WWE announced during this week's Monday Night Raw that a match between Braun Strowman and Shane McMahon was supposed to take place on Sunday at the Fastlane pay-per-view. However, fans noticed on Wednesday that all mentions of the match have been pulled from WWE.com and social media (even the web page that previewed the match has been deleted). There's been no comment from McMahon, Strowman or even WWE itself regarding the change.
The heat between Strowman and McMahon started when "The Monster Among Men" was kept out of the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match last month. "Shane-o-Mac" then reinforced his heel status by mocking Strowman last week and calling him stupid. The former Universal Champion challenged him to a match this week, prompting McMahon to smack him across the head with a TV camera, plant him through a table with a diving elbow and cover him in buckets of green slime.
