted since she was barely a teenager, maybe a preteen. I've told the story quite a bit over the years [about] Stephanie, and Jerry Jarrett told me the story on record that he was having dinner with the McMahon's and either he or someone at the table said, 'Shane, you know, someday you're going to be running the company like your dad.' And Stephanie was years younger than Shane, established her Alpha attitude. She jumped in and said, 'Uh uh, daddy's little girl is going to be the one running the show someday not Shane.' That rivalry has been there. The divide between those two, I'm told, is still there. And there is no reconciliation or power sibling team expected," Keller said.

"It's like, you know, the siblings hang out, they yell, they battle and they double cross each other, but they hang out. And they talk. And the impression I'm getting is that's not happening with Shane and Stephanie. So, by the way, don't expect Shane to enter the picture here unless he just, you know, goes rogue and just shows up at a show." 

Shane has been out of WWE since the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January. McMahon was heavily involved in putting the widely-panned Men's Royal Rumble Match together but his behaviour backstage resulted in Vince McMahon letting his son go.
