The Character of Kane

Okay guys what do you think of the character of Kane?

I think of it like a pendulum, swinging from evil red monster persona to the comic face persona.

When he first debuted as Kane back in the day (Hell in the Cell) , he was a full on "evil" heel. Around until he had to unmask for the very first time.

Later on he became somewhat of a face. (Him doing the Santino trombone impression comes to mind)

Then, returning after a leave of absence, he was a full on "evil" heel again with the "Embrace Hate" catchphrase during his feud with John Cena.

And now with Daniel Brian as the tag champions; in such skits as "anger management" or "I want to go to Disneyland!" or the restaurant skit with Dr Shelby and Bryan he has once again become a comic face.

What do you think of his character's evolution over the years since his debut ?
What type of character do you think suits him the best?
What are your all time favorite Kane moments ?

Re: The Character of Kane

Kane is the 110% most underrated superstar EVER. His ability to swtich between heel and face so much is crazy... And hes entertaining no matter what... Personally i liked the orignal persona... Undertakers brother, ripping the gate off, unstoppable monster ....

In my opinion he is the best worker in the WWE, his current run is some of his best work ever.. But when hes in the ring, its always fun to watch.. He makes everyone look good around him... Besides Undertaker, idk if theres any better men of their size, as far as in ring ability. Hes just great t everything... He can play a monster heel, face, psychopath, he can be hilarious.. Hes fallen in love on camera more then anyone else, lol . Kanes just fuckin awesome. He gets alot of hate for no reason..

My #1 favorite thing about Undertaker, is that he gave us Kane. And i mean that

Current Favorites : The Shield, Damien Sandow, Dolph Ziggler, Jinder Mahal , Hunico , Kane , Daniel Bryan , Mark Henry , Orton, Heel Punk.

All Time Faorites Jerico, Goldberg, Piper, Lesnar, RVD, Kurt Angle, Dudley Boyz, The Rock, Kevin Nash , Hulk Hogan , Billy Gunn,

Re: The Character of Kane

I've always liked Kane, and consider him one of my favoite wrestlers of the attiude era. But at the same time, i've always been disappointed as well. He seems to go from hot to cold so much, and I don't know why that is. They have a great character and gimmick, it's not that hard to book him as a monster. Yet they constantly do things like put him in tag teams that should never have happened and making his character silly and ridiculous. He should be booked like the Undertaker, an unstoppable monster who has no emotions and a no bullshit attitude. But I guess there wouldn't be much room for character development if he was booked like that. Still though he should have been booked more serious and stronger throughout his career, to the point where he'd be on Undertaker/Triple H/John Cena level.

Favorite Wrestlers Of All Time - The Undertaker, The Rock, Chris Jericho and Edge

Re: The Character of Kane

I've always been a fan of Kane since the very beginning. Especially around 2001-2002. He is a tireless performer, always willing to put young talent over, never complains about being a part of shitty storylines (of which there have been many) and for his size, is a tremendous worker. TBH during his recent feuds with Orton and Cena, I kinda had enough of him, but he has reinvented himself superbly with this partnership with D Bry and I'm enjoying the "hell" out of it. Those therapy sessions in particular were gold to watch and they have fantastic chemistry.

Re: The Character of Kane

The thing about Kane is that no matter what he's always stayed interesting to me. Even now, his stuff with Bryan is fantastic and hilarious. Reminds me of his odd pairing with X-Pac.

Re: The Character of Kane

Next time Kane turns evil, I wish they would give him a run at the title and become unstoppable.

Re: The Character of Kane

Kane is one of the most underrated all-around wrestlers ever.

I accept rep.

Headbanging is crucial.

Re: The Character of Kane

Kane is just Kane. He is neither heel nor face, he has tendencies towards both. He is just Kane. One of the most interesting characters they've ever created.

Will mark for Father Ted references.

Re: The Character of Kane

Kane is one of my favorite wrestlers, and he is my wife's favorite wrestler. I think he is one of the best all around performers IMO. He can do anything that is put in front of him.
