Why Cena/Kane/Ryder Finished This Week’s WWE RAW

Justin LaBar

The angle with Kane coming from under the ring was written about a week ago, but officials didn't know how they would get to it until the day of the show. The six-man elimination match was a last minute segment put together on the script.

Officials wanted John Cena in the closing segment so there would be what was described as an "Indiana Jones-like" cliffhanger to end the show according to PWInsider.com. The feeling was that the CM Punk segment wouldn't be exciting enough and Chris Jericho's return wouldn't be a good way to end the show.
