"My sister is hot" - Multiple controversial comments Shane McMahon made about WWE Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon
Shane and Stephanie McMahon worked closely with their father, Vince McMahon, in WWE for several years. The two also participated in several storylines together on-screen. They even teamed up in a match against The Big Show and Lita in July 2000.
While he remains a minority owner, Shane McMahon is no longer working in WWE. Meanwhile, his sister has taken over the positions of Chairwoman and Co-CEO following their father's retirement earlier this year.
Over the past few years, Shane has spoken in interviews about his relationship with his sister, among other topics. The former SmackDown Tag Team Champion also made controversial statements about The Billion Dollar Princess.
Here are multiple controversial comments Shane McMahon made about WWE Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon.
Shane McMahon: My sister is hot
In 2003, Stephanie McMahon tied the knot with Triple H after dating for about three years. Nearly two years later, The Billion Dollar Princess became pregnant with the couple's first daughter. Her father, Vince McMahon, then pitched a storyline idea in which he would reveal himself as the father of Stephanie's child.
When Stephanie rejected her father's pitch, Vince suggested that Shane could be the one to claim he was the father of his sister's child. Again, The Billion Dollar Princess immediately refused.
In an old interview, Shane was asked about his father's controversial storyline idea. Surprisingly, the 52-year-old stated that he would not have minded doing it because his sister is "hot."
"Well, my sister's hot. I don't know if I would've really minded that," he said. (H/T: The Sun)
Speaking about the scrapped storyline in an old WWE documentary, Stephanie explained that although things like that sometimes happen in real life, she felt it was "too much" for her to do on television.

In 1999, Shane and Stephanie McMahon appeared on TSN's Off The Record for the first time. During the interview, host Michael Landsburg asked The Billion Dollar Princess if she could do what Debra does, which he elaborated as "puppies."
While Stephanie responded by quoting her father that she was not "built like Debra," her brother had a more descriptive answer to Landsburg's question.
"You [Stephanie] have smaller puppies, that's all," he said. (17:43 - 17:47)
Stephanie seemed surprised by her brother's comments and told him that he did not have to elaborate. The Billion Dollar Princess later had her breasts enlarged.
Shane McMahon on Stephanie McMahon's relationship with Triple H
While working together on a storyline in 1999, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H developed feelings for each other. The two then started dating in 2000 and married three years later.
When Stephanie and Triple H became a couple, rumors suggested that Shane was unhappy with their relationship and stood against it. Speaking to WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley on the Tell All podcast, Shane addressed the rumors and commented on the controversial issue.
"At first it was... as long as they're gonna be happy that's all I really care about. You know, it was more old school back in the day, you know, especially the boss' daughter, you don't ever date a talent at that point, because there was separation. At that time it was church and state, or office and the boys, if you will. So there's a lot of old school stuff in there. The thing that didn't sit well with me is that it was kept from me for a while, so that didn't feel good," he said. (44:13 - 44:49)
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H have been married for 19 years. They now have three daughters together.

However, Shane had a somewhat controversial answer to Foley's question about his relationship with his sister's husband, Triple H.
"That didn't change either. My relationship with Paul? He makes my sister happy and I'm very happy he does that," he said. (43:33 - 43:44)
Foley noted that Shane's answer seemed "evasive" and asked the former SmackDown Commissioner if he and Triple H had any contention, which Shane denied. Vince McMahon's son also denied having an "adversarial" relationship with The Game.
Shane McMahon on being jealous of Stephanie McMahon's progression in WWE
In 2010, Shane McMahon left WWE to pursue other options. He remained away from the company for about six years before returning in 2016. During these six years, Shane's sister Stephanie became one of the leaders of their father's company.
On the Tell All podcast in 2017, Mick Foley asked Shane if he felt jealous of Stephanie for progressing in the business or regretted being away for a long time.
"Zero!" Shane responded. (45:13 - 45:14)
While Shane left the company again earlier this year, his sister is now the WWE Chairwoman and Co-CEO alongside Nick Khan. Meanwhile, Triple H has become the new WWE Chief Content Officer.
