Although this feud is still ongoing, it earns its title as the worst feud in Kane’s career.
It started on the December 12th, 2011 edition of WWE RAW, when Kane re-emerged with a new mask, and a new target: John Cena.
Kane interfered in a match that pitted John Cena against Mark Henry in the main event. Simple, logical booking would have had Kane attack the man who put him out for four months, Mark Henry.
But instead, Kane choke-slammed Cena and left him a broken heap in the middle of the ring. Kane explained that he was trying to persuade Cena to “embrace the hate,” the polar opposite of Cena’s “rise above hate” slogan that he instills in all of his Cenation followers.
They have been fighting over the past few weeks, and they met at the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble in a match that ended in a double count-out, a silly finish to say the least.
This feud will continue in the February pay-per-view Elimination Chamber in a Last Man Standing Match, and rest assured, wrestling fans will be overjoyed when this “dog” is finally put to sleep.
