Shane McMahon has recently overtaken his father and sister for the 'most overbearing McMahon' in WWE. He has run rampant on both RAW and SmackDown just like his father did at the end of the 1990s and beginning of the 2000s.

Vince's tyranny helped WWE finally put WCW out of business, essentially ending its last real competitor. While many other promotions did still exist between then and now, none posed as big a threat to WWE as WCW.

The feud between Mr. McMahon and Stone Cold Steve Austin essentially solidified the 'Evil Mr. McMahon' character in WWE. But even though the feud with Austin is probably the most popular and recognizable, the fact is that Vince has feuded with and battled with many other stars on screen.

From battling the likes of DX and Daniel Bryan, Vince has picked and chosen which Superstars to torment during various points in WWE history. Here are seven wrestlers who Vince has feuded with at different times.


#7 Daniel Bryan

The original
The original 'B+ player' storyline involved Mr. McMahon telling Bryan that he wasn't good enough to be WWE Champion.

Before the whole 'Kofi Kingston isn't good enough' run to WrestleMania 35, the first version of it happened between Daniel Bryan and Mr. McMahon prior to WrestleMania 30. After Bryan won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from John Cena at SummerSlam the year prior, it kicked off one of the most memorable storylines in WWE history.

Triple H was ringside for the match between Cena and Bryan but Pedigreed Bryan shortly after he had just won. It led to Randy Orton cashing in Money in the Bank on Bryan and taking the championship. Orton and Bryan would fight over the title for the following months, with Bryan getting screwed at every turn.

McMahon's whole argument was that Bryan was too small and didn't fit the mold of Superstars like Cena and Orton in order to represent the WWE as its champion. 'The Chairman' called Bryan 'a pretty good hand' and a 'B+ player'.

Stephanie and Triple H continued to push that narrative and the Authority was reformed with the power couple in charge. They even tried to get Bryan to wear a suit and shave his beard. Can you imagine Bryan without his signature beard? It all culminated with Bryan winning the belts in the main event of WrestleMania 30.
