The Undertaker’s retirement may seem destined, and even Daniel Bryan’s return has been questioned, but Halloween seems the perfect day for Kane to pop up and put some of the rumors in the grave.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, when the rumor came out that The Undertaker would become a NXT adviser, it made complete sense since Mark Calaway needed to find a long-term role with the company that did not involve in-ring wrestling. Although Backstage news from the WWE even seemed to confirm the rumor, a WWE spokesperson officially denied The Undertaker rumors as being “inaccurate.” Unfortunately, this spokesperson did not clarify whether this meant the WWE NXT rumors or the subject of The Undertaker’s retirement, although the latter should probably be presumed.
When Kane spoke to CBS News to discuss his new horror movie See No Evil 2, he was asked about the uncertain futures of both Daniel Bryan and The Undertaker. Fortunately, he thinks the Yes Movement will eventually be satisfied.
“He’s a very resilient guy and he’s going to be back. Unfortunately, it’s just one of those things. That’s what happens with injuries of this type. When you’re dealing with nerves and things like that, even the best doctors in the world aren’t always sure what’s going to happen. He’s really tough and the guy has fighting spirit. He’s going to be back at some point and hopefully sooner rather than later.”
Daniel Bryan’s injuries include issues with both his neck and his arm. The former injury is what has been keeping him from the ring for the longest time, but the WWE confirmed that Bryan will need surgery for his arm. The reason the arm injury is such an issue is because the nerves can potentially cause his limb to lose its strength in the middle of doing a big move, which could potentially harm another wrestler by accident.
As for The Undertaker’s return to the WWE, Kane is not so certain it will actually happen.
“I don’t know. You know, I don’t know. He’s one of the greatest competitors of all time. I think what it’s going to come down to with ‘Taker is that if he believes he can perform at the level he wants to perform at. That’s going to be the determining factor. That’s going to be for him to decide and no one else.”
Kane also spent some time in the interview discussing some Halloween topics. His character may be on the scary side, but Kane admits, “I’d say there has been other people besides me that have sent shivers up people’s spines.” Topping that list is of course The Undertaker, but he also believes Papa Shango and Damien Demento are enough to scare the life out of you. Of course, Bray Wyatt has plenty of time to up the ante on his creepiness factor, so perhaps that list will get a new addition in the future.
