      Here's an idea. Since he is so weird and mysterious, why not book him like WCW did Sting near the end? Just have him be really creepy, sneaking around, hiding in the rafters-stype stuff. It could work. Especially since he is seen as a loner already. He could be secretly plotting something against Taker or anyone else for that matter.





    For some reason, I don't think the WWF/E should start putting guys in the rafters again.



Yeah yeah. That's why is said "type stuff" right after that. I KNEW somebody really intelligent would say something like that. Happens every time.

I hate to use a cliche but some people on this board seem to be getting really bad about missing the forest for the trees.

I'm with BigDaddyLoco on this, although I don't know how they could freshen his character up. He IS stale, but what do you do with a monster? Much less, a monster who has a hick accent, ever since they started letting him talk!

Maybe they should bring back the lightning bolts. Hurricane could make some stupid joke, and Kane could zap him

I think I've figured part of it out.

It seems really odd to me to see a guy in FREAKIN' BONDAGE STRAPS AND A MASK trying to be funny.

I always thought that the Kane character was just missing someone whispering in his ear to do bad deeds. Raven would have been perfect in this role. Raven would have added what Paul Bearer never could, some reality to the character. It would have given Kane purpose instead of just being a 'Mystery Partner'.

The Kane character has always just lacked direction. Raven could have used him as a machine, plowing through anyone Raven felt needed to be plowed through. A little like the Paul E/Brock realtionship when it first started. Except if Kane ever questioned Raven he'd be hit with a DDT or a Singapore cane. Kane being a messed up person anyway would fear retaliation on Raven. This type of thing would have really worked too. It could have gone on for months, and right before it was ready to fizzle out...Kane lashes out all the anger and hatered that's been built up inside on his controller, Raven. Leading to a violent and bloody feud of it's own.

This is the only fantasy booking idea I've ever had that really would have worked. If done in an ECW style it would have drawn and been good for both Kane and Raven. THEN maybe after something like this Kane could start coming out of his shell...then again what do I know

That's like the best idea I've ever seen posted on this board. Great.

Huh? To my mind, the possibilities are endless.

-- or should I say WERE endless, because they've pretty much killed off the "Kane" character by turning him into bad comic relief.

I'm waiting for the backstage skit where Swamp Thing runs into Kane and says, "Yo, dude, the new mask -- you stole my look, man!"

Just like the old clichee goes: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I liked Kane. I still like him. I don't like the goofy part of him.

When the return of Kane was being hyped, something was said about a mistress, right? Right then, i thought the WWE was going to bring in Synn from OVW. Check her out on www.ovwrestling.com -- she'd definately fit Kane's image...

But now, we're with the Kane-a-roonie, and the Hurri-Kane tag team...

Am I haeppy? Yes, but only because Helms has a title. Nothing else. Oh yeah, and that Kane doesn't have to work a program with or job to X-Puke again.

I'm seriously thinking about trying to get to this show. Hmmm...I don't get out of work here until 6:00, so I'll have to go straight there...it just might work.
