Re: Why does Kane get a free pass?

I'm not gonna be mad that Kane's moveset is limited. He's like fucking 46 or 47 years old.

Re: Why does Kane get a free pass?

I'm not even going to read through ten pages of uninformed nonsense in order to see if this has been brought up before, but wrestlers have only a handful of moves for a reason. It's psychology and marketing. Fans get behind what is familiar to them. If you can get a move over, you yourself will get more over. If you're focusing on getting over 4-6 moves, you're more likely to succeed. If you're doing a million moves, no one will give a damn about any of them. That's why wrestling moves with psychology get over with more people than those moronic matches with 1,000 different moves and spots that move at a hundred miles per hour and no selling whatsoever. All those matches and wrestlers do, is hurt the overall product and the fans desire to care.

Most of them do, but a lot of the still bitch about their jobs.

OP must be too young to have been watching Kane throughout his entire career. Glenn is a phenomenal physical performer. Look back to when he first came to WWE with the Kane gimmick. Yeah, he had Paul Bearer with him to help tell his story at first, but not for the whole time. How many other guys could have continue to get over while never saying a word? Kane could tell his story just with his eyes, and the physical motions of his body.

Kane has earned the respect of wrestling fans over the years through his performances in and out of the ring. He doesn't get a free pass. He reaps the benefits of years of hard work and respect. It has nothing to do with 5 moves of doom. Cena takes all the crap because he is the face of the company. That is all you need to know.

I can't really hate on a 46 year old who still works 180 shows per year.

Re: Why does Kane get a free pass?

1) He's not the TOP guy like Cena.

2) He's had character development unlike Cena.

Re: Why does Kane get a free pass?

I made an account on these forums for two reasons:
  1. To see if there was an option to disable signatures, which there is, thank fuck.
  2. To tell the OP that he is an idiot for thinking Kane gets a free ride. I would say he is probably the hardest working person in the industry and does whatever he can to promote and expand the business.

Re: Why does Kane get a free pass?

First of all, doesnt every wrestler have like the same 5 moves? That's like complaining about Randy Orton doing the second rope Ddt every match or his predictable Rkos...but does anyone complain about that? No...

Anyways Kane is amazing. Hes still like one of the only wrestlers that's still around and active besides maybe Taker or HHH who are around every blue moon..
Hes put in work over his many years and is still amazing at what he does so he deserves some credit and if he wants to do the same thing over and over then so be it. Who fucking cares..

Every Raw feels like deja vu with his move set. If I were Kane I would have said in 05 to Vince 'this non-masked thing aint working, I should go back to being the Big Red Machine'. Instead he just became complacent and happy to job to Mysterio and Khali. There's just no ambition to Jacobs.
Aside from the Snitsky comparison, I agree with you for the most part here. Kane was heavily over during his 2002-2003 feuds with Triple H, aside from, you know, the whole Katie Vick experience. He could've had a much better run as champion during this period, than his 2010 run. I don't really have a problem with his move set, but it'd be nice if he switched it up a bit more, maybe if he used some of his older power moves; 'Military Press', 'Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker', 'Running Power Slam', or even the 'Triple Backbreaker into a Power Slam' for when he's matched up against smaller guys. As far as complacency, maybe Glenn is just too humble for his own good? It's not necessarily a bad thing, but as a Kane fan, it does get a lil irksome at times.
