With Shane McMahon’s children being seen on WWE television a few times over the past year, fans are preparing themselves for the day that a new generation of McMahons become involved in Raw and SmackDown storylines.
Shane McMahon, the commissioner of SmackDown Live, is married to Marissa Mazzola, and they have three children together. While we didn’t know much about them a few years ago, the young McMahons have been seen with their father at several WWE events since Shane made his return in 2016.
Here’s what you need to know about Shane McMahon’s three children.
1. They Range in Age From Seven to 13
Shane McMahon’s sons range in age from seven to 13 years old.
His oldest son, Declan James, was born on February 13th, 2004 and is now 13 years old. His middle child is Kenyon Jesse, who was born on March 26th, 2006 and is now 11 years old. Finally, his youngest son is Rogan Henry, who was born on January 20th, 2010 and is now seven years old.
While Shane McMahon has three boys, Shane’s sister Stephanie McMahon has three girls: Aurora Rose, Murphy Claire, and Vaughn Evelyn.
2. They Accompanied Their Father to the Ring at WrestleMania 32
The first time most WWE viewers were introduced to Shane McMahon’s sons was at WrestleMania 32.
That year, Shane McMahon had a match against The Undertaker, and he was accompanied to the ring by his three sons. Shane first entered and did his signature dance, and he was shortly followed by his kids, all of whom were wearing identical jerseys, sneakers, and who proceeded to do their best impression of their father’s dance moves.
During this storyline with Shane McMahon, it was repeatedly stated that the future of the WWE was being threatened with Shane’s match, and bringing out Shane’s kids served to heighten the stake. Leading up to the match, Vince McMahon told Shane that his children would have to see their father fail at WrestleMania.
After accompanying their father to the ring, Shane’s kids watched the match with their mother, Marissa Mazzola, and their grandmother, Linda McMahon.
3. His Son Was Seen Chanting ‘Bulls—!’ at an NXT Event Last Year
Shane McMahon’s son drew some attention last year when he joined in on a “this is bulls—!” chant at an NXT event.
This was at NXT TakeOver: Dallas in April 2016. Declan James was seen joining in on the chant while sitting with his grandmother, Linda McMahon, and his aunt, Stephanie McMahon. Declan and the crowd had this reaction to a match between Finn Balor and Samoa Joe being stopped when Joe had a bloody eye, according to What Culture. Declan did not, however, join in on a “f— PG!” chant that broke out a few moments later.
Video of Declan chanting at the NXT event was posted on YouTube, but it has since been removed, as the WWE has blocked it on copyright grounds.
4. Randy Orton Consoled Them When Shane Was Legitimately Injured at ‘Survivor Series’
At Survivor Series 2016, Shane McMahon was legitimately injured during a match with Roman Reigns, and after this happened, Randy Orton broke character to console Shane’s wife and children.
Orton later said on Twitter that because he’s a father himself, he knows what it’s like to have your kids there when something goes wrong in the ring.
Orton revealed in an interview with CBS Sports in December exactly what he told Shane’s kids.
“I told them their dad was a champ and he was a tough dude, and he’s fine, and it’s just part of what we’re doing right now, kids,” Orton explained. “Don’t worry about it. And they smiled and the wife was happy, and everything was cool.”
5. They Recently Visited the White House
Shane McMahon’s children recently had the unique experience of visiting the Oval Office and spending time with the president of the United States.
That’s because their grandmother, Linda McMahon, was being confirmed as administrator of the Small Business Administration. Vince, Stephanie and Shane McMahon joined Linda in the White House for the swearing in, and both Shane and Stephanie’s children were there as well.
President Donald Trump, of course, is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, and at WrestleMania 23, he shaved Vince McMahon’s head in front of 80,000 WWE fans. When the McMahon family took a photo with the president in the Oval Office, they had Stephanie McMahon’s children hold up a picture of Trump at WrestleMania.
