WrestleMania 32 last night was overall lackluster. After 12 matches across the preshow and the main card, including arguably one of the worst main events in WrestleMania history, only three matches stood out either on grounds of unpredictability, great ring work, or both.
Those were the Intercontinental Championship match which was surprisingly won by Zack Ryder, the Women's Championship match, in which Charlotte came out victorious, and the Hell in a Cell match which The Undertaker won.
It was this match between The Deadman and Shane McMahon which also had one of the best spots of the night as well, with Shane-O-Mac pulling out all the stops despite having been out of the business for so long.

During his match, Shane had beaten The Undertaker onto the announce table. He then decided there was only one way for him to keep The Phenom down so that he could win this match and gain control of Monday Night Raw. Jump off the top of the cell onto him and the announce table below.
He climbed to the top of the cell, which WWE say is 20-feet high, looked down below, said a prayer - probably to ask to be spared from death - and made the leap only to find The Deadman had risen and moved after the way during Shane's journey back to earth.

This spot was arguably one of the best moments of the night, and it drew a huge cry of shock from all members of the WWE Universe in attendance. Shane McMahon, you crazy man.
The Undertaker then carried Shane's lifeless carcass into the ring for a Tombstone piledriver, and then picked up the pinfall victory to retain his right to compete at WrestleMania and to stop his opponent taking over Monday Night Raw.
Of course, Shane-O-Mac is no stranger to the death-defying drops and stunts, and this spot was a bit of a nostalgia trip for older wrestling fans. He has jumped off the top of the titantron, a similar height to the cell, during a match against the Big Show at Backlash in 2001, and during a match against Steve Blackman at SummerSlam 2000.
For the age both wrestlers are and how much they have put their bodies through throughout their career, this was one of the best matches of the night. That might be the last time we see Shane McMahon in the ring for a while, not because he lost but due to his injuries from the fall too. However, they both left everything in the ring, and the match exceeded expectations.
One of, if not, the best match of the night, and Shane McMahon's death-defying jump off the top of the cell was one of the best moments of this year's WrestleMania.
