Last week, Shane McMahon made a surprise return to the WWE, asking his father, Vince McMahon, for control of Monday Night Raw because he claimed it was getting run into the ground by his sister, Stephanie McMahon.
The WWE CEO said to his son that he could have control of Raw if he wins a Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker at this year's WrestleMania. Since that announcement, Shane-O-Mac has begun his training for arguably his biggest challenge of his wrestling career.
We have already seen that he has enlisted the help of Muay Tai trainer Ajarn Phil Nurse to help him prepare for this match, but Shane has recently announced he is training with former WWE and ECW superstar, Tommy Dreamer.

Shane said in a tweet: "Thank you to my good friend @THETOMMYDREAMER who, during training today, nearly knocked me out of my Jordan's. #ooooffff"
For those of you that didn't know, Dreamer is known to be a proper hardcore wrestler, going by the names of The Innovator of Violence, and The Heart of Hardcore because of his time in ECW, and Shane McMahon is no stranger to hardcore wrestling himself.
Both superstars are former WWE Hardcore Champions, a title that was always contested under hardcore rules of no disqualifications, no count outs, and pinfalls count anywhere.
Alongside the video of Shane-O-Mac performing what looks like a head-kick during training, and his history of hardcore moments, such as jumping off the titantron, it looks the WWE Universe could be about to witness the hardcore wrestler version of Shane McMahon we have seen and loved in the past.
The Deadman might even bring a bit of hardcore wrestling to the match as well, as he recently said to Mr McMahon on Raw this week: "The blood of your son is going to be on your hands," and not his. Of course, The Undertaker has been involved in countless Hell in a Cell matches in the past and is no stranger to the hardcore style.
This could be a sign we are about to witness a Hell in a Cell match between Shane and The Undertaker that will live up to its namesake, rather than the PG style types we have seen in the past few years.
Shane-O-Mac will be appearing on Raw on March 7 to address what The Phenom and Vince McMahon said about him this past week. Hopefully, he will reveal what he is going to bring to the match in order to try and win at WrestleMania.
As of right now, the WWE Universe must be very excited for this match as both superstars have been giving everything in training in an attempt to put on the best show possible on April 3 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
