WWE Shares Medical Update On Shane McMahon Following SmackDown Live

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn used to be rivals

The latest episode of SmackDown saw Shane McMahon take a gasp-worthy beatdown at the hands of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. With three more episodes of SmackDown before the April 8th mega show, there's plenty of room for drama.

It's going to be interesting to see how this one unfolds as we edge closer to WrestleMania 34. In fact, freelance writer Brad Shepard (h/t Ringside News) recently had the following to say about the SmackDown product: 'A source in WWE told me that basically everyone that works there knows it's not good'. Both Raw and SmackDown rosters will be featured. Hopefully he's off TV for a good while and things can move forward without him. Will Daniel Bryan team up with Shane McMahon to take on the Zayn and Owens?

"After announcing he would be taking an indefinite leave of absence from his role as SmackDown LIVE Commissioner, Shane McMahon was brutally attacked by Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, whom he had just placed into a match against each other at WrestleMania". It's worth noting that plans as of earlier this month called for Owens and Sami to be in the fifth annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, despite the Sami vs. Owens teases.

"But before I do, I'm here to make one specific and special matchup". Along with this, many were concerned about Vince when he received a headbutt from Owens a year ago, so a match is probably not a good idea. That should quell fears that the main storyline that has dominated SmackDown for such an extended period is not important enough to get a spot on the WrestleMania card.

They have unfinished business with Shane, he was spotted on RAW - perhaps for a good reason - and there wasn't really a conclusion to Owens hitting Vince with a headbutt previous year.

Earlier on the show, Shane McMahon addressed the WWE Universe and announced that he would be taking a temporary leave of absence due to his recent actions, as reported by Wrestling Inc.
