He was raised as Vinnie Lupton and spent the majority of his childhood living with his mother, Victoria 'Vicki' Lupton and a string of stepfathers.
He claimed that one of his stepfathers, Leo Lupton, used to beat his mother and attacked McMahon when he tried to protect her. He said, "It is unfortunate that he died before I could kill him. I would have enjoyed that.
His biological father, Vincent James McMahonhad left the family while McMahon was still a baby, taking his elder son, Rod, with him.

He later became the play-by-play commentator for television matches after he replaced Ray Morgan ina role he regularly maintained until November Throughout the s, McMahon became the prominent force in his father's company and, over the next decade, assisted his father in tripling TV syndication.

He began expanding the company nationally by promoting in areas outside of the company's Northeast U. As a result, the WWF was able to expand its fanbase into a national mainstream audience as the promotion was featured heavily on MTV programming. On March 31,he ran the first WrestleMania at Madison Square Gardenavailable on closed circuit television in various markets throughout the U.
During the late s, McMahon shaped the WWF into a unique sports entertainment brand that reached out to family audiences while attracting fans who had never before paid attention to pro wrestling.

After struggling against Ted Turner 's World Championship Wrestling WCWMcMahon cemented the WWF as the preeminent wrestling promotion in the late s, when he initiated a new brand strategy that would eventually return the WWF to prominence. Sensing a public shift towards a more hardened and cynical fan base, McMahon redirected storylines towards a more adult-oriented model. The concept became known as "WWF Attitude", and McMahon commenced the new era when he manipulated the WWF Championship away from Bret Hart at Survivor Series in what is now known as the " Montreal Screwjob.
As a result, the WWF suddenly found itself back in the midst of national pop-culture, drawing millions of viewers for its weekly Monday Night Raw broadcasts, which ranked among the highest-rated shows on cable television.

While he did publicly identify himself as the owner of the WWF outside of WWF programming, on TV his ownership of the WWF was considered an open secret through the mids.
Jack Tunney was portrayed as the president of WWF instead of him. McMahon made his commentary debut in when he replaced Ray Morgan after Morgan had a pay dispute with McMahon's father, Vince McMahon, Sr. The elder McMahon let Morgan walk instead of giving into his demands and needed a replacement on the spot, offering it to his son.
For the younger McMahon, it was also somewhat as a compromise, as it allowed him to appear on television. McMahon wanted to be a wrestler but his father would not let him, explaining that promoters did not appear on the show and should stay apart from their wrestlers. McMahon eventually became the regular play-by-play commentator and maintained that role until Novemberportraying himself as easily excited and over-the-top.
In addition to matches, McMahon also hosted other WWF shows, and introduced WWF programming to TBS on Black Saturdayupon the WWF's acquisition of Georgia Championship Wrestling and its lucrative Saturday night timeslot.
