Shane McMahon first appeared in WWE as a regular on-screen act during the buildup to WrestleMania 14 in 1998. He portrayed the role of one of several WWE executives who were inking a deal with Mike Tyson for an appearance at The Show of Shows.

McMahon went on to become a mainstay on WWE TV, and he had a remarkable first few years in this role. His WrestleMania 17 Street Fight against his father Vince McMahon was praised by many fans at the time. Shane later became a hated heel when he went toe-to-toe with Vince during the "WWE vs. The Alliance" angle.

Shane McMahon and WWE parted ways in late 2009. He eventually returned to the company in 2016, and he faced The Undertaker in a Hell In A Cell Match at WrestleMania 32. Shane later took on the role of a babyface authority figure, but he turned heel on the road to WrestleMania 35 in 2019. Shane's heel run saw him defeat top stars like The Miz and Roman Reigns.

Shane was written off TV after his loss to Kevin Owens in a Career vs. Career Ladder Match on SmackDown's FOX premiere in October 2019. He later made brief appearances for WWE in 2020 during the short-lived RAW Underground weekly segment on the red brand.

During his 2021 feud with Strowman, Shane-O-Mac made fun of the giant's intelligence, and the WWE Universe wasn't too impressed with the angle. As a result, many fans were pleased when Strowman defeated McMahon and seemingly ended this chapter of his on-screen career.
