Shane McMahon hospitalized in New York with diverticulitis

 
 

WWE.COM is reporting that Shane McMahon is in a New York-area hospital suffering from acute diverticulitis and an umbilical hernia.

After he filmed his angle with Zayn and Owens on Smackdown, McMahon flew to the Caribbean with his family. While on vacation, he developed a big infection due to the diverticulitis and was hospitalized for several days in Antigua. He was then flown to New York where he is currently being treated with heavy doses of antibiotics.

Shane will need to undergo surgery for the umbilical hernia problem but cannot go under the knife until his infection is cleared.

This is a legit injury and not part of the angle even though WWE.COM played the hernia injury as the after effect from the beating he got from Owens and Zayn.

This latest development puts the proposed tag match at WrestleMania between Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon versus Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in jeopardy and most likely it will now not happen. The situation will get more clear tomorrow night on Smackdown as the company will have to go to their contingency plan for this angle.
