Maven recently took to his YouTube page to discuss his time working with Shane McMahon in WWE.
According to the former WWE Tough Enough winner, Shane McMahon felt like one of the boys backstage. Additionally, Maven opined on Shane having to earn his spot in WWE, and more.
You can check out some highlights below:
On his experiences with Shane: “We would go out and Shane would find himself out in a social environment with us. He never felt really like Vince’s son. He actually felt like one of the boys. Shane would pull me aside many times and tell me, ‘Hey, man, I think you can do big things. I think you can do this or that. I liked the way you did this.’”
On Shane having to earn his spot in WWE: “A lot of people don’t realize that when Shane got into the business, his dad made him earn it. Most people look at Shane and think that he had everything handed to him. That could not be further from the truth. When Shane broke in, Shane was on ring crew. Shane was putting the ring together for live events. Taking it down at the end of live events.
“Shane was the first one to get to places to learn how to take bumps, to learn how to actually do what we did in the ring. This man’s put the work in. I have nothing but respect for Shane. I like Shane a lot. Hope he’s doing well.”
