What’s the story?

Smackdown Live commissioner Shane McMahon was hospitalized immediately after his brutal Hell in a Cell match against Kevin Owens at WWE Hell in a Cell 2017.

After the show, WWE reported that McMahon was rushed to a local medical facility in Detroit because of the injuries he suffered in his match.

In case you didn’t know…

This past Sunday, Shane McMahon went toe-to-toe with former United States champion Kevin Owens inside the barbaric hell in a cell structure.

McMahon lost to Owens on the night due to interference from Sami Zayn, who pulled Owens out of the way as the Boy Wonder jumped from the top of the cell. The SD Live commissioner went through an announce table in brutal fashion, which left him with several injuries.

The heart of the matter

After his loss to Kevin Owens on the night, Shane McMahon was reportedly left with neck trauma, fractured ribs, and also a dislocated shoulder due to his fall from the top of the cell.

WWE issued a statement on their official website regarding Shane’s condition, which stated that Shane had been taken to a local hospital after crashing through an announce table during his falls count anywhere match.

It seems like Shane McMahon will be off TV for a specific amount of time, having suffered multiple injuries after the devastating fall. WWE also has stated that a preparatory report seemed to have confirmed Shane’s neck, ribs and shoulder injury.

While there has been no official statement on when Shane O’Mac is expected to make his return, WWE has said that they will keep monitoring Shane’s condition closely and will keep everyone updated. At this moment, there is no indication whether this is a work or a shoot.

What’s next?

Having suffered a neck trauma, fractured ribs, and a dislocated shoulder, it does not seem that the former WWE Hardcore champion will make his return anytime soon.


There has also been a rumour suggesting that Shane might team up with AJ Styles at Survivor Series to take on the duo of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn; if that plan does come to fruition, this statement is nothing more than a part of a storyline.

Author’s take

The idea of Shane McMahon and Styles vs Zayn and Owens is promising, and the vast majority of WWE plans probably concur. However, if McMahon is genuinely injured, those plans will have to go out of the window.
