In an interview with The New York Times, Shays listed "some of the more distasteful episodes" in the history of WWE, including husband Vince McMahon's penchant for dropping his trousers and underwear in the middle of the ring and having wrestlers kiss his bare buttocks. It is known as the "Mr. McMahon Kiss My Ass Club."
"You're clearly not a social conservative when you do those things, and you're clearly not a fiscal conservative when you spend $50 million so wastefully," Shays says.
McMahon created the "Mr. McMahon Kiss My Ass Club" following the collapse of The Alliance in November 2001, which consisted of various WWE personalities being ordered to kiss his posterior under the threat of suspension or termination. Members of this exclusive club include William Regal, Jim Ross, Shawn Michaels, Shane McMahon, Mick Foley and Hornswoggle. Hornswoggle, however, did not actually kiss McMahon's derriere, instead biting him. The WWE Chairman ruled Hornswoggle as an official club member since his lips came in contact with his backside.
The club even spawned its own online cartoon, "Mr. McMahon's Kiss My Ass Club – The WWE's Most Valuable Asset. The cartoon series, produced by Animax Entertainment, debuted on WWE.com in November 2006. The cartoon was later canceled as part of a settlement between WWE and Cartoon Network due to the show's similarities with Cartoon Network program Assy McGee.
