Last night's (Sun. October 8, 2017) Hell In A Cell pay-per-view (PPV) main event between Kevin Owens and SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon was quite the physical affair - and it may have cost McMahon a few days in the hospital.
For the past several weeks, McMahon and Owens have been at each other's throats in one of the most interesting feuds on SmackDown Live today. It all began at SummerSlam after Owens lost his United States Title match against AJ Styles, a match in which McMahon served as Special Guest Referee. Owens blamed McMahon for his loss and the two began a rivalry of sorts.
Things escalated out of control when Owens went too far by mentioning Shane's kids, leading to an all out assault from McMahon on "KO," which led to a lawsuit threat from the Canadian.
Vince McMahon returned to WWE TV the following week to confront Owen's lawsuit threat, and made a Hell In A Cell match between his son and Owens instead.
After Owens accepted the match, he proceeded to attack Vince so bad that he actually was bleeding from his forehead. Following a few more physical confrontations between Owens and Shane, the pair finally got their shot at each other inside "The Devil's Playground" last night.
The pair put on a great show that led to Owens winning thanks to a shocking assist from Sami Zayn. Per a report from WWE.com, however, the match left Shane suffering from multiple injuries. It's possible that he could be off WWE TV for a few weeks.
"SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon has been taken to a local medical facility after leaping from the top of Hell in a Cell and crashing through an announce table during his brutal Falls Count Anywhere Hell in a Cell Match against Kevin Owens.
"A preliminary report has determined that Shane may be dealing with multiple injuries, including neck trauma, fractured ribs and a dislocated shoulder.
"While nothing has been confirmed at this time, WWE.com will continue to monitor Shane’s condition."
