Shane McMahon, the son of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, is known for his daredevil stunts and high-profile matches in WWE. He has been involved in some of the most memorable moments in WWE history, such as jumping off the Hell in a Cell Cage, crashing through a glass window, and facing legends like The Undertaker, Kurt Angle, and AJ Styles.

However, Shane McMahon is no longer a full-time wrestler and only makes occasional appearances for WWE. As a matter of fact, he only wrestled one match in 2022 when he entered the men’s Royal Rumble match as a surprise entrant.

Shane entered the match in the number 28 spot and lasted about 5 minutes before he was eliminated by the eventual winner Brock Lesnar.

According to a recent report by Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, Shane McMahon earned an insane amount of money for that one appearance in 2022. The report revealed that Shane’s talent pay for 2022 was $827,559, which was disclosed in a proxy statement since he is a family member. This means that Shane made more money than some of the regular WWE Superstars who wrestled throughout the year.


“Shane McMahon’s talent pay for 2022 was $827,559, disclosed in the proxy because he’s a family member. This was already disclosed earlier this year in another filing when Vince returned to the company. Shane had 1 match in 2022, as part of the Royal Rumble match.”

Shane McMahon returned to WWE at WrestleMania 39 where he faced off against The Miz in an impromptu match. However, his comeback was marred by an unfortunate injury, as he tore his quad during the match and had to be replaced by Snoop Dogg.

Given his recent injury, it looks like he will be out of action for several months. Until then, stay tuned to Ringside News as we bring you similar stories.
