Professional wrestling fans around the world were legitimately stunned when Shane McMahon returned to World Wrestling Entertainment in February 2016 to become an on-air character once again. Those of us who are not working in the WWE cannot say for sure how long McMahon will be around, but it has been announced that the son of Vince McMahon is scheduled to have a Hell in a Cell match versus The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32. There is, as of early March, still time for the WWE to swap McMahon out of that match, but all indications seem to point to McMahon facing off with 'Taker at the biggest show of the year.
McMahon is, as diehard WWE fans know, not a stranger to the ring even though he has been away from the WWE for many years. The son of the WWE CEO earned a reputation for taking crazy bumps that men who are revered as tremendous athletes and great wrestlers have stayed away from during their careers. While McMahon is not one of the best workers of his time, he has been part of some memorable matches, including one of the greatest King of the Ring contests in history. McMahon definitely paid the price and put his body through hell on that night.

It was the kind of match that you will likely never again see in the WWE – at least you won't during the company's PG Era – because of how truly violent it was. Kurt Angle and Shane McMahon told a tremendous story during their encounter at the King of the Ring, and that tale included McMahon being legitimately bounced off of his head on multiple occasions. The truth of the matter is that the WWE is lucky that both McMahon and Angle were able to get through the match without suffering a serious injury. Knowing that they both lived to tell about it afterward helps make re-watching that match enjoyable.
