After announcing he would be taking an indefinite leave of absence from his role as SmackDown LIVE Commissioner, Shane McMahon was brutally attacked by Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, whom he had just placed into a match against each other at WrestleMania 34. To further the storyline, WWE.com announced that McMahon suffered several injuries during the attack.
“He sustained a laryngeal contusion when the steel chair was wrapped around his head and thrown into the turnbuckle,” WWE medical staff said.
Owens and Zayn continued the attack by dragging McMahon to the back and powerbombing him onto a metal rack, resulting in further injuries.
“He was then thrown onto the metal rack, which resulted in trapezius and rhomboid strains,” medical staff continued.
WWE.com adds, “McMahon is currently being evaluated to make sure his airway is not compromised.”
Further updates on McMahon’s status are expected on Wednesday.
It was reported earlier that McMahon is scheduled to wrestle Owens and Zayn at WrestleMania. It’s possible that he faces Owens and Zayn in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match since there’s no word yet of their bout being a tag team match.
