Shane McMahon Takes Leave of Absence on SD, Attacked By Zayn Owens

Shane McMahon announced an indefinite leave of absence as Smackdown Commissioner on this week’s episode and was attacked by Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens after booking them in a match against each other at WrestleMania. You can see pics and video from the segment below, in which McMahon said Daniel Bryan would be back next week and that as his last official action, he was booking the two against each other at the PPV.

That brought Owens and Zayn out to criticize the decision, and as a “going away present” they attacked Shane, wrapped a chair around his neck and slammed it into the ringpost. They then dragged Shane backstage and continued an assault on him.

It is worth noting that as he’s stepped down as Commissioner, McMahon is now free to be added to the match with Zayn and Owens. There is speculation that this may happen, though WWE has not confirmed it at this time.
