Here's what's going to happen in my opinion:
The feud will end (for now) at the HITC ppv, with Taker winning the strap off Kane (so I think Kane will beat Taker at NOC), with Paul Bearer making an appearance with the urn 'to give Taker power' (as he's selling the fact that he's weak after Kane's 'attack' at the moment). I can see an angle where Taker 'brings Bearer back from the grave' and re-unite both.
Kane will return at the Royal Rumble, win, and go on to headline Mania in a title match vs Taker, where he wins, therefore ending the streak and winning the title. Taker will then 'Rest in Peace' and retire. OR, Taker will win, and both will retire
