We are back and Kane is in the ring. Kane apologizes if he is having trouble getting around tonight. Seth got a little carried away last week and put him in an ambulance. He does not blame Seth because if he had a seven foot demon chasing him, he would be worried. Seth is in a bit of a predicament since Brock Lesnar attacked Seth’s partner in his match against the Dudleys.
Kane says Seth’s partner is him.
Seth Rollins comes out and he says that is not happening. Seth says that is not how this works Corporate Kane. Seth says he hates to break it to him, but you are no Tom Brady. Even though you both have deflated balls. You cannot lie, cheat, and swindle your way into getting what you want because it does not work for people like you. Seth says he is not playing into Kane’s mind games tonight or ever.
Kane says his coffee mug says ‘World’s Greatest Director of Operations’ and that is what he intends to be. To be the best Director of Operations is to bring out the best in you.
Seth says that he does not need Kane to bring out the best in him. The title belt proves that he is the best.
Kane says that he has a poster in his office that says nothing matter other than the man you see in the mirror. Kane says he wants to make Seth proud of the man he sees in the mirror. Sometimes to be the man around here, you have to go through HELL and see your DEMONS. That is what a poster in his office says.
Seth asks if facing his demons means taking Kane to hell right now?
Stephanie McMahon’s music plays and she comes out to the ring. She says she has tried to go through the proper channels. First you have Seth and his e-mail to Human Resources. Seth denies it and she tells him to give it up. Stephanie says that now Seth is insulting Tom Brady. Tom Brady is a team player who will lead the Patriots to the Super Bowl again.
Stephanie says there is only one way to settle this. At Hell in a Cell, the Demon will have his day when he goes one-on-one for the WWE Championship. Stephanie tells Kane if he feels that he can tape up his ankle to team with Seth against the Dudleys, go ahead.
Stephanie says there is one more thing. Stephanie tells Kane if Monster Kane does not beat Seth Rollins at Hell in a Cell, Corporate Kane will be relieved of his duties as Director of Operations.
Backstage: Seth is trying to plead his case with Hunter to say that Stephanie’s decision about Kane being Seth’s tag team partner is a bad idea.
