The two superstars battled it out on the apron as Bryan slung Kane off the ropes and through the table below.
A couple of ring workers were kneeling down ringside during the spot, so Kane wasn’t on fire for more than a few seconds. Their presence spoiled the spot, but it was still surprising to see in the PG Era.
