Most Notable Return: Kane

This week's most notable return was Kane. As Daniel Bryan was being attacked by The Bludgeon Brothers, Kane made his return to the WWE, making the save and preventing Harper & Rowan from seriously injuring Bryan. It seems Kane is back for a while as SmackDown Live General Manager Paige then announced that the reunited Team Hell No will challenge The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships at Extreme Rules.
