Shane McMahon was on Corey Graves’ “After The Bell” podcast to discuss a wide range of topics.
During the interview, he was asked why he came back to WWE in 2016. Here is what he had to say (H/T to WrestlingNews.co):
“I came back for my kids. This goes back to WrestleMania 32 with Undertaker in the Hell in the Cell. My boys had been saying to me for a couple years, hey dad, did you ever think about getting back in there because my sons never saw me live. They saw me via DVD or Youtube. So to be a real-life superhero for your kids is a powerful thing. That was the opportunity that was presented to me at the biggest stage of them all against arguably the most iconic and singular talent ever created, The Undertaker, who is also my longest-running friend in the business. That was tough to pass up. We didn’t know where it was going to go. We thought it would be one and done. I had my boys come out on stage and that was an amazing moment. I was euphoric watching them and so proud that I had to snap myself out of it.”
