The McMahon family is probably the richest dysfunctional family television has ever seen. At the helm of the WWE, the McMahons are responsible for everything in the company. However, as it always has been, the four will never unanimously agree on anything. The family consists of the chairman of the board, Vince McMahon, his son Shane McMahon, daddy's little girl Stephanie McMahon, and the level-headed wife, Linda McMahon. As Stephanie McMahon's husband, both on the screen and off it, Triple H was a technical part of the family.
The McMahon family as a whole has never appeared in any SmackDown! game. All four family members, however, have appeared in the games.
