WWE Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon, 47, has shown no fear in recent years, putting his life and body on the line for what is called “sports entertainment.” McMahon was wrestling rival, Kevin Owens in a ‘Hell in the Cell’ match at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on Sunday, when he leapt from the top of the cage.
After falling more than 20 feet, McMahon was knocked unconscious before being attended to by ringside officials.
In the aftermath of the stunt, WWE released a statement about McMahon’s health.
“SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon has been taken to a local medical facility after leaping from the top of Hell in a Cell and crashing through an announce table during his brutal Falls Count Anywhere Hell in a Cell Match against Kevin Owens,” the statement read.
“A preliminary report has determined that Shane may be dealing with multiple injuries, including neck trauma, fractured ribs and a dislocated shoulder,” it continued. “While nothing has been confirmed at this time, WWE.com will continue to monitor Shane’s condition.”
