• Shane McMahon Gets A New Non-Wrestling Job
Shane McMahon has not been used on WWE TV for a while, after losing a Steel Cage match to Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 37, because he got a new position outside of professional wrestling.
He has become the new Executive Chairman of a company called Ideanomics.
Here’s what the company’s website reads:
“We recently launched the transformation of Ideanomics as we vertically enter the exciting EV and hydrogen fuel cell space. We now have a powerful management team in place to ensure Ideanomics’ success.
I’m proud of what the new team has achieved in such a short amount of time and more importantly, I am thrilled for what’s yet to quickly come. I look forward to helping the company’s growth, vision, and momentum stay on track as we enter this new phase for Ideanomics.”
The WWF Attitude Era Legend, who is more of a stunt-man than an actual professional wrestler, is rumored to return to WWE in time for a storyline that will lead to a match at next year’s WrestleMania 38.
His father’s promotion needs all the Old School star power it could get and Shane is still in good shape.
