Shane McMahon appeared on a recent episode of the Opie Radio podcast and was asked about Vince McMahon pitching an incest storyline between Shane and sister Stephanie McMahon years ago.
Opie said Bruce talked about how he stepped in and said they shouldn't do the angle. Shane joked and stated:
"Well, my sister's hot. I don't know if I would've really minded that."
Shane added he had never heard about this idea, but assumed that Bruce was speaking the truth. He also spoke about the time where he was set to slap his mother on TV one time, but turned down the idea. Shane told Vince it was hard enough to hit him, and couldn't put hands on his own mother.
Prichard recalled how the discussion on the idea took up a whole day of creative talks.
"It was during the time when Stephanie was pregnant and Vince was trying to figure out if he could work that into a storyline. It was an entire Sunday, an entire day of my life that I will never get back.
That was always one of the things, whenever he'd [Vince] come up with crazy stuff like that. It would be like, 'Well, who's going to let Shane know?' The funny thing is, we were all on the phone going over everything and it was classic Vince. 'What if I was the father?' Then there's nervous laughter because no one thinks he's serious but then it became, 'Well, what if?'"
