The Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker match at WrestleMania 32 just got more interesting. WWE chairman Vince McMahon added a new stipulation for the Hell in a Cell match.
Vince announced on the latest episode of Monday Night RAW that if The Undertaker losses at WrestleMania 32, it will be his final match at The Grandest Stage of Them All. This stipulation adds intrigue to the match since The Undertaker is synonymous to WrestleMania.
“The Phenom” is known for his unprecedented 21 straight wins at the event before suffering his first defeat against Brock Lesnar on WrestleMania 30 last 2014. The Undertaker bounced back in last year’s WrestleMania by winning over Bray Wyatt to put his record to 22-1.
As mentioned in a previous article, Shane-O-Mac returned to WWE in February 22 episode of RAW wherein he confronted his father. It was at the same show that Vince announced the Hell in a Cell match between his son and The Undertaker.
The stipulation at that point was if Shane wins against The Undertaker, he will gain control of RAW and the entire WWE. That stipulation alone makes the match very interesting since many fans are sick and tired of seeing The Authority every week.
The addition of a stipulation for The Undertaker makes it more interesting because it may very well be his last match. Vince did not say specifically that it’s a retirement match, but The Undertaker’s final match should only take place at a WrestleMania.
“The Deadman” is already 50-years-old and has been wrestling since 1984. He debuted in the WWE in 1990 and became one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. WrestleMania 32 will be held in Dallas and it’s a fitting way for The Undertaker to wrestle his final match on his home state.
Nevertheless, there is also the fact that if Shane McMahon wins the match, he could just remove The Undertaker’s WrestleMania ban since he’ll be in charge of WWE.
