If you had told me a month ago that Kane would once again be relevant in WWE, I would have said that you were crazy. However, as of late, Kane has been totally awesome.
I like how a majority of WWE fans groaned when Kane was added to the WWE title feud between CM Punk and Daniel Bryan. Now it seems like he is supposed to be there.
When you break all of the sections down, Kane always had the tools. He is huge, a decent wrestler and has a long history of loyalty to WWE. However, in recent years he has been nothing but a watered-down version of “The Big Red Machine.”
Now, Kane is consistently delivering in the ring. He is constantly having good to great matches. Plus, he has proven the naysayers like me wrong who said that he wouldn’t be able to hang with CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.
There is another element to this equation and that is AJ, who has been absolutely awesome in her role. The “crazy chick” character has been a great foil for all three characters.
Kane has been able to benefit the most, though. We have been able to see the confused monster portion of his character which is entertaining and comical at the same time.
Kane is in his mid-40s, and you would never think it considering how well he has been performing as of late. I would love to see his character continue to develop and maybe make another championship run.
With the absence of The Undertaker, Kane is one of the few established names left on the WWE roster. He should continue to be treated with respect and used in a role that can help the company in the weeks and months ahead.
