Braun Strowman and Shane McMahon will enter rarified air at WrestleMania when they step inside a Steel Cage.
After weeks of Shane McMahon's failed attempt at conflict resolution and persistent antagonization of Braun Strowman, Braun Strowman has chosen the stipulation for their match which will take place on the first night of WrestleMania 37, Saturday, April 10, 2021.
Shortly after he defeated Jaxson Ryker on the March 29 episode of Monday Night Raw, Shane McMahon once again ran from a confrontation with Braun and that has been Braun announced that he has decided they will meet inside of a Steel Cage on April 10.
Shane McMahon has drawn the ire of Braun Strowman in recent weeks and will now have to enter the ring with a Monster at WrestleMania inside a Steel Cage.
Shane O-Mac tried various attempts to calm Strowman’s frayed nerves over the WWE Title picture and teach lessons in conflict resolution, but the only possible resolution will come inside the squared circle. After Strowman demanded an apology on Raw, McMahon appeared to initially acquiesce, but he quickly turned to poking The Monster Among Men with insults of his intelligence.
The following week, an incensed Strowman had a new demand – a match with McMahon. Before the opening bell, The Monster came out mauling, but McMahon zoomed in on Strowman with repeated blows with a camera before an elbow drop through the announce table and buckets of slime brought the humiliation to a new level. Strowman sought payback at WWE Fastlane, but his plans were foiled when McMahon suffered an apparent knee injury.
On the March 29 edition of Raw, an enraged Monster Among Men held Shane-O-Mac to his word that he could have any match he wanted by choosing the match stipulation for their WrestleMania showdown: A Steel Cage Match!
How will Strowman respond to McMahon’s bullying when they meet inside the unforgiving steel?
Don’t miss the showdown at the special two-night event, streaming live on April 10 and April 11, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT exclusively on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
This will only be the second Steel Cage Match in the history of WrestleMania. There have been other cage structures seen more frequently at the event such as the Hell in a Cell structure which has been utilized just three times at WrestleMania. Shane McMahon was in one of those matches in 2016 when he fought the Undertaker.
The only Cage Match in the history of WrestleMania took place in 1986 when Hulk Hogan successfully defended the WWE Championship against King Kong Bundy during the debut of the blue bar Steel Cage which was featured throughout the Hulk Hogan era.
