Shane O’Mac is that badass commissioner of SmackDown Live who has survived jumping off a Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania. McMahon also survived a very real-life helicopter crash Wednesday morning near Gilgo Beach, New York. Shane definitely has more lives than a cat. He’s a risk-taker, a born businessman, and a certified bad boy of the wrestling ring.
Shane was born into pro wrestling royalty. He’s the son of legendary promoter Vince McMahon, who has ruled the world of wrestling with an iron fist for over three decades. Shane has since followed in his father’s footsteps. He’s currently a minority owner of WWE, as well as vice-chairman of Wecast Holdings Inc. This cat must be rolling in the dough. But how much money does Shane O’Mac have stacked?
Shane McMahon net worth as of 2019: $35 Million
McMahon’s net worth rolls in at a cool $35 million. Shane is a pro wrestling personality and business mogul. He takes after his father for her economic ambitions and ass-kicking nature. Shane can get it done in the ring better than most in the WWE lockerroom. He took The Undertaker to the limit at WrestleMania 32. He’s a former WWE European Champion. He’s practically done it all. Let’s take a look at Shane’s sparkling road of riches…
1989 – 2001
Shane began his career in the WWE as a referee by the name of Shane Stevens. He later moved onto sales, marketing, and international business development for his father’s wrestling company. In 1998, McMahon made his television debut as a pro wrestling personality. Shane assisted his villainous father in his feud against Stone Cold Steve Austin.
In February 1999, McMahon captured the WWE European Championship from X-Pac. They met in a rematch at WrestleMania XV, which McMahon won. Shane never lost the title, as he wanted to retire as an “undefeated champion.” McMahon gave his title to fellow Corporation member Mideon as a gift of goodwill.
McMahon’s role in the ring only increased. He fought main even stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin, Big Show, and Kurt Angle. He also performed insane stunts, dropping from incredible in hardcore matches, such as the one against Steve Blackman at SummerSlam 2000. At the time, Shane was considered the WWE Hardcore Champion.
2001 – 2009
In 2001, Shane shifted his focus to feuding with his father. He defeated Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 17 in a street fight. During this time, he was revealed as the storyline owner of WCW. Shane O’Mac led “The Alliance” of former WCW and ECW wrestlers against his father’s WWE.
After The Invasion story faded out, Shane’s role on television dissipated. He returned in 2003 to feud with Kane. In 2006, he rejoined forces with his father to take on a reformed, middle-aged version of D-Generation X.
In 2007, Shane assisted his father in his feud against ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley. McMahon even helped his father win the ECW Championship. Two years later, Shane O’Mac returned as a good guy. McMahon feuded with Randy Orton and his legacy stable.

2009 – Present
In October 2009, Shane announced his resignation from the WWE. He spent the next seven years building up his business resume. On August 3, 2010, Shane was awarded the title of CEO of China Broadband Inc., a company that provides cable broadband, digital, and analog related services in Shandong province of China. That year, McMahon also secured a role as the CEO of You On Demand, which is the very first VOD & Pay-Per-View service in China.
In 2013, Shane stepped down from her role as CEO of You On Demand. However, he remains as Vice Chairman of the Board.
In 2016, McMahon returned to the WWE in a big way. He fought the legendary Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 in a Hell in a Cell match. Shane wanted to show the world just how much WWE means to him. So, he shocked the fans once more and jumped off the cell. Undertaker moved out of the way right in the nick of time, but Shane has left a memory in the minds of many fans that will last a lifetime.
As a result of the second WWE brand extension, Shane was named as the commissioner of SmackDown Live. He calls his brand the “land of opportunity,” and he’s not afraid to fight it out with the talent. Just ask AJ Styles…
Shane is one kickass commissioner who has earned his keep in the WWE. McMahon fought hard in the business world and the wrestling ring. He’s earned a fortune in his lifetime, and the money just keeps rollin’ in.
Professional Wrestler Shane McMahon’s comeback in the WWE has been nothing but successfull and this looks to continue his farewell run at his father’s company.
