WWE News: Fan footage of Shane McMahon's leap shows different angles of the move
What's the story?
Tons of live video was posted on Twitter in response to Shane McMahon's leap from the top of the Hell in a Cell structure. A few of those videos provide new angles and shock value to the leap McMahon took at Hell in a Cell. Here are two different angles of the 47-year-old's incredibly violent bump.
In case you didn't know...
Shane McMahon and Kevin Owens competed in a Hell in a Cell match for the ages on October 08, 2017. The match was physical throughout, but it was the ending that had everyone buzzing.
As McMahon leapt off the top of the cell to hit Owens with an elbow drop, Sami Zayn appeared out of nowhere to pull the Prizefighter out of the incoming McMahon's way.
Everyone watching at home was stunned as Zayn helped his long-time nemesis avoid disaster and win the match against McMahon. It's an ending few saw coming, leaving a lot of people excited for the next episode of Smackdown Live.
The heart of the matter
A lot of people captured the moment of insanity on camera. A few fan footage camera angles provide some insight on where all the key players were when the spot happened.
In the first video posted above, you can see that the medics were already ringside, anticipating McMahon's bump.
In the second video, you can see that Zayn already had his hood off as McMahon was preparing to leap. Although it came off like a last-second save on PPV, it came across as more contrived for the people attending live.
This was obviously a huge show-closing angle from WWE. The heel turn by Zayn sent shockwaves through the WWE Universe. It will be interesting to see where WWE goes with this new pairing of Zayn and Owens.
It's always cool seeing the live video from fans at the arena. It provides you with a different angle than what WWE is presenting you through your TV. While the Zayn appearance was a surprise on TV, the live fans had about 30 seconds to prepare for what happened. It's still an amazing moment, though, that'll be talked about for years.
