Kane gets on the mic and he tells his big brother that on Sunday, whatever part of the dark side remained with him, he could not stop him. He took everything Taker gave him and he left a pile of ruins. He showed that he was the dominant brother when he dropped his brother on his head and crushed his skull. Taker knows better than the weak and pathetic people here or watching on television. What makes the Undertaker weak and pathetic is his fear. Kane says that he can smell it from here. The closer he gets, the stronger the odor. Kane goes into the crowd. He says that it is all around him. The stench of fear permeates this arena. Everyone in here is afraid. Afraid of the unknown and failure. Most of all, you are afraid of what he is capable of. Knowing that no one can stop him any more, makes him the living breathing embodiment of his fear. The one thing that Undertaker desires the most in his life is that he disappears and goes away. This monster is not going anywhere. Later tonight, he has a challenge for the Undertaker that he will not allow him to deny.
This past Sunday, he might have destroyed his body. Soon enough and on his own terms, he will destroy Taker’s legend and his soul.
