Welcome to the WWE Times, I'm your writer, Rex Williams and I hope you enjoyed the PPV and RAW as much as I did.

What did you enjoy about each show? What didn't you enjoy about each show? Feel free to discuss these questions in the comment section below.

On Issue No. 4 of The WWE Times, I'll look at what reduced me to tears (or near enough) when watching Money In The Bank 2010 and will incorporate a small section on wait the WWE should do with this storyline moving forward.

 

Kane Climbs Back To The Top!

On Sunday, July 18, we witnessed something special. Something, that was for me at least, highly emotional.

Kane reclaimed a World Championship by winning a eight-person Money In The Bank ladder match and cashing it in under one hour later on "The Master Of The 619," Rey Mysterio.

Now there will be people who are going to criticize WWE for giving Kane the World Heavyweight Championship. Oddly enough, these will be the same people that ranted for Kane to get one last championship before he retires.

Of course, the hypocrisy is double-sided. I was one of them that were pretty adamant that WWE should move away from the Kanes and Goldusts of WWE and be more youthful.

I was one of the people pushing Kane further away from his dream.

So now, you may ask why Kane winning the championship, something I thought I didn't want, reduced a grown man to tears.

Well, it's simple, he deserves it. I was too busy thinking about other people: the Dolph Zigglers and Cody Rhodeses of WWE.

I wanted them to win tonight and jump straight to the top. But they have a full career to get a championship reign that lasts longer than a day. Kane doesn't.

Kane deserved because as soon as the Undertaker and CM Punk return, he'll go back to being that guy that puts over younger talent.

And don't get me wrong, he loves it, but after 15 years of dedication (many of them wearing a mask), he deserved to get his thank you.

So we may have said Kane was too old to get one more reign, but he's never too old to be respected.

And I know that some of you will continue to criticise the WWE for having Kane as World Heavyweight Championship in 2010 and sure it should of happened sooner, but please respect him.

Give him this reign because we don't know how long it will last or how long Kane has left.

 

Moving Forward

Obviously, The Undertaker is hoping to return in time for Summerslam and the majority of people expect his opponent to be Kane after he admits to being his brother's attacker.

Now this would be predictable, but if Kane was going to retire at any time, when better than at the main event of Summerslam against his "brother" for the WHC? There is no better way, that's it.

Of course, 'Taker may not be 100 percent and if this is the case and if Punk is not ready to return, Kane could find himself facing Jack Swagger, Big Show or Rey Mysterio.

For me, I'd rather push Swagger than Rey or Big Show, but let's just say the attacker isn't any of them and is someone looking for revenge.

Over Memorial Day weekend, Stephanie McMahon was watching the kids as Triple H went on a plane to Texas "to visit Shawn."

Or at least that's what he says. In fact, while in Texas, he stopped by the Taker-McCool residency and decided to bring his trusted Sledgehammer with him.

When he saw 'Taker, he got angry that he retired his best friend at Wrestlemania. This lead to the obvious confrontation and come Friday night, Kane announced the Undertaker's "demise" to the WWE Universe.

Now, Triple H loves gold, right? After all he's a 13-time World champion, but he wants the championship once more. So, he appears on Smackdown and admits to taking out The Undertaker, to which sets up Kane versus Triple H at Summerslam.

Now as a WWE fan of both Swagger and Triple H, I mean no offence by saying I would rather see Triple H challenge Kane than Swagger.

After Summerslam, Triple H can win the World Heavyweight Championship or not, because it really doesn't matter, but moving forward The Undertaker will return and we will be setting the foundations for 'Taker vs. HHH at Wrestlemania 27, ten years on from their epic first encounter.

 

Feedback!

So what do you guys, think? Does Kane deserve the WHC or should some else have won Money In The Bank?

And what about the Undertaker? Who attacked him?

You can discuss all that and more in the comment section below. Negative and Positive feedback is welcomed.
