Despite a kayfabe report to the contrary released on WWE.com and an update issued during the most recent episode of SmackDown Live, it appears Shane McMahon did not suffer a major injury after jumping off the top of the cell during the Hell in a Cell PPV on Sunday. WWE released the following statement:
“Some reports went out saying Shane suffered neck trauma, fractured ribs and a dislocated shoulder, however, we have learned that those reports have been unconfirmed. However, what we can confirm is that this past Sunday, Shane McMahon was released from a medical facility, and is now home resting and recuperating comfortably.”
McMahon was not on television for Tuesday’s SmackDown Live, where the Owens storyline was furthered with Sami Zayn explaining why he pulled Owens off the announcer’s table as McMahon came crashing down from above.
McMahon performed a similar spot at WrestleMania 32 in his match with The Undertaker. He was off T.V. for a brief period following that match, as well. No word on when either Shane or his father Vince McMahon — who was busted open by a head-butt from Owens in the lead up to Hell in a Cell — will be back on T.V.
