At RAW 1000, just as Kane was about to be attacked by Jinder Mahal, Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins, Drew McIntyre, and Hunico the Undertaker came out to save Kane. The five mid card superstars claimed that they had not received ANY opportunities dating back to the first episode of RAW. Both Kane and Undertaker laid waste to all five jobbers before doing their trademark taunts as the crowd chanted "This is awesome!".
Oddly enough though, this entire segment made absolutely NO SENSE storyline wise. Right off the bat, the jobbers reasons for attacking Kane made no sense. What does Kane have to do with them not receiving any opportunities? Wouldn't that be the General Managers fault? Also, wasn't Curt Hawkins a former tag team champion with Zack Ryder? Wasn't Drew McIntyre told by Vince McMahon that he was the "chosen one" early on in his WWE career? Also, I don't think any of these superstars were even in the WWE before 2006 so their claim that they had not received any opportunities since the first episode of RAW (which was in 1993) made no sense either. Curt Hawkins was about 8 years old when the first episode of RAW aired.
Here's the real part that made no sense at all about this. Why did the Undertaker help Kane? Am I the only one that remembers that the last time the Brothers of Destruction were together, that Kane left the Undertaker in a vegetative state, turned Paul Bearer against the Undertaker, and buried the Undertaker alive with the help of the Nexus? So, this whole segment from top to bottom really made absolutely zero sense. I mean I get that it's the 1000th episode of RAW and they're trying to be nostalgic, but there were better ways to reintroduce the Brothers of Destruction in a way that didn't completely contradict their own story arcs.
