KANE – A New Beginning or The End?
Notwithstanding my own prejudiced feelings concerning The Kane character, I will be very disappointed if tonight’s RAW Nielson Rating didn’t rise. I felt that there was a definite interest among WWE fans in the outcome of The Main Event. Kane versus HHH, mask versus The World Championship.
Kane’s string of bad luck began long before he broke the mirror on the wall of Madison Square Gardens this evening. Admit it or not, the primary factor in Kane’s creation, and the Paul Bearer character as well, is none other than The Undertaker. Kane and Paul Bearer were always around only to support The Undertaker character. When The UT evolved into The American Bad Ass, the writing was on the wall for Kane and Bearer.
It was accepted that the Bearer character was always disposable from the get-go. However, Kane was always the superior athlete, and had the potential to be nothing but pure box office dollars. With Mark Calaway’s big boot resting on the bar, Kane had a snowball’s chance in hell of any type of character elevation. Glen Jacobs was indeed treated like the red headed stepchild, while big brother got the big paydays and the glory. This is one time, that I hope I am dead wrong. I sincerely feel that this is not a new beginning for Kane; it is the continuance of the road to the end.
My website and message board was filled with Kane fans this evening, hoping that the face they saw under the black and red mask wasn’t Glen Jacobs. Unfortunately, it was Glen, without a doubt. The Kane character has been used, abused, and kicked to the side, by writers that didn’t have a damn clue of what to do with him. So tonight, they took the easy way out.
The real sad part about it all is that Glen doesn’t deserve any of it. He is 100% a company man, and will do anything they ask of him. He is dedicated to protecting our industry, and has always done everything that he could to help the younger guys climbing the ladder behind him. He is a family man, a true athlete, and a friend.
I always try to give the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they have some super kayfabe plan to raise Kane. I hope so, because tonight I feel just like many of the rest of you. ROBBED!
