Shane McMahon is hospitalized in New York with a case of acute diverticulitis and an umbilical hernia, according to WWE.com. The story states that Shane went to the Caribbean with his family and developed an infection caused by acute diverticulitis. The hernia was discovered while he was being treated and will require surgery once the infection clears.
Powell’s POV: Shane’s medical issues would seem to rule him out of the expected tag team match with him and Daniel Bryan facing Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 34. Thus, it will be interesting to see where WWE goes from here with that storyline. Obviously, we wish Shane the best in his recovery.
