Shane McMahon is gone from WWE, according to multiple reports.
On Wednesday, Ringside News reported that McMahon had been “quietly let go” by the company. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer confirmed McMahon’s departure with plans for McMahon at Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania dropped.
The 52-year old returned during Saturday’s Royal Rumble match and was scheduled to participate at Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania 38.
PWinsider.com added that some believed McMahon took the brunt of the heat over how poorly the men’s Royal Rumble was received as McMahon was involved in the match layout.
McMahon previously left WWE in 2009 to work on outside ventures and returned in February 2016 to set up a match with The Undertaker at that year’s WrestleMania at AT&T Stadium. McMahon was only under a talent deal over the past several years where he wrestled occasionally and had a stint as the General Manager of SmackDown alongside Daniel Bryan.
