The Wyatt Familt attacked Kane on the Monday Night Raw debut
Kane has become the first victim of WWE's eerie new trio.
The Big Red Monster pinned fellow Money in the Bank All-Stars combatant Christian on Monday Night Raw in Baltimore, Maryland, but was then swiftly floored by the debuting Wyatt Family.
The lights in the 1st Mariner Arena cut out after Kane had despatched Captain Charisma, and Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, whose peculiar vignettes have played on Raw in recent weeks, appeared from the darkness.
Harper and Rowan proceeded to smash the Devil's Favourite Demon around with the steel steps while Wyatt gazed at the carnage from a rocking chair, but the group's sermon-spewing leader then rose from his seat and knelt before the stricken Kane.
Vickie Guerrero, meanwhile, was axed from her role as Managing Supervisor of Raw following an in-ring job evaluation from Triple H, Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon, resulting in her assistant, Brad Maddox, being named as the red brand's new General Manager.
Daniel Bryan showed how fired up he is for Sunday's Money in the Bank All-Stars encounter, firstly by defeating Sheamus - the man he lost to in 18 seconds at WrestleMania 28 - and then gate-crashing the final moments of Raw.
The submission specialist rushed to the squared circle after CM Punk had vanquished Randy Orton, hitting The Second City Saint with a cavalcade of kicks, bludgeoning The Viper with a ladder and then plucking the briefcase which hovered above the ring.
Elsewhere, John Cena and Mark Henry's face-to-face showdown ended in chaos when The World's Strongest Man flattened his rival with a World's Strongest Slam, just six days before their bout for the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank.
Curtis Axel suffered his first reverse since becoming a 'Paul Heyman Guy', bested by Chris Jericho after being distracted by match guest commentator The Miz, while an appearance from Dolph Ziggler led to Alberto Del Rio and Sin Cara's clash ending in a double count-out.
Plus, Shield members Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns saw off the titanic tandem of Tons of Funk, and the Divas tag-team duel between Kaitlyn and Layla and AJ Lee and Alicia Fox was rendered a no contest when Kaitlyn shellacked Lee with a devastating ringside Spear.
