Having burst back into the limelight, it is clear that the 46-year-old is just as pumped as the WWE Universe. That video isn't any sort of acting, it is genuine emotion from a man who clearly missed the business.

Shane McMahon returning to lay down a challenge to The Undertaker and his father - the WWE boss will rescind control of RAW to Shane if he defeats the Deadman on April 3 - most certainly did that.
It remains to be seen whether Shane can continue the feel good factor over the next few weeks and into the AT&T Stadium show, but judging by his rapport with the fans he stands a very good chance.
