For only the second time in 2017, Smackdown Live commissioner Shane McMahon climbed through the ropes for a match inside a WWE ring at Hell In A Cell last night — and in case the name of the pay-per-view didn’t tip you off, McMahon was one half of the main event, which took place inside Satan’s structure. Just like the last time Shane-O-Mac stepped inside Hell In A Cell, the match ended up outside the cell, and more importantly, McMahon ended jumping off the whole dang thing.
Last year, he tried to murder the Undertaker, who moved at the last second, letting Shane smash into an announce table that was braced with an airbag. Last night, however, he tried to murder Kevin Owens, who was pulled off the table at the last second by Sami Zayn, letting Shane smash into an announce table that definitely did not look to be braced with an airbag. Here, watch:
Ouch. Following Owens pinning Shane, McMahon was taken out on a stretcher, but gave the crowd a thumbs-up before going through the curtain. Well, according to the ever-trustworthy reporters at WWE.com, “A preliminary report has determined that Shane may be dealing with multiple injuries, including neck trauma, fractured ribs and a dislocated shoulder.”
The article goes on to state that “nothing has been confirmed at this time,” which makes you wonder just how little access WWE.com is given at WWE events, and it also makes you wonder how much of this is a work. But it’s safe to say that if we see Shane on Smackdown Live this Tuesday, he’ll probably be inside one of those inflatable Zorb balls for maximum protection. Maybe he’ll even wear it to his upcoming court appearance.
