Kane and Undertaker reflect on Austin.
 Well, it wasn't exactly stunning that Stone Cold Steve Austin regained the WWF World title.

But it was won with a Stunner.

Kane, the little brother of the Undertaker, had the guts to face Austin in a rematch, when neither WWF owner Vince McMahon or manager Paul Bearer wanted the match to take place.

With a nod of the head, Kane accepted Austin's challenge of Monday's RAW, and the match ended the live broadcast from Cleveland, Ohio.

Kane now joins Bret 'The Hitman' Hart in the 'WWF Title-Holders For One Day' club. The match itself didn't compare to Sunday night's wild affair at King of the Ring. But really, what could.

Undertaker made his presence known towards the end of the match, despite a stern warning from Mr. McMahon that there would be trouble if he got involved. For his efforts, Austin gave him a stunner too.

As the show went off the air, it appeared that Undertaker and his brother Kane may reunite, both targeting the lone wolf Austin.


In a related note, we asked in a poll who would dethrone Kane, expecting full-well it would be Monday on RAW. Undertaker won with 54%, but didn't get the gold. Austin was second with 38%. Vince McMahon had 4% of the votes, The Rock and Mankind both 2%.
