The WWE has announced The Undertaker and Shane McMahon will both be appearing on the last Monday Night Raw before WrestleMania 32.
The show, taking place on March 28 in Brooklyn, New York, will be the last opportunity the company has to promote their feud further before their Hell in a Cell match at WrestleMania at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 3.
The superstars are likely to have a confrontation and a contract signing on the show, as, so far, they haven't met face-to-face since the clash between them was announced almost two weeks ago by Vince McMahon.

Since this feud was announced, the WWE hasn't given fans much information about it. In fact, there has been very little build-up for this match so far considering the names that are involved. For what is at stake in this match as well, this has been an oversight by the WWE so far.
We know that if Shane-O-Mac wins this match against The Phenom, he will get his wish and take control of Monday Night Raw. However, despite his appearance this week on Raw, we still don't really know why The Deadman is so willing to take part in this match on behalf of Mr McMahon. He's a strong babyface character, so it doesn't make much sense why he is working for Vince, who is a heel.
The only thing we have seen from The Undertaker is him say to Vince: "The blood of your son is going to be on your hands," and not his. Why he is getting involved still hasn't been made clear by the WWE, and for a feud of this magnitude, that is an oversight by the company.
He originally wasn't scheduled to appear on any more Raw shows, so one of the reasons why the WWE might have added The Phenom could be because of the negative feedback they have received due to the underdevelopment of this feud.
Shane is expected to appear on next week's Monday Night Raw at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois, to address what was said by The Undertaker and Mr McMahon this week on Raw and expand this feud further.
Hopefully, he will say something that will antagonise The Undertaker to add a bit more fire to this feud, but also, he needs to show off that he is a credible threat towards the former WWE Champion so that the WWE Universe can buy into this storyline further.
It wouldn't be a bad idea for the two to have a scuffle on the last Raw before WrestleMania either so that one of these stars is built up strong entering the company's biggest show of the year.
