IN THE RING The Undertaker + World Heavyweight champion Kane: Taker said that although he may look dead; he’s not dead yet. Taker said he’s still very much the deadman. Taker said this is still his yard. Taker said there’s one thing he needs to make perfectly clear; he will never pardon the guilty. Taker said that brings him to his brother Kane. Taker said Kane is guilty of a treacherous betrayal; a betrayal that he will pay dearly for. Taker said Kane has what he likes to call a diseased soul. Taker said the disease has festered and turned into a web of lies, lies that he thinks he can fulfill his boots. Taker said the biggest lie of them all is the lie that Kane thinks he can carry the championship. Kane came out. Kane said the only one spinning a web of lies is Taker. Kane said he hears the weakness in his voice and can see it in his eyes. Kane said Taker is the one who’s diseased and delusional. Kane said Taker isn’t even a shadow of what he once was and he has no problem crushing him under his boot. Kane said Taker is living in a fantasy; the reality is that he’s bigger, stronger, and is now the dominant brother. Kane said he has nothing left to prove. Taker said there’s a reason why Kane always walked in his shadow. Taker said Kane called himself the devil’s favorite demon last week. Taker said he built the house that the devil lives in. Taker said when he comes calling the devil still answers to him with sir. Taker said Kane has never been worthy and never will be. Taker said Kane isn’t worthy to carry the title and he isn’t worthy of the power that he steals. Taker said Kane is unworthy of being his brother. Taker said he taught Kane everything he knows about evil, but he didn’t teach him everything he (Taker) knows. Taker said when the mood strikes him, he’ll be waiting and when the fight starts, it’s always going to end the same way. Kane said not this time. Kane said they both know that this time it ends the same way that it did at SummerSlam. Kane said he vows on the grave of their mother that Taker will never rest in peace.
