Shane McMahon returned to wwe and demanded control of Monday Night Raw from Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon.
Shane revealed he wanted control of Raw, a wish WWE chairman Vince McMahon granted him on one condition: only if he wins one match, on one night. Vince said that he will choose Shane’s opponent, and if he wins, then he can have control of Monday Night Raw.

Many fans have been disappointed about what they perceive to be a lackluster buildup to the biggest pay-per-view of the year. Pitting The Undertaker against Shane McMahon in a Hell in the Cell should certainly provide some more buzz for the event.
Shane's return Monday was a surprise on its own, but the bigger surprise is the fact that he'll be wrestling The Undertaker at WrestleMania—an honor generally reserved for either the biggest stars in the company or up-and-coming Superstars in need of momentum.

McMahon wouldn't fall into either category, but this could be a shrewd move by WWE. From a storyline perspective, Vince couldn't have picked a better way to stack the odds against his son than by selecting The Undertaker.
The Deadman no longer has his undefeated streak, but he's nearly invincible when competing at WrestleMania.
Since the streak is dead, it's more likely that Shane could win, further building the anticipation. If this had happened before The Undertaker lost to Brock Lesnar, few likely would have believed Shane had any chance.
The match is unlikely to be a mat classic, yet it could provide another one of the crazy moments that have come to be synonymous with Shane's in-ring career:
If Shane wins, he could provide a necessary shift in the WWE power structure—at least on Raw after The Authority has controlled proceedings for years.
Even if he loses, it wouldn't be the worst result as long as he maintains some sort of presence on WWE programming.
Vince McMahon can't hang around in WWE forever, and Monday may have been the moment Shane started fully following in his father's footsteps.
