That’s not exactly praise. There have been all kinds of changes in the wrestling world this year but the biggest has been the change in regime in the WWE. After nearly forty years of Vince McMahon being in charge, there are new bosses at the helm, meaning the McMahons no longer have full authority. Now one former WWE star has something to say about a member of the family.

During a recent edition of his Cafe de Rene podcast, former WWE star Rene Dupree spoke about Shane McMahon, talking about how Shane’s matches would hurt the business. Dupree said that Shane only knows how to do stunts instead of wrestle a match, resulting in his stunts making it harder for wrestlers to get a reaction. Shane has been gone from WWE since this year’s Royal Rumble in January, allegedly due to backstage disagreements over how he would be presented.

Shane does do a lot of things in the ring. Check out some of his better moments:

Opinion: I do get the idea of what Dupree is saying, as Shane was often going to come in as a special attraction, do his stuff, and then go away again to wrestle in another few months. He was great at entertaining the fans, but there is a difference between being out there every week and being a special attraction. I’m not sure I would say Shane was bad for business, but I can see how he could be a problem.
