With John Cena obviously moving on to The Rock and the road to WrestleMania, there is only one thing for the rest of the participants of that storyline to do. Kane needs to face Zack Ryder.

Let’s play the FEUD!

The best part of a possible feud between Kane and Ryder is that most of the story has already been explained. Everyone knows that Kane has been picking on Ryder to get to Cena, and making that into a feud is much simpler than anything the WWE would have done.

There is no direction for either man now that Cena has moved on—putting them together just makes sense. They need each other right now to be relevant during WrestleMania.

With the images of Ryder getting rolled off the stage in a wheelchair by Kane still fresh in the fan’s minds, this feud is still new enough to garner a match at WrestleMania.

It would keep Kane relevant and legitimize Ryder as a WWE superstar.

Since winning the U.S. Title, Ryder has been beaten and abused by Kane. This has many fans wondering if WWE will ever give the kid a serious chance to be a star again.

Rest easy WWE universe, a well done match with Kane at WrestleMania would further catapult Zack Ryder into the hearts of the fans. It would also show Vince McMahon that he could trust the star on a big stage, which will open up even more opportunities.

As for an aging Kane, there may not be many more WrestleMania’s left. You know he will be giving it his all and won't mind putting over a star.

With Ryder’s popularity and Kane’s overness with almost every single member of the WWE universe, this match has the potential to be a huge part of the show.

The crowd will eat this up.

With a storyline already in place, two stars not doing anything and the biggest stage in the history of wrestling, Kane vs. Zack Ryder at WrestleMania will be fantastic for the fans and for the WWE.
