Since returning on a Monday Night Raw show in Detroit back in February, Shane McMahon has set about becoming a part of the WWE furniture once again after a seven-year absence.
In feuding with his long-time friend The Undertaker, throwing himself off a 30-foot high cage at WrestleMania 32 and becoming the co-general manager of Raw, the son of Vince McMahon has certainly made his mark.
Speaking in an extensive interview with Mick Foley on the WWE Network on Monday night, however, Shane O-Mac went into some detail on just why he felt the need to leave the organisation in the first place back in 2009.

Shane began by making reference to the struggle he had getting his ideas across whilst working under his father in the first decade of the 21st century:
"I think with any parent-child relationship it is tough," he told Foley. "Especially with the older guard allowing the new guard to flesh those ideas out and try them and go for it, because they're so guarded against it.

"It stopped being a collaboration and it stopped being fun," he continued when asked to sum up exactly why he quit.
Simply put, he recognised his relationship with Vince was becoming seriously strained, and he didn't want it to spill over into family life.
"The WWE defines my father and I wasn't going to allow a deteriorating business relationship to affect our personal lives, and that is exactly what was happening.
"So I decided, you know what, I'm not going to do this, I love you too much. And I decided to leave."
At the time of his departure, Shane didn't go into specifics, saying in an official statement that it was time to "pursue outside ventures." Nevertheless, speculation about a rift with his father and sister has been doing the rounds for years.
However, they do say time is a great healer and, in returning to the WWE this year, Shane appears to be enjoying a good working relationship with Vince once again.
His comeback has been one of the big plus points of 2016 so far and the WWE Universe will be hoping that things can stay amicable behind the scenes so he can continue putting together exciting matches on a weekly basis.
Shane's latest decision came last night with the announcement that Seth Rollins will take on Roman Reigns for the World Heavyweight Title at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
