Following this week's WWE Main Event broadcast and prior to the start of the SmackDown taping, Kane came out wearing his mask. He beat down Big Show, who had just scored a victory during the Main Event portion of the taping. Kane took Big Show in the ring and hit him with his trademark chokeslam. He wasn't done there, however, as he continued the prolonged beat down by smashing the steel steps from ringside onto Big Show.

WWE confirmed that Triple H will be appearing on this week's edition of WWE SmackDown. HHH is scheduled to address what went down on Monday's RAW between the reunited Evolution group and The Shield.
