A funeral for The Undertaker
After burying The Undertaker alive at WWE Bragging Rights, Kane returned to SmackDown to inform the WWE Universe that they’d never see The Deadman again.

However, during a moment of silence for The Phenom, Alberto Del Rio interrupted, blatantly knocking Paul Bearer’s mystical urn to the mat. Moments after a conflict ensued, in which Del Rio took down the World Heavyweight Champion, Rey Mysterio emerged. Although Del Rio evaded the 619, The Ultimate Underdog dialed his favorite maneuver up on “The Father of Destruction.” Kane recovered and sent Mysterio from the ring, only to be Speared by Edge. Afterward, Long announced the Triple Threat No. 1 Contender’s Match between Del Rio, Mysterio and Edge to determine who would face The Big Red Monster at Survivor Series for the World Title.
