Shane McMahon, the commissioner of Smackdown, surprised everyone when he took the place of an injured Baron Corbin on the Smackdown team.
With both the brands battling for supremacy, McMahon put his body on the line when he crashed through the announce table to take out Braun Strowman, But the biggest blow of the night came when Roman Reigns connected with a spear on McMahon in mid-air while McMahon was delivering the Coast to Coast.
This blow almost knocked McMahon out and there were worried faces everywhere.
According to f4wonline.com, the injury was genuine but as the night went by, McMahon felt better and told everyone including his family that there was nothing to worry about.
The spot didn’t go as planned, as apparently their heads collided and McMahon’s head hit the mat pretty hard resulting in him getting in a dazed state.
The actual plan was for Reigns to get the pinfall, but McMahon kicked out as he had no idea what was going on, this caught the attention of the referee who checked on him and held up the match until McMahon was announced as having been eliminated.

With the alarming rates of head injuries and concussions in wrestling, it can be assumed that the WWE doctors must have run all possible tests on McMahon to verify the status of his injury. According to inquisitr.com, it does not appear that McMahon had to go to a local health facility for further tests.
McMahon can consider himself lucky as his injury didn’t lead to worse consequences, unlike Enzo Amore who suffered a similar injury at Payback, when his head had hit the mat after bouncing off the bottom rope.
Enzo had to be admitted to a local healthcare facility for recovery.
Despite McMahon having a reputation for being a dare devil, it might be time for him to slow down as he has to realise that age has caught up with him and he’s not the same as he was 15 years ago.
Here is a look at some of the bravest things that Shane McMahon has pulled off in a wrestling ring:
