Whilst fans were touched by WWE’s tribute to The Undertaker at Survivor Series, one part left fans confused.
Everyone came to the ring in their normal clothes – except Kane.
The Big Red Machine was in full ring gear and wearing his signature mask.
Many speculated that it must have been a backstage rib, but it would seem there was a far more simple explanation.
Speaking on The Two Man Power Trip podcast, Kane explained it was the plan all along.
No, no, no. I was supposed to [be in ring gear]. Yeah, here’s the thing: Kane is Kane and despite different incarnations and all that, that was the reason for that because Kane and Undertaker I think, you know, pulled back the veil somewhat and sometimes we forget that.
But that’s kind of what separates them I think from a lot of the other formers is the fact that they’re truly characters and I know people speculated [but] that was the plan all along so, some of those things I think sometimes people [begin] speculating and outthink themselves a little too much into it.
This is one of those occasions in wrestling where the conspiracy theories far outreach the truth.
