Shane McMahon Talks Getting Injured During The Undertaker Match at WrestleMania 32


Shane McMahon wrote a column for ESPN about The Undertaker. During it, McMahon recalled wrestling The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 in 2016 during a Hell in a Cell Match. 

It turns out that when McMahon leaped off the top of the cell and went through an announce table, he suffered a hernia. 

“He was not a proponent of me jumping off the cage,” McMahon revealed. “Not taking anything away from Mick Foley, but this was the new Hell in a Cell. This was bigger, substantially higher. Mark would say there were other things we could do, different iterations. But I told him no. This is what the story needs. It was David vs. Goliath, and you’re expecting David is just going to be killed. In that match, I had exhausted everything in my toolbox to try and win. This is what WrestleMania needs.

“I blew my belly button out — an umbilical hernia — because I hit so hard [on impact]. I didn’t expect that force to be that hard. But oh my god, it was. We knew we had it all the way through the match, just based on the reaction. He was happy with it when it was over.”
