If haven’t been following WWE’s latest Spooptacular, the “New Face of Fear” Bray Wyatt has allegedly consumed the souls of both the Undertaker and Kane. Taker has been a supernatural force for nearly 25 years, while his demonic brother Kane dates back to the Attitude Era. Needless to say, they’re getting on in years, and Wyatt assumed he could take their place as the, ah, “resident evil” of the WWE.
Didn’t quite work out for him!
First Wyatt and his swamp goons ambushed Taker after his latest battle with Brock Lesnar (that’d be at Hell in a Cell 2015). Then Demon Kane lost his bout with Seth Rollins. With these two literally and figuratively on the ropes, Wyatt swooped in and said he had harvested their souls… and demonstrated this claim by controlling the lights & pyro, something Taker and Kane tend to do.
But last night on RAW, Wyatt went one step too far – he tried to conduct an actual eulogy for the two, saying their time is over and their bodies are done for. But as with any good soap opera where people die, un-die, get married and turn into robots and then die again, the Brothers of Destruction returned and laid waste to Wyatt and his stable.
It’s all a little hokey and watching two super made men plow through the up-and-comers is a little counterproductive, but gat damn I can’t help but cheer for Taker and Kane going on one final tour together.
Should be noted though, that this entire conflict feels a bit strange after the LT crew watched Taker lay Wyatt out all by himself at Wrestlemania 31. BUT I’m willing to pretend that match never happened, just to see a proper battle between the two.
Survivor Series 2015 is two weeks away and it’s assumed The Wyatts (four bros) will duke it out with Taker, Kane and at least two others (Sting?).
This could very well be the final Survivor Series that Taker… and even Kane participate in, so hope you’re watching!
