Bray Wyatt def. Kane (Ring of Fire Match)
At The Biggest Party of the Summer, Wyatt proved that he may indeed be the slayer of demons by defeating Kane inside a flame-engulfed squared circle. It didn’t matter that the Ring of Fire Match was designed to keep The Wyatt Family from interfering, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan eventually found a way to ensure Wyatt’s victory.
Though Kane was born in flames, the fire didn’t faze Bray Wyatt in his debut match. Nevertheless, The Big Red Monster was relentless in his quest for retribution against his opponent. The Ring of Fire’s purpose and power was displayed early on as Harper and Rowan tried to enter the ring, only to be prevented by the flames that shot into the air. The elemental danger of the environment was also on display – every time Kane or Wyatt executed a powerful maneuver, flames would suddenly erupt.
Kane maintained momentum throughout the battle, dominating the ambitious and cryptic newcomer as Harper and Rowan frantically tried everything to get inside the ring. An attempt to get a Kendo stick to Bray Wyatt failed when the stick caught fire and one of the firefighters at ringside extinguished the flaming foreign object.
With seemingly nothing stopping him, The Big Red Monster continued to dismantle Wyatt. Following two huge chokeslams, The Devil’s Favorite Demon channeled his brother, The Undertaker, and gestured for a Tombstone Piledriver. However, Harper and Rowan finally overcame the flames using an asbestos blanket and were able to attack Kane.
Attempting to fight them off, Kane was eventually overwhelmed and decimated by Bray Wyatt’s powerful family members. The referee was powerless to stop the match – a victory could only be determined by pinfall or submission. This allowed Wyatt to grab Kane and execute his signature maneuver to secure the victory.
Following the match, Wyatt retreated to his rocking chair and watched as Harper and Rowan used two sets of steel steps to smash Kane’ skull. The lantern-wielding Superstar, with Harper and Rowan in tow, then carried an unconscious Kane away from the STAPLES Center.
