Rusev Added to US Championship Match at WrestleMania

"If Shane and I lose and Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens win, they will be reinstated to Smackdown LIVE".

"Therefore, I propose to give Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens one more opportunity".

On Monday, WWE announced that McMahon had been hospitalized after developing a "massive infection due to acute diverticulitis". Movement, spitefully rebelling against Shane, defying the Commissioner at every turn and even causing a rift between Shane and General Manager Daniel Bryan. The first came at 2001's WrestleMania X-Seven where the Hardys, Edge and Christian, and The Dudley Boyz blew the roof off the Astrodome with one of the greatest matches of all-time. Bryan said he will team up with Shane McMahon for the match on "the grandest stage of them all".

We are less than two weeks away from "The Show of Shows" and honestly speaking, the penultimate Raw and SmackDown Live before WrestleMania 34 were underwhelming at best. According to the report, he was also suffering from an umbilical hernia that would surgery once the infection had been taken care of.

The WrestleMania 34 pay-per-view arrives on Sunday, April 8, from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Bryan was cleared to wrestle again last week after a two-year retirement caused by a series of concussions.

Nearly immediately after the segment on SmackDown Live happened, one of Shane and Bryan's opponents was on Twitter.

"Bryan alluded to McMahon's health and added he "[has] good reason to believe that he'll be ready to go" at WrestleMania. The bad blood reached new levels of intensity several months ago when Zayn appeared from out of nowhere to help Owens win a barbaric Hell in a Cell Match against Shane-O-Mac, thus renewing his friendship with his former bitter rival.
