WWE's Shane McMahon resigns
Leaves family business to pursue outside ventures
"It has been an incredible experience to help build WWE into a global phenomenon," the young McMahon said. "However, having been associated with this organization for the majority of my life, I feel this is the opportune time in my career to pursue outside ventures."
His mother, Linda, recently gave up the CEO post to run for a U.S. Senate seat in Connecticut.
"Even though I am personally saddened by Shane's decision to leave the company, I am proud of the enormous contributions he has made," said Vince McMahon.
