THIS is what I would like to see more of. This is up there with the Hulk Hogan/Richard Belzer incident or Lawler/Kaufman on Letterman. If two guys 'hate' each other, they should not be seen anywhere together without beating the crap outta each other.

Good job WWE!

See, that is all kinds of awesome. You give the people there who haven't seen WWE ever or according to the press release ever, something new. You also add a bit of realism to the feud as well as the unexpected. That is very good work on WWE's part.

I guess I maybe had certain expectations based on Cerebus' description but I find it laughable that the WWE has supposedly inserted "realism" into the least realistic (and worst, IMHO) major storyline they have put together in forever.

The best thing I can say about the Kane-Cena feud is it isn't as bad as the Kane-Edge and Kane-Undertaker feuds were in 2010. That said, this feud is Dungeon of Doom Vs Hogan bad. I'm looking forward to Kane and Cena getting into monster trucks and settling this feud once and for all or maybe not.

You know how there's a plausible case that Shawn Michaels had the WWE MOTY every year from 1991-1997 and 2002-2010? (The only year he doesn't really have a candidate in is '06.) I wonder how many worst feuds of the year Kane could rack up in a row.

2000 - feuding with Jericho over spilled coffee would be a stretch
2001 - Kronik feud wasn't that long, but he was adjacent to Undertaker/DDP
2002 - Triple H/Katie Vick
2003 - Shane McMahon
2004 - Matt Hardy/Lita
2005 - Snitsky/Lita's miscarriage
2006 - Fake Kane/May 19th
2007 - Big Daddy V
2008 - Rey Mysterio
2009 - Great Khali
2010 - Edge OR Undertaker
2011 - streak broken but maybe you can say the Cena feud started in 2011
2012 - Cena and what dreams may come?

I was quite excited by a Darth Kane vs Cena Skywalker feud at first and, to be fair to Kane, very little of the awfulness is his fault. If you can blame anyone other than the writers it'd be Eve. It's a shame there aren't 2 AJs to be cowering from giants on both shows.

I'll take this back if Eve is purposefully being really annoying until she reaches a point where Cena, tired of her blame-throwing snappiness, turns on Eve to figuratively "slaughter the younglings".

To be fair, I don't remember Kane vs. Big Daddy V at all - and it's entirely possible I ignored wrestling entirely that year - but I think Hornswoggle inherited Kane's role as the center of all bad feuds in 2007 and held onto it until he magically gained the power of speech in 2011, at which point Kane regained his place at the top/bottom.

I blame the lack of payoff to May 19th for this. As faithful, attentive audience members, we were robbed of the shocking but well-thought-out "Glenn Jacobs was the actor they hired to play Kane after they sent the Real Kane back to the asylum in 1999" reveal that we deserved.

I kept expecting Tom Cruise to appear on one of the windows behind them like Spider-Man.

Cena must have been been wearing those triggers on his feet that cause his theme music to play when he enters a room.

You guys are praising it's realness, but this feels faker and more scripted than anything I've seen on their TV shows.

(I wish we could have gotten a few more weeks of Punk crashing events like ComicCon last summer. Those were more entertaining.)

How could it be Worst Feud when that feud gave us the Wedding with Kane's Classical Music Theme and Trish in that bridesmaid's outfit?

I like the way Cena-Rock is going also, they are making it appear they really hate each other. However, I think Cena needs to take it to another level by saying, this isn't about entertaining the fans, it's about beating the Rock.

Kane is doing a great job considering his part of the angle will end at the next PPV. Next up for Kane will probably be Zach Ryder, although they would have to build Ryder up as a legit threat to Kane.

I was going to say, it felt a lot more real when Vader was choking out reporters. Hell, it felt much realer last year when CM Punk showed up at Comic Con with the belt to rub it in HHH's face. Though I have to admit, it was a cool visual seeing the conference with the view of Abu Dhabi in the background.

Frankly, it would had looked a lot better if Kane had attacked him from behind and they duked it out for a couple of seconds before the Attitude Adjustment instead of him standing around and flicking off Cena's cap while Cena's giving directions to the media and Punk to stay away from the table.

This is the correct opinion. Everything about Kane & Snitsky was gold- punting the baby, choose your weapon match at Taboo Tooesday, Snitsky asking if Kane was OK on camera after they both fell thru the stage.

And the best part is that Snitsky was totally right- what started the feud wasn't his fault.

Ryder pins Kane following Mania after he's had enough?

Seriously, the pop he'd get from not being a legit threat and winning would be bigger...
