This would be a pretty smart way to go about things, especially if WWE doesn't want or need Braun Strowman taking another pinfall loss (which they don't) and they need someone who can take the pin like Kane (which they do).

We'll just have to see how things transpire in the weeks to come, but for now, it looks like both Kane and Strowman punched a ticket to Suplex City with that double count-out no-finish on Raw this week.
