Kane won his match against Randy Orton at WrestleMania 28, but who really cares?  The match that they had was a solid one, in which we saw the moves we always see from these two superstars.

It was a match that was not needed.

What was the point?  Why even have this match in the first place?  There was no huge feud building between these two and in actuality Kane was probably only put on the WrestleMania card so that Randy Orton would have someone to wrestle against.

What has happened to Kane?  The big red machine had been slowly falling down the roster before he was injured awhile back, and when he returned he dawned an old school mask.  Many of us thought that Kane was back and in full monster form.

Oh how we were wrong.

The feud Kane had with John Cena when he first returned looked like it might have had the works to be a decent feud.  It of course fizzled out.  Kane was sent packing to start a meaningless feud with Randy Orton.

It seems as though the WWE has forgotten what type of monster Kane was when he first entered the WWE.  Debuting during the Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels Hell in a Cell match in 1997, Kane would cost his brother the match.

He was a monster of a man when he first debuted.  When he dawned the mask once again Kane should have returned to that status.

Kane seems to have lost the terror he used to invoke in the WWE.  Instead of coming back and being a contender for one of the WWE titles, or coming back and destroying a face wrestler and taking his role back as a monster heel, Kane has come back to simply be thrown into meaningless matches.

The squash match at WrestleMania 28 shouldn't have been between Daniel Bryan and Sheamus. Instead Kane should have squashed Randy Orton and showed the WWE Universe that he was a true monster by making the Viper fall right away.

He may have won at WrestleMania 28, but what was the point?  Without a real story and rivalry, Kane's latest run will continue to fall short.
