Shane said that he wanted to use the expertise he had built up and use that knowledge outside WWE. He also added that wanting to spend more time with his kids at home was also a big factor in his decision to step away, adding that he got the chance to do things like coach his son's peewee football team:
So it’s like I’ve had 15 different jobs over the tenure of my career, and you learn so much, whether I was working inside the company having to be all under one umbrella. So taking that knowledge, wanted to go outside for a little while. Also, it was very important for me and one of the bigger driving factors was, I have three boys and make sure that I was their life a little bit. I wanted more time with them, and my leave allowed me to invest time, which is the most valuable commodity as you’re aware. Everything is so demanding, your time is so demanding. So I was I was able to coach all my son’s peewee football, until they got to high school. H/T: WrestleTalk
