Joshua Caudill of Crave Online recently interviewed Kane about the upcoming WWE Studios movie Countdown. You know, the one where Dolph Ziggler superkicks a gun-wielding Rusev. During the interview, Kane shared a perfectly delightful anecdote from the making of the film.
CraveOnline: Did you have any favorite moments from the set of Countdown?
Kane: Yeah, there's this scene, where I am shooting Dolph with a shotgun with beanbags. He tried to escape and jumps over the railing and jumps on to a guy who's cleaning the windows in the inside of the building and that's how he escapes. He goes down 10 stories or whatever. This was retribution because earlier I had caught Dolph's character and had him up against the wall and he kicks me in the groin to get away. As retribution, I shoot him in the groin with the beanbag shotgun. They're presenting this scene to us and I'm looking at Dolph and saying ‘this is going to be really bad.'
They bring the stunt guys out with the apparatus and it's essentially a shotgun but all of the guts have been taken out of it and it's powered by air and they put this beanbag in it and it looks like it is going 3 miles per hour. It's barely moving so we all thought it wouldn't do anything. I didn't shoot the beanbags but the stunt guys did. They put a cup on Dolph and some protection on him like a catcher's vest. [Laughs] I'll be darned, when the guy shot the beanbag into his groin, it looked like it was a tomahawk missile. Of course, when the movie was all edited together with the cuts and everything, it looks great. I think that will be one of the scenes that people remember the most from the movie.
I think I speak for WWE fans everywhere when I say I cannot wait to see a movie where Dolph Ziggler gets shot in the groin.
The entire interview is a lot of fun, so head on over to Crave Online to check it out for yourself.
