The Big Red Machine is also the Mayor of Knox County WWE teased that Kane could be a participant in the upcoming Royal Rumble match too.

That allowed Bayley to attack Evans from behind, and the two had to be separated by officials.

The match-up between the pair has been confirmed for this week’s SmackDown, and this could lead to Evans’ biggest win since coming to WWE.

In another major return, John Morrison will finally get a chance to showcase his abilities in the ring.

The Guru of Greatness made a shock return to WWE a couple of weeks ago and was by Miz’s corner in the previous SmackDown episode.
