Shane McMahon’s recovery from a torn quad is progressing at an impressive pace after getting hurt in a surprise match at WrestleMania 39 in April against The Miz. Shane attempted a leapfrog and then tried to drop down, but his leg gave out during the move, and he couldn’t continue the match.
In a talk with the Developmentally Speaking podcast, Shane’s son Declan McMahon said his dad is doing really well in getting better from his injury. Declan wants Shane to return to wrestling soon and be even better than before.
His rehab’s going very, very well. He’s gotten back to like jogging. He’s squatting. He’s starting to work out again. It’s getting kind of difficult for him to run side to side, but his rehab is going really, really well. He’s making phenomenal progress. The doctor said all the time that he’s healing quicker than they thought and, you know, when he tore it, he completely tore his quad tendon. So that’s a very long, hard recovery, but he’s been crushing rehab. He’s been doing his thing. He’ll hopefully get back soon.
Obviously you want to see your dad be able to do what they love, right? My dad loves wrestling second to none. He truly cares for the business. But not only for the business, he truly wants to just put on a show for the fans. Because the fans show him so much love and it’s so rewarding for a lot of those guys to just give to those fans who came to see them. So hopefully he comes back better than ever. And I think, you know, his rehab is going great.
Declan McMahon is the son of Shane McMahon and Marissa Mazzola-McMahon. He is currently a student at Indiana University, where he is a member of the football team. He redshirted his freshman season in 2022 and is currently a redshirt freshman running back.
