Kane made his debut all the way back in 1997. Crazy isn't it? Time flies when you're watching wrestling. He was billed as The Undertaker's demonic brother and there would be an eerie feeling whenever he'd make his way to the ring, similar to the cryptic feeling that fans get when Bray Wyatt makes his entrance. The difference was that "The Big Red Machine" was near 7 feet tall and jacked out of his mind. He also sported a cool looking mask to hide his face that was burned in a fire (in the storyline). Everything about him was scary, but sadly the aura has dissipated over the years, as he's been involved in many foolish scenarios.
We won't go as far as saying that WWE killed his character, as there does need to be a few gimmick changes over an 18+ year career. However, as fans, we couldn't help but collectively roll our eyes when the WWE brass decided to end "Night of Champions" with the return of "Demonic Kane." He's being tabbed as Seth Rollins' next opponent and no one in their right mind believes for one second that Kane will ever be champion again, so it's a pointless storyline. More importantly, Kane's gimmick has been flipped and flopped so much (literally, he even changes character mid-show now), that no one really cares anymore. He's also been involved in so many goofy circumstances that he simply cannot be viewed as "scary" either. This is not to say that he can't be useful on RAW, but the "Big Red Monster" gimmick is stale and unmoving. Now, in honor of Kane coming back as "Demonic" Kane, let's go over the top 15 dumbest Kane moments!
15 15. He Suddenly Could Speak Perfectly
14 14. Kane Says "Suck It"
13 13. Kane Graduates From Anger Management
Team "Hell No" (Kane and Daniel Bryan) was extremely entertaining. They'd bicker back and forth and both maintain: "I'm the Tag Team Champions!!" It was refreshing to watch, but it also continued to further Kane's goofball aura as his scary days were all but gone. All ridiculousness ensued when Kane and Daniel Bryan "graduated" from Anger Management. They even had a hokey and annoying dude present them with their diplomas. It couldn't get much worse, right?
12 12. He was "Fake Diesel"
11 11. The Isaac Yankem Gimmick
10 10. Kane Attempts To Marry Lita
For the record, the worst "wedding" of all-time still goes to Test and Stephanie McMahon, hands down. He walked to the alter with his entrance music blaring and was sweating profusely because he had just competed an hour prior to the "nuptials." The entire thing was nauseating and it's surprising Triple H didn't become an instant face for interrupting that debacle.
9 9. Kane Interrupts Edge And Lita's Wedding
8 8. Kane Tries To Electrocute Shane McMahon's Privates
7 7. Kane-Anites
6 6. Corporate Kane
5 5. Concessions Kane
4 4. Kane Dances
3 3. Kane Burns J.R.
2 2. Kane Gets Unmasked
WWE spent much of Kane's career hiding his face under the premise that it was burned in a fire as kid. It was actually pretty cool. Kind of like on the show Home Improvement where the neighbor would always hide his face behind the fence.
1 1. Katie Vick
If you're reading this article and disagreed with every single pick, you will surely agree with this one, as it's unanimously the dumbest (and most repulsive) Kane angle of all time. It may even be the most regretful storyline in wrestling history (it's a tie between this and May Young giving birth to a hand).
This was an angle that involved manslaughter and necrophilia. It's tough to believe that the current PG brand of wrestling went down this road. Triple H cut a promo where he talked about one of Kane's past lovers named Katie Vick. He then went on to talk about an occasion where Kane was driving Katie home from a party and got into a car accident, leaving him with a broken arm but that killed Katie instantly (it's about to get way worse). Triple H then said that Kane truly loved Katie. But when the autopsy came back, it revealed that Kane's semen was in her. What followed was maybe the most line-crossing comment ever as Triple H matter-of-factly asks: "did you force Katie to have sex with you while she was alive, or did you wait and do it to her when she was dead?"
Gassssssssp, yeah they went there, and then went a step further. Triple H actually did a re-enactment of Kane's love affair with Katie Vick, where he was in a funeral home thrusting inside a coffin. Triple H has gone on record saying that it was the most uncomfortable thing he's even done in his career because of the absurdity and because they were in an actual funeral home when shooting. He also said that Vince McMahon was not happy with the first take and commanded him to "THRUST HARDER!"
