The saga that has so many twists and turns that it would confuse a genius, the Undertaker and Kane storyline has been going on since 1997 and a year hasn't gone by where there has not been some kind of interaction between the two Goliaths of the squared circle.
Over the years they have had just about every kind of battle that you could imagine. Some of the match types include Inferno match, Hell in a Cell match, and now we finally get prepared for the Buried Alive match. They have also wrestled at Summerslam, Wrestlemania twice, and several other pay-per-view events.
But the question here is: What will happen this Sunday? Is this the end of the "never-ending saga?" If this isn't, then when will it end?
It is obvious that both men are on the road to retirement. Rumors have been swirling for years that both men were thinking about hanging it up. The resurgence of Kane's character over the last year has led me to believe that he may be just hitting his peak.
The Undertaker, however, looks slower each time he is out there. Don't get me wrong. The guy busts his ass to put on the best performance that his body allows, but how much longer can he really do this?
I assume that WWE wants The Deadman fresh for Wrestlemania 27. This leads me to believe that somehow, someway, The Undertaker will get buried alive once again this Sunday at Bragging Rights.
He will proceed to take time off just in time for a build-up to the biggest show of the year where he will once again be victorious.
Kane would go on to feud with Edge and eventually drop the title to the newly turned babyface. When have we seen Edge hold the title as a "good guy?" It hasn't been done and with the steam behind him, this could be the time to do it.
The match could go in the other direction as well. If WWE wants Undertaker to roll into Wrestlemania as the World Heavyweight Champion this year to add extra drama to his match, this would be the time to defeat Kane once and for all.
Kane has been going full speed ahead for the majority of his run at the top of the Smackdown roster. The Big Red Machine could possibly be ready to take a little break from the road. I assume that WWE would also want him healthy and ready for a big match at Wrestlemania 27.
Odds are that The Undertaker allows Kane to finally win this feud and end this saga once and for all. Could there be an ultimate rematch at Wrestlemania in one last war to settle the score? I hope not, but I am positive that WWE would consider it.
The possibilities are endless. Regardless of what transpires, this saga could finally come to an end at Bragging Rights. One man will stand alone as World Heavyweight Champion and the other will go home and heal his wounds for a while before a huge return heading into Wrestlemania.
