How can anyone say that? You REALLY want Kane's victory to mean nothing and that Austin will come to Wrestlemania without winning the Rumble?
If anyone didn't need that victory- It was Kane. First- you don't need the "Respect" of winning the Rumble but losing the Wrestlemania match- That's what makes it important. And second- 12 years passed since that Rumble, and people are still talking about Kane in that match, so he didn't need that victory. The Rumble victory should go to the man that deserves it- And that was Austin.
The only reason why Kane's performance was awesome was because that was the booking. He never did anything great in this match- The bookers just have him eliminating 11 people and that what made him look good. Kane looked great in this match- But no one wanted to see him win. Everyone wanted to see Austin winning it because that was the real big thing.
