The Undertaker defeated Shane McMahon at WresteMania 32 on Sunday, improving his record to 23-1 at WWE’s biggest pay-per-view. The match didn’t close the show, but it provided the highlight of the night in front of over 100,000 fans at AT&T Stadium.
Shane did all that he could to try to defeat the best performer in WrestleMania history, even jumping off the top of the cell and onto an announce table. Shane was looking to drop an elbow on The Undertaker, who had been lying on the table, but he rolled away just in time to avoid the CEO’s son.
Even after falling from 20 feet above the ground, Shane wasn’t done, asking The Undertaker for more. The Undertaker brought him back into the ring and hit a Tombstone Piledriver for the win before Shane was taken backstage on a stretcher.
Shane’s leap from the cell wasn’t his only impressive feat in the match. He also executed Coast-to-Coast, leaping from one turnbuckle to the other. It was his first match since 2009, and Shane gave it all he had, though it wasn’t enough to get the win.
WWE CEO Vince McMahon said the match would be The Undertaker’s last at WrestleMania if he was unable to defeat Shane. Shane would have won control of “Monday Night Raw” with a victory over the Deadman.
It’s unknown what is next for Shane. Since he didn’t get control of “Raw,” it’s possible that his role as an on-screen character could be finished for the near future. The Undertaker will be back at some point, and considering he appeared on five PPVs in 2015, he might have a match sooner than some fans would think.
