How would you bring back masked Kane?

Okay, I know this is gonna get a lot of heat, but here's how they could do it in order to make me mark out like a little bitch:

Undertaker returns and wants revenge for being buried alive. He wants a rematch of the buried alive match. But this buried alive match will be different. This grave will be covered in flames and the loser will burn before being buried alive.

On PPV, Undertaker and Kane go all out trying to destroy each other. Taker wins by wrapping a bunch of chains around Kane to prevent him from defending himself. He then chokeslams Kane into the fiery grave. A microphone will be planted so we can hear Kane's screaming in pain. The screaming will go on for 2-3 minutes. We'll hear Kane begging Taker to help get him out. He could even say, "Mark, help me!" to make it more sincere/real. The Undertaker looks down the grave, almost questioning if he's gone too far. He will consider trying to help his little brother, but just when we think Taker is showing a little bit of remorse, he'll change his mind and give the signal to have the dirt dumped on the grave.

Kane can then take a vacation for 3-6 months to get in shape, freshen up. I'd have him return wearing his full-body suit which wouldn't show any skin whatsoever. But I'd have wearing all black, maybe a very small amount of dark/blood red colour on the front of his attire. He'd also be covered in the same chains that the Undertaker wrapped around him before throwing him in the grave.

He'd come face-to-face with Taker, no-sell anything Taker tries to do, and leave him lying in waste. I'd have one big final blow-off match with some crazy stipulation where new Kane wins clean, Taker gives him the nod of respect, and Undertaker disappears again until the next WM.

Feud over forever, and fresh, new, more-badass-than-ever Kane that I can enjoy watching again.


How would you guys bring back masked Kane, or would you even want to?

I wouldnt bring him back at all. Anyone who checks my posting history knows my view on the initial run of the Big Red Machine, and THAT debut, but the key difference is that 15 years ago Glen Jacobs was way more athletic and mobile, so the character was far stronger as a result. Even if you give him 6 months off TV to grow his hair out, and bring him back trying to look like the original image, it just wont have anything like the same impact.

The thing about that is his athleticism wasn't really needed back then and wouldn't be today. Go back and look at 'Taker in his first few years in WWF, he was presumably more atheletic than he was in the last few years but did far less; the same would be true for Kane if they were able to sell the idea that the mask made him feel invincible. He would be able to far less than he does now but what he did do would have more impact.

As I said before I'm not a fan of bringing it back at this stage in his career, he's 44 ffs, but I don't think his athleticism should be the deciding factor, there are better reasons not to do it imo.
Fair enough, but then ask when was the last time he did that top rope clothesline move, or compare his movement speed and intensity to how he was when he walked down to the HIAC and tore the door off before levelling everyone in sight. He might have basically stood in the middle of the ring while people bounced off him, but you always knew he had the ability to pull something vicious out of the locker.

We seem to be arguing basically the same opinion, so lets agree to differ slightly in our reasons.
