WWE: Why Kane Is a Future Hall of Famer

Michael PrunkaCorrespondent IJune 18, 2012

It is almost a given that Kane is a future WWE Hall of Famer. When it comes time, it wouldn't be surprising to see him as the marquee name in his Hall of Fame class.

Just by looking at his title reigns, he is certainly worthy of induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Throughout his WWE career, Kane has held the WWE, World Heavyweight and ECW Championships.

His most recent world title reign as World Heavyweight Champion was impressive. "The Devil's Favorite Demon" won Money in the Bank at the 2010 installment of the PPV and would cash-in the title shot that night. During his five month reign, Kane was victorious over the likes of Rey Mysterio and The Undertaker.

That said, his 20-year career isn't defined by the championships he won. Kane will go down in the history books as one of the most versatile wrestlers to ever step between the ropes.

The "Big Red Monster" is one if the few wrestlers that can freely move between the midcard and the main event scene. He is convincing in every role he plays.

This strength of Kane's has been very scorer in the past year. Upon retiring under the mask, Kane would compete in transitional feuds with John Cena and Randy Orton. In both instances, he would put over his opponents.

A few months down the road, Kane would find himself in the middle of the WWE Championship scene. He went into No Way Out as a believable threat to CM Punk and his reign as WWE Champion. Even though Punk pinned him in the Triple Threat match at the show, Kane is more than capable of bouncing back.

Kane doesn't need a belt on his shoulder or around his waist to prove his value to the WWE. He has been the go-to guy for the WWE for the majority of his two decades with the company.

That alone has guaranteed him a future spot in the WWE Hall of Fame. Take into account all of Kane's high-profile feuds and championship reigns over the past 29 years, and he's sure to be a marquee Hall of Famer.
