The 5-on-5 men’s tag team match between Team Raw and Team Smackdown was perhaps the best match of the night at the 2016 Survivor Series. Although the blue brand eventually picked up the win, the only setback for them may be a possible injury to their Commissioner, Shane McMahon.
Shane played a huge part in Smackdown Live’s victory as he put his body on the line to help remove the biggest physical threat in the Raw team, Braun Strowman. After Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt teamed up to gain the upper hand over Strowman in the ringside area, they laid him on one of the announce tables.
‘Shane-O-Mac’ climbed up on the top rope and in his signature style, delivered the elbow drop on ‘The Abominable Strowman’ thereby contributing to the latter being counted out. A little later in the match, McMahon showed great spirit as he took on both Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins at the same time, managing to dominate them both.
However, as he went for the Coast-to-Coast on Reigns, who was lying on the adjacent side to the ring, he was caught in mid-air by a spear from ‘the Big Dog’. Shane landed rather nastily on the mat and appeared to have suffered an injury as the referee called for the medics, bringing an end to his participation in the match.
Even as the medical staff were attending to Shane McMahon, Randy Orton was seen walking up to the SmackDown Commissioner’s son in the crowd and apparently telling him not to worry about his father.
Raw general manager Mick Foley tweeted the following:
While the legitimacy of the injury to Shane is yet to be confirmed by the WWE, we can only hope that it is not something too serious.
