For those who have been living under a rock for the last few weeks, here's a very brief update on what's been happening in Kane's kayfabe life.
His brother, the Undertaker, was attacked and left in vegetative state. Therefore, Kane decided to seek revenge by finding the attacker and striking him down with gruesome vengeance.
It simple terms, Kane was being pushed.
That push reached a new height at last night's Money in the Bank pay-per-view as Kane outlasted seven other men to claim the first ever Money in the Bank briefcase exclusive to SmackDown!
Kane then went on to cash it in against a fallen Rey Mysterio and became the new World Heavyweight champion.
Now, the following is my opinion on how the events of the near future involving Kane will unfold.
First, judging by the announcers' reaction to Kane cashing it in on Mysterio, (Lawler said it was unfair and Striker approved it), I would say a heel turn lies ahead for Kane. I can see him cutting a promo on SmackDown! very soon, detailing his malicious plan and solidifying his turn.
He would say something along these lines:
"I did it. I attacked the Undertaker. I left him for dead in a vegetative state."
"For more than a decade, I have been a shadow behind the Undertaker's bright star. I've stood back and watched him go from strength to strength. I've watched him take all the glory."
"I tried to end his "legend" in the past. I set him on fire, I buried him alive. But nothing —NOTHING —I did was enough...until now."
"This time, I made sure he wouldn't come back. I made sure I rid the world of the Undertaker."
"I stalked him, watching his every move, and then, I struck him down. I left him for dead. I finished what I'd started all those years ago."
"Now, my plan has worked. I am the World champion. I am out of the shadows and into the spotlight. I am a bigger star than the Undertaker."
"I swore vengeance, but that vengeance was exacted before you impostors even knew it."
"Now, you have a true phenom as champion —you have a MONSTER as champion."
Then, maybe a week or two later, or even that night, WWE could begin hyping the Undertaker's return.
Cue the blackouts, the druids, the eerie occurrences, and the vignettes.
Thus would begin the long build to the Undertaker's return. The anticipation of his return would send SummerSlam! pay-per-view buys threw the roof.
Meanwhile, you could have Kane in a state of shock on SmackDown! You could have him in disbelief that he still couldn't get the job done.
Have him go on rampage, attacking everybody and destroying everything in sight.
Finally, have the two meet in a match befitting both men's character.
Have them face off in a "Three Stages of Hell Match."
Stage one—a street fight.
Stage two—Hell in a Cell.
Stage three—Buried Alive match.
It may be a bit much, and chances of it happening are slim, but if booked correctly, it would be awesome.
