The Los Angeles Times recently interviewed Shane McMahon, former WWE on-screen star and executive vice president of global media, and asked about the son of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon about his decision to leave WWE January 1, 2010.
“It was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make,” McMahon told the business section of LATimes.com. He added, “I didn’t want to wake up when I was 70 and say, ‘I should have done that.'” McMahon described his decision to tell his father that he wanted to leave as “brutal,” adding that a year-and-a-half later, there still is tension between them. “It’s still hard,” he said about their relationship.
