Shane McMahon hospitalized and presumably unable to wrestle at WrestleMania 34

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Shane McMahon is hospitalized in New York with a case of acute diverticulitis and an umbilical hernia, according to 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.

  1. I hope he makes a full recovery, but frankly I’m quite happy he’s off the show.

  2. This could be a good slot for Samoa Joe. Fresh brand, fresh match ups a needed face turn (he gets cheered anyway). I like it better than the he and Strowman rumours.

  3. Well this certainty puts a wrench into WWE’s plans for the tag match. Maybe the returning hero can single-handely dispatch of the two baddies in a handicap match. But who is gonna jump off the scaffolding atop the arena??

  4. Good, may he never return and may the rest of the family follow him.
