WWE Announces Shane McMahon Injuries

On Tuesday's edition of SmackDown, Shane McMahon announced he was stepping aside as SmackDown Commissioner indefinitely - but not before driving one final nail into the friendship of Owens and Zayn by scheduling them to go one-on-one at WrestleMania.

Owens and Zayn then came out and expressed their joy to see McMahon go but also chose to give him a brutal parting gift. From there, it only got crazier, as Owens headbutted Vince McMahon in the middle of the ring - setting the stage for a Hell in a Cell match between Owens and Shane at Survivor Series.

Either way, it's about time SmackDown did something with Owens and Zayn to make things interesting for the first time since this rivalry started almost six months ago. He also declared a match between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 34.

Shane McMahon also announced that Sami Zayn will be facing Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 34, and neither Zayn nor Owens were too happy about that announcement.

Owens and Zayn did not stop there and took out referees who tried to stop the assault before they placed a steel chair around McMahon's neck and proceeded to smash him into the ring post. There is speculation that this may happen, though WWE has not confirmed it at this time. The duo wrapped a chair around Shane's head and threw him into the turnbuckle, resulting in a laryngeal contusion, as revealed in the update by WWE. The shocking move to turn the very likable Zayn babyface was initially met with excitement about the prospects of where it might be headed, but almost half a year later, the feud has largely been a never-ending cycle of nothing that obviously never had a clear end goal in mind. It remains to be seen whether Shane McMahon will return as the commissioner of SmackDown Live following this brutal attack. Smackdown Live concluded with McMahon being taken to a hospital on a stretcher.

WWE will update on the extent of Shane's injuries within next 24 hours.
