This is a huge disappointment for fans of the Big Red Machine, but it's not like he was a betting favorite anyhow.
I'm sure the 46-year-old's body is grateful Kane was booked as the Wyatt Family's first victim.
One of the burning questions (pun intended) heading into the Money in the Bank pay-per-view is who—if anyone—will replace the Undertaker's kayfabe sibling in the "All-Stars" ladder match.
Kane's replacement will almost definitely be a returning superstar. With Rob Van Dam's much-anticipated return taking place in the same match, it will be interesting to see how bold WWE are in the choice of a seventh participant.
Will Kane's replacement steal some of RVD's (Rolling) thunder?
Could the mystery man have a legitimate chance to win the WWE Championship contract?
Well, it depends on who steps up.
Let's peruse the possibilities, shall we?
