Two decades have passed since Shane McMahon shockingly purchased World Championship Wrestling (WCW) from under the nose of his father, sports-entertainment mogul Vince McMahon — but business just picked up!
Following the recent controversial Royal Rumble
pay-per-view Premiere Event, Shane seemingly made an abrupt departure from his family empire.
Sources close to Shane — who, for the sake of anonymity, asked to be identified only as Kyle, Joey and Rodney — revealed that the estranged heir-apparent to the McMahon dynasty plans to usurp his father by reviving Vince’s arch-nemesis, WCW.
Shane surreptitiously purchased WCW in 2001, much to the chagrin of his father (who failed to read the fine print on the contract that specified which McMahon had obtained the company), and Shane never legally relinquished majority ownership.
To add insult to injury, Shane is reportedly partnering with some of his father’s most bitter enemies, including Ted Turner, Superstar Billy Graham, Nailz, H. H. Helmsley, and God.
The new WCW Monday Nitro premieres this Monday at 8 pm ET on Shane McMahon’s YouTube channel, recorded live from the former Raw Underground set in the basement of his one-room cabin deep in the Connecticut woods.
