McMahon went for his trademark coast to coast leap with Roman Reigns down in the corner, but that is where things would turn nasty.

Reigns would get up and catch Shane with a spear in mid air - giving the Smackdown commissioner a hard landing on his head.

When the referee saw just how unresponsive Shane was he immediately ruled him out of the contest and he was escorted from ringside by doctors.

It left the fans wondering just how legitimate his injury was and if there was genuine concern for his well being?

Just under 24 hours removed from the event and it has been revealed that he will fine - although there is no confirmation on whether or not he suffered a concussion during the match.

Concussions have become a much more serious issue in recent years - largely due to the NFL, but fans will now wait eagerly for Smackdown on Tuesday for a further update.

While Reigns isn't being blamed for the incident, one man who is being praised more than anyone for his actions during the incident is Randy Orton.

Orton, who was on Team Smackdown was quick to console McMahon's family at ringside whilst they watched their father and husband be escorted away by doctors.
