NON (WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT) TITLE MATCH
World Heavyweight champion Kane defeated Chris Masters: Chris put in the master lock early on but Kane managed to break it. Kane attacked Chris’s leg to take over. Kane basically destroyed Masters for the rest of the match and finished him off with the chokeslam and tombstone. After the match Kane said that whatever bit of powers Taker had left couldn’t stop him on Sunday. Kane said he left behind a pile of ruins and proved he was the dominant brother. Kane said Taker is no better than all the weak and pathetic fans. Kane said it’s fear that makes people weak and pathetic. Kane said he could smell fear and the closer he got, the stronger the odor. Kane got into the crowd and said the stench of fear permeates the arena. Kane scared the crap out of some kid by getting close and said they were afraid of what he’s capable of and that no one can stop him anymore. Kane said he is the living breathing embodiment of their fear and the one thing that they desire most in their entire lives is that he just disappears and goes away. Kane said he’s not going anywhere. Kane said he had a challenge for Taker later tonight that he will not allow him to deny. Kane said this past Sunday he may have destroyed Taker’s body but soon enough he will destroy his legend and soul.

C.M. Punk & Luke Gallows: Punk told Luke he was through with Luke and told him to get out because he isn’t worthy of straight edge and never will be.

IN THE RING
Alberto Del Rio + Christian: Alberto said he told Christian they would have a match when he was ready. Alberto said he was ready tonight but where is Christian?

Alberto played the video from last month of him destroying Rey Mysterio. Alberto said he had something for them. Alberto said Rey Mysterio was coming back next week. Alberto said he won’t be here too long because Rey has challenged him to a match again. Alberto said he didn’t want to fight Rey; he wanted to give him a kiss on the cheek. Christian came out holding his arm. Christian started punching Alberto but Ricardo grabbed his leg to distract him. Alberto took over and locked in the cross arm breaker. Alberto wrapped a chair around Christian’s arm and threw him into the steel ring post to finish him off.

IN THE RING
World Heavyweight champion Kane + Paul Bearer + The Undertaker: Kane said there was a new beast of the apocalypse and they were looking at him. Kane said he delivered Taker’s own personal Armageddon when he broke him at Night of Champions and now the ring was his yard. Kane said he knows that Taker is wondering how the phenom fell so far so quickly. Kane said Taker is wondering why he didn’t just put him out of his misery and end things on Sunday. Kane said the fun has just begun. Kane said it was time that they raised the stakes. Kane said the end of The Undertaker will come in the dark corridor that he made famous. Kane said the very same place where he left him a mangled wretch when he thought he was rid of him forever; Hell in a Cell. Kane said the devil may have once answered to him, but now he is the devils favorite demon and Taker is not welcome in hell unless he takes him there. Kane said all the creatures of the night and all the lost souls answer to him. Kane said wherever Taker is, he needs to understand that he has no choice. Kane said Taker will face him at Hell in a Cell and the epilogue to their story will be the same as the epitaph on his tombstone: Here lies The Undertaker, he will never rest in peace, and he will forever burn in hell. Taker’s extended theme started playing and a bunch of druids rolled down a casket. Kane opened the casket and Paul Bearer came out with the urn! The lights went out and when they came back on Taker was standing behind Kane. Taker started pounding the crap out of Kane. Kane bailed from the ring and ran away. Paul held up the urn and Taker posed with Kane screaming no from the ramp.
