When Kane failed to come out for the main event of the night, we knew he'd show up at the end. It was a given, and we were fine with it.
We were treated to a very standard but still effective three-on-two handicap match, even though the faces were the team with more men, and when Henry and Show were eliminated we waited for Cena and Ryder to win the match.
And they did. And then we waited for Kane's music to hit. And it did.
And then Kane pops out through the floor and grabs Zack, trying to pull him down to hell. And John Cena dives to save his friend, starting a tug of war against the Big Red Machine. All goes according to plan.
But then something odd happens: Cena manages to save Ryder, and after several seconds the hole Kane emerged from explodes in a pillar of fire.
So...what was the whole point of that?
If Kane had managed to drag Ryder down with him and then the fire erupted, it would've been a perfect end to a show where another potential show ender was subjugated to a pointless half-time filler spot, and it would have helped build up the Cena/Kane feud.
But no, instead SuperCena saved Ryder from Kane in a pointless end to the show.
Just what was the point of that struggle if Cena saved Ryder and all was well? What did this achieve with the Cena/Kane story? How does this help Ryder in any way?
Just what was the whole point of this ending?
