WWE has provided the following injury update on SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon after his brutal Hell in a Cell match against Kevin Owens:
“SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon has been taken to a local medical facility after leaping from the top of Hell in a Cell and crashing through an announce table during his brutal Falls Count Anywhere Hell in a Cell Match against Kevin Owens.
A preliminary report has determined that Shane may be dealing with multiple injuries, including neck trauma, fractured ribs and a dislocated shoulder. While nothing has been confirmed at this time, WWE.com will continue to monitor Shane’s condition.”
Speaking of Shane O’Mac, Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer recently talked about possible backstage resentment towards Shane McMahon. According to Metlzer, many wrestlers aren’t happy about the fact that Shane gets to be in big matches and perform major bumps. Also, if Shane gets injured, he can take time off to heal, but these full time wrestlers can’t do that.
Below is what Meltzer said:
“The one thing Shane has the advantage on, which the full-time guys don’t have, and I remember guys used to be critical of this when Shane would do the big bumps.
Because it was like ‘well, Shane’s gonna do one or two matches a year, and he’s gonna do this big bump, and he can get hurt and rest up. And he shows us all up that are trying to do big bumps, and we gotta come back the next day.’ So in a sense, there was resentment of him.”
