Fresh off their monumental reunion, The Shield looked to make their mark on this past week’s edition of RAW. While Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins defended their gold against Cesaro and Sheamus, Roman Reigns faced the Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman, inside a Steel Cage.

Although things started off well for the reunited Hounds of Justice, by the end of the evening their plans had quite literally gone up in smoke. And the man responsible for all of this was the returning Kane.

In one of the most shocking moments we have seen all year, the Big Red Machine tore through the ring mat and destroyed Roman Reigns with two Chokeslams and a Tombstone Piledriver. Not only was it an epic moment, but it allowed Kane to prove that even after all this time, he still makes the best returns.

It was Completely Unexpected

In today’s day and age, it’s almost impossible to avoid spoilers. Thanks to the growth of social media and the internet in general, fans manage to be kept up to date on virtually everything.

For example, whenever a wrestler gets injured or takes an extended hiatus, we are able to follow their progress online and get medical updates. Thus, most of time, their eventual return is somewhat spoiled by the fact that we practically saw it coming.

This has made it hard for anything to really surprise us anymore. But Kane’s return surprised us.

We haven’t seen the Devil’s Favorite Demon since he defeated Luke Harper on SmackDown LIVE back in November last year. After an extended absence, we then found out that he would be running for Mayor in Knox County, Tennessee, and with that, we presumed that his wrestling career was on indefinite hiatus. Whether or not he had retired remained a question, but it’s safe to say that we never dreamed that he would be showing up on RAW of all places.

The sheer surprise of his return was undoubtedly a welcome throwback to the “good old days” of WWE – and the fact that it was a veteran like Kane who was returning made the moment all the more old school.

It Paid Tribute To His Debut

On October 5, 1997, a silent monster made his way down the aisle and ripped the door of the Hell In A Cell structure – Tombstoning the Undertaker. In October 2017, just after celebrating his 20th anniversary, that monster returned – rising up through the floor during a Steel Cage match to Tombstone the man who defeated the Undertaker.

Kane’s debut is, without a doubt, the greatest in WWE history, and it was only fitting that on the month of his 20th anniversary, WWE paid tribute to the moment by having the Big Red Machine return in similar fashion. And it proved that no matter what era we are in, Steel Cages still can’t stop the wrath of Kane.

Two decades into his WWE career, and Kane proved that nobody can make a return quite like the Big Red Machine. From the shock of its unpredictability to the spectacle of the return itself, the veteran’s comeback was undoubtedly one of the best we have seen in a very long time. And the fact that it paid tribute to what is arguably the greatest debut of all time made it all the more epic.
