Kane's gimmick could give us something we've been missing ...

I've been trying to get around to making this thread since this past Raw. I wasn't expecting to see Kane at all, and was definitely not expecting him to fuck up 6 different people. Seeing that, all I could wonder was why those random guys, and why so many of them? I know it can be attributed with Kane just being a malicious bastard who's always talking about hate, but I see something better brewing.

Pretty much, I see Kane continually attacking people, and giving his little monologues on embracing hate, but there's more that can be done with this: I could see this as the basis for a stable. Kane's going to keep doing what he's doing and, slowly, he'll start brainwashing guys on the roster with his rhetoric and by beating everyone down. First he'd get lower mid card heels, a few faces may turn, and after that two or three solid mid and upper mid card guys could join, and Kane's got himself a stable; the purpose of which is simply to get as many people to embrace hate as possible. Basically, Kane would be trying to spread his hate like a weed.

I wouldn't see it having the most epic roster, because I doubt WWE would want to play anyone in the main event being brainwashed/indoctrinated into Kane's way of thinking (except maybe Mark Henry b/c his gimmick could easily be tweaked only slightly and it would fit), but it could really end up being a stable with strength in numbers.

Thoughts?

tl;dr - Kane leads a stable by getting numerous guys on the roster to "embrace hate."

Re: Kane's gimmick could give us something we've been missing ...

It kinda sounds like the Diet Ministry of Darkness with zero calories, but I actually like the idea. It gives Kane something to do and makes him seem like a legitimate threat with his flunkies hanging out around ringside, and it could give a bunch of the lower card guys an actual role. Besides, it wouldn't be a permanent character for the underlings - the APA was in the Ministry, and they went back to their normal beer-swilling selves once the group ended.


God, this third hour of Raw really drags...

Could be interested and bring some life back into the mid-card. Decent idea OP.

I was like nine when the Ministry was around, and don't remember it too well, so you're probably right lol. I more or less see it as a way to occupy a good number of guys on the roster, and create a force to be reckoned with. If they get the numbers, there's no need to have either of the World Champions involved. Maybe the IC or US champ, and whoever may be the tag champs (maybe bring back the Freebird rule, even?)

They didn't use my idea of shaving Ryders head and putting a big ass dragon tattoo on his bald dome, then have him be Kanes disciple of hate. Oh well.

Re: Kane's gimmick could give us something we've been missing ...

Seems like a interesting Idea...Something simliar to Taker's Ministry. But what would be the Ultimate Goal of Kane's "Stable"? Taking over the WWE? Or would WWE screw the Storyline and make Nexus V3 out of it?

Everything, in this scenario, can be traced back to Kane believing EVERYONE needs to embrace hate. The goal would be to infect as many people as possible with this idea. Basically a huge heel faction. But odds are WWE would screw it up by not feeding anyone major into this group (I think eventually it would need at least one over upper mid card face to be turned by Kane, personally).

He would gain so much heat if he turned Brodus. Kane's group gets over and WWE drops the Funkasaurus gimmick in a sensible way. It's win/win for them.

Re: Kane's gimmick could give us something we've been missing ...

It sounds good. It keeps Kane relevant, carries on the 'Rise above Hate' storyline. Helps gets random guys over.

This could be a way, and a reason to bring more intensity to some guys who need to start showing it. This could work well with someone like Drew. He needs a snap change where he breaks away from his nice guy gimmick. Kane's stable of hatred could be a legitimate play to make this happen and suddenly, without much need for a long winded turn.

Where does it all lead to, what's the ultimate goal of the stable?

What is the exact process of Kane turning people in PG land?

How long does that process take?

Who's going to take down this evilness and put a stop to the madness?

How long does this thing run for in total?
