Last night on Raw, Kane debuted a gimmick similar to TNA’s Abyss and Joseph Park, where he’s a monster when he’s in a mask but the Director of Operations when he’s not wearing one.
Kane returned at the Night of Champions pay-per-view with the mask and saved Seth Rollins from losing his WWE World Heavyweight title after Sheamus was about to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase. However after chokeslamming Sheamus, Kane turned his attention to Seth Rollins and chokeslammed him as well.
The man who portrays the Abyss gimmick, Christopher Parks, sarcastically wrote on Twitter that there are other people like him, obviously referring to WWE ripping off the TNA angle. “Wow it’s seems other families share the same problems my brother and I did!! Small world,” he wrote.
Kane appeared as the Director of Operations for several segments during the show and told Rollins and The Authority that he doesn’t know what they’re talking about when mentioning the mask. At the end of Raw, Kane showed up as the demon Kane and took Rollins with him after his loss against Cena.
