Why did he do Mcmahon's bidding. He has worked with him before but that was when he was a heel. He was a babyface this time around. Why did agree to do this for Vince ?? A reasonable explanation would've been for Vince to come out and say after Lesnar broke the streak at WM 30. HHH & Steph wanted to get rid of Taker and Vince fought to keep him around if he (Undertaker) did one favor for him. Didnt Undertaker himself say when came back after Battleground in July 2015 that he made some deal with a devil. Well that could've been a deal with Vince. I always thought this was weird and unexplained. Storyline wise atleast.

That whole storyline was one of WWE's largest clusters in recent times. Shane comes back, immediately wants to take over Vince's spot. Vince freaking disowns Shane as a son, yet Shane blackmails Vince with the contents of a black box that to this day we have no idea what was in it (and the idea seemed completely dropped quick). Vince off blackmail agrees to give Shane a chance where in story Shane is done forever if he loses and tries to destroy him with Undertaer. As you mentioned, Undertaker agrees for no reason.

Shane lost and despite disowning him and everything, Vince rewards Shane with a promotion to run a brand, undoing the whole build.
