I know he's done it before. It's more like a 96% of the time rule. Every once in a while, they want something different to happen after the match, but still want Kane to win. So he blows the ringposts beforehand.
"You gotta hate somebody before this is over. Them, me, it doesn't matter."
"Hate, who do I hate? You tell me."
"Who do you love?"

As usual, they played the WWE History Desire video before the tapings on Monday night. The typical crowd reactions were there: pops for Hogan, Rock, HBK, Andre, etc. One thing that surprised me was a fair amount of boos for Austin.
