IN THE RING World Heavyweight champion Kane + Edge & Paul Bearer (big screen): Kane said this situation has gone on way too long, and he wants his father back. Kane said Edge has treated his father Paul Bearer as some toy and he doesn’t deserve it. Kane said he has apologized and done everything that he’s been asked to do, but Edge insists on amusing himself at the expense of the one person in the world he (Kane) cares about. Kane said despite all the things he has done in the past, he is not a monster, and he has feelings. Kane said it was tearing his heart out and EDGE IS THE MONSTER! Kane said he was forced to chase Edge down and now he is begging him to “please, please, give my father back!” Kane begged for it to end tonight. Edge came up on the big screen and got Kane’s attention. Edge said it will end at the TLC PPV. Edge revealed that he was standing next to a bound and gagged Paul Bearer. Edge suggested he brush up on his skills before TLC, and threatened to him him with a chair. Edge faked it twice and then whacked Paul on the back and knocked him off his chair! Kane jumped out of the ring and ran backstage and begged Edge to put the chair down. Edge lifted the chair above his head and bashed Paul with it, but it was just a dummy to psych out Kane again. Edge appeared with the real Paul and ran off again leaving a tormented Kane to give chase.
