Kane and Daniel Bryan may have unintentionally tipped WWE’s hand about the outcome of their World Tag Team Championship match Sunday night at WWE Royal Rumble 2013.

It looks like Team Hell No definitely will lose the belts to Team Rhodes Scholars.

At the conclusion of Monday night’s Raw show, participants in the big Rumble main event came out to the ring. Each one had a microphone and was stating their case for winning the match.

John Cena was the first in the ring. He was followed by Sheamus, the Prime Time Players, Randy Orton, The Miz and Antonio Cesaro.

Then Kane’s music hit, and he and Bryan walked out together. If their walking out was not a sure sign that their tag team reign was going to end, their dialogue down the ramp should have sealed it.

At first, they talked about how everyone was arguing about how they were going to win the Rumble. Then Kane stated his intent to win the Rumble.

Bryan then stated that he was going to win it. That was followed by their trademark back-and-forth.

That should confirm it. Team Hell No will lose the titles to Team Rhodes Scholars at Royal Rumble.

If they were supposed to retain the titles, then WWE likely would not have put them in the Rumble main event.

The Royal Rumble lineup is arranged so that Kane and Bryan would have time to enter the 30-man main event. The tag team match will be the second match of the evening, at least two matches ahead of the Rumble main event.
