• Reason Behind WWF Using Shane McMahon As A Commentator During The Attitude Era

During an episode of Something To Wrestle With podcast, Old School WWF Veteran Bruce Prichard (a.k.a Brother Love) talked about WWF using Shane McMahon as a commentator during the Attitude Era.

Bruce explained the reasoning behind it:

“Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn were behind that because they wanted a young and different look, Shane McMahon was coming into the business.

Shane was young and had the look that they were looking for. Young, good-looking guy who grew up in the business; third generation, so why not? Give him a shot man.

It was in his genes and in his DNA, so it was time to teach Shane McMahon that aspect of the business.

Shane was doing play by play, he did color and analysis. There was a lot of training that he did for this, but it was a new experiment to get Shane McMahon out there for the audience.”
