Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker (Hell in a Cell Match)

Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker (Hell in a Cell Match)

Shane McMahon wants control, but he'll have to fight through Hell against The Undertaker to get it.

The Undertaker has WWE in his veins. He’s been a fixture in the company through thick and thin, destroying opponents and earning respect from the locker room for 25 years and counting. At WrestleMania, though, he’ll fight for his legacy at The Showcase of the Immortals when he enters Hell in a Cell to face someone born into WWE royalty and eyeing control over its flagship program Raw: Shane McMahon, the grandson of WWE’s founding father and son of WWE’s current Chairman.

If The Deadman loses, not only will Shane take over Monday nights, but, thanks to a stipulation revealed by WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon on March 21, The Undertaker will also be barred from competing at WrestleMania ever again.

The precipitously high stakes began taking shape on the Feb. 22 Raw, when Shane-O-Mac returned to WWE for the first time since 2010 to interrupt his sister Stephanie McMahon from becoming the first recipient of the Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award. Shane rejected his father’s hug and handshake before saying Stephanie did not earn this new honor.

Shane then told his father that he wanted control of Monday Night Raw to ensure the company’s future, which Mr. McMahon agreed to on one condition: Shane defeats The Undertaker at WrestleMania in a Hell in a Cell Match. If Shane loses, he must surrender a lock box of family secrets to his father. Mr. McMahon also revealed that he’ll write Shane out of his will — leaving everything to Stephanie — and disown his son.

Although the WWE Chairman has banked on the unparalleled powers of The Undertaker to keep Shane at bay, The Deadman initially appeared nonplussed about his involvement, warning Mr. McMahon that Shane’s blood will be on his hands and not The Phenom’s.

Yet, Shane-O-Mac awoke The Undertaker’s monstrous side during a face-to-face confrontation on Raw when he stated that The Phenom — one of the most revered competitors in WWE history — was nothing more than a puppet under the control of Mr. McMahon. As a result of his brash words, not to mention a shove from behind by his father, Shane suffered a thunderous chokeslam that night.

Shane McMahon argues he has heart, fearlessness and speed on his side, and unlike most billionaire’s sons, he has proven that he’ll go crashing through anything — be it glass or gravity — for a win.

Will that be enough to overcome The Undertaker inside the Devil’s Playground, Hell in a Cell, and claim control of Raw, ending The Undertaker’s WrestleMania legacy in the process? Or will The Undertaker add another tortured soul to his list of Hell in a Cell victims? Watch this historic and potentially game-changing altercation when WrestleMania airs live on WWE Network tonight at a special start time of 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
