Say the words "Montreal Screwjob" to a wrestling fan and they'll immediately know what you're talking about. But that fateful night also gave birth to Mr. McMahon and the character has been a fixture in WWE storylines ever since. All throughout television, be it the Hatfields, McCoys, Ewings, even the Bundys; there has been no greater dysfunctional family than the McMahons. For almost twenty years, we have seen just how crazy the wrestling dynasty is.
Just like Dynasty, The Young and the Restless, and Soap, the WWE has played out like the ultimate male soap opera for years now. A megalomaniacal, egomaniacal business owner, his ungrateful son known for taking insane risks, his daughter, equally as megalomaniacal as daddy is, the wife who steps into things when it is absolutely necessary and finally the son-in-law who "drugged" daddy's little girl into marrying her. Combine their own family drama and multiply it to the tenth degree when you toss in all the Superstars that the McMahons have used for their own devices over the years and the high levels of drama is what has kept Raw the longest running episodic series on TV.
Generally speaking, whenever a McMahon is involved, whether they're going over or not, the feud is always a memorable one. Here are the top 15 McMahon family feuds.
15 Chris Jericho and Stephanie
14 A McMahon in Every Corner
13 Kane and Shane
12 Donald Trump and Vince
11 Hulk Hogan and Vince
10 Randy Orton and The McMahon Family
9 Bret Hart and Vince
8 D-Generation X and Vince/Shane
7 Triple H and Vince
6 Stephanie and Vince
5 Shane and Vince
4 Kurt Angle and Shane
3 Eric Bischoff and Vince
2 Daniel Bryan and The Authority
1 Stone Cold Steve Austin and Vince
It's not number one just because it was the hottest angle and driving force of The Attitude Era and minted both Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mr. McMahon as two of the greatest stars ever. It's number one more so because it was one of a kind feud and inspired many face vs. corporate oppressors afterwards. The ornery Texas Rattlesnake represented the common man, while Vince of course was the head of the evil corporation not allowing Austin to raise hell. Meanwhile, in trying to keep Austin from raising hell, that's exactly what he did - the Stunner at MSG, the kidnapping, total vehicular destruction, and even the destruction of the old Titantron. Stone Cold opened up dozens upon dozens of cans of whoop ass on his way to Hall of Fame glory and becoming the biggest star in wrestling history.
