Earlier this week, it was revealed The Undertaker would be appearing on Monday Night Raw next week when it travels to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

However, the WWE did not mention if Shane McMahon, his opponent for this year's WrestleMania, will be at the show as well to confront him. 

We now know, thanks to WWE.com, Shane-O Mac will not be on that show, and he will not appear on Monday Night Raw again until March 7 when the event is at the Allstate Arena in Chicago. The Phenom isn't scheduled to appear on that Raw.

What this means is we will still have to wait for the highly anticipated confrontation between Shane and The Deadman, as they haven't seen one another since their match for WrestleMania was announced this week on Raw.

The match came about after the 45-year-old made his return to the WWE this week on Monday Night Raw, asking his father, Vince McMahon, for control of the show because it was getting run into the ground by his sister, Stephanie McMahon.

Vince then made a deal with his son, that he would gain control of Raw if he won one match for him. Shane accepted the challenge, and then the WWE CEO revealed the clash would be a Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32.

This story is a difficult one to book because so many members of the WWE Universe see The Phenom as a babyface, and Shane returned as a babyface, so it will be tough for fans to decide who they want to win more.

The Undertaker is expected to reveal his motives for the fight next week, which will likely be in order to preserve his WrestleMania legacy. Other than that, there are only a few angles the company could take with this fight.

One could be that Shane has a representative to fight on his behalf, such as John Cena or Sting, who equally want The Authority out of power. Another could be they add another stipulation to the match, such as if The Undertaker loses, he must retire from the WWE.

Some fans have even suggested this feud could carry on into next year for a match at WrestleMania 33 as well, but there have been rumors that Shane-O Mac will not be appearing on WWE television beyond WrestleMania.

Next week's episode of Monday Night Raw will be the first time we have seen The Undertaker on WWE programming since Survivor Series last year, where he defeated Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper of The Wyatt Family in a tag team match alongside his Brothers of Destruction tag team partner, Kane.
