I felt bad that Kane never got any sort of proper send-off into retirement/politics/accounting... we don't need him in the main event scene BUT if the reason he's there is to get revenge on Roman for retiring his brother, that's an acceptable storyline. Then he can go climb back under the ring and live out his Libertarian dreams.
I'm of the same mind and thought his last world title reign was his victory lap and his best overall work, a high-note to go out on. And I think as of this month he hits TWENTY YEARS in the gimmick. Man.

This feels like one of those times that the E has fallen ass-backwards into something that follows internal logic. Kane's not an exciting or inspiring choice, but any exciting or inspiring choice here would just be getting a rough deal - since this match basically only exists to make the Shield (and Roman by extension) look good.
The show was okay. I'm ashamed to admit that I enjoyed heel Enzo's antics. Elias and Good Brothers were gold. Insane Alicia Fox is the best Alicia Fox. The rest felt like a large nothingburger.
The less said about Finn/Bray the better.
