Shane has attacked his father and run from him at every turn. On Sunday, none of his power or privilege will matter because Shane will be stuck in a steel cage with him. There will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. You will regret what you did and you will go down faster than your dad did to a Superman punch.
