Shane McMahon Jumped Off A Cage Last Night And It Was Intense
SPOILERS. If you haven't yet seen last night's WWE Hell in a Cell and don't want to know who won, click away now. There are spoilers in this article. OK, don't say I didn't warn you.
The WWE Hell in a Cell 2017 clash took place last night, seeing Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon face off against each other inside the massive steel cage.
Now, before you all tell me 'wrestling's not real', like I don't already know that, watch McMahon's jump off the top of the cage and tell me that's not impressive.
I know wrestlers get a lot of flak for it being 'faked', but honestly, name any other sports star who would do that? No padding, no mattresses, just him, a table and, what I assume is an awful lot of training on how to 'safely' fall and land. Rather him than me.
However you feel about wrestling, McMahon shows an unreal amount of dedication to his job, but I guess if your dad is legendary Vince McMahon then that's going to happen, isn't it?
McMahon was later seen being carried out on a stretcher at the end of the show, which to be fair, could have been part of the act or a genuine trip to A&E. It's impossible to tell, really.
Time to fly...

I wonder if they have to use a safe word, so the refs and medics know the difference between pretending to be hurt and actually 'oh fuck, call me an ambulance'?
dangerous spectacular as the move was, it wasn't enough to give McMahon the edge and, after a helping hand from Sami Zayn, KO was announced as the victor.
Last year @ShaneMcMahon returned to @WWE in Detroit as a hero. Tonight, he leaves Detroit a broken human being. Tonight, I'm the hero. #HIAC

This isn't the first time McMahon has pulled off this move, last year at Wrestlemania 32, when he was facing the Undertaker. I guess as signature moves goes, this one is pretty special, let's hope if he was hurt he makes a quick recovery and if he wasn't that he gets an Oscar nomination for best actor.
