Shane was brutally attacked by Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn to an extent that he was being attended by paramedics as the show went off the air.
Owens and Zayn then came out and expressed their joy to see McMahon go but also chose to give him a brutal parting gift.
The two faced off in a Hell in a Cell match which saw Owens winning with the help of Zayn. This enraged the duo, who made a decision to interfere with the proceedings and show their anger in the most expected way.
The planned match between Zayn and Owens is now in doubt and so too is the immediate wellbeing of Shane O Mac, who was struggling for breath as SmackDown faded to black. The duo wrapped a chair around Shane's head and threw him into the turnbuckle, resulting in a laryngeal contusion, as revealed in the update by WWE. McMahon suffered several injuries during the attack, WWE.com can confirm.
Owens and Zayn then dragged McMahon up the ramp and into the backstage area where they delivered another Powerbomb onto steel equipment.
The son of WWE chairman Vince McMahon has been the commissioner of SmackDown since the brand split in 2016.
This proves that Zayn isn't blindly loyal as the vibe gave off and he does have at least some resistance to Owens. There really had not been any storyline advancement for this rivalry over the last couple of months as it seemed to be just a case of WWE consistently doing a 360 with Owens, Zayn, Bryan and Shane and ending up right back where it started. Further updates on McMahon's status are expected in the next 24 hours.
