1) I don't dislike the mask. I'm just so attached to the old one that it'll take a while to grow on me. So it's still cool.
2) His new outfit... eh. I don't really like it all that much, but it's not horrible. I just think the flames were better that stripes.
3) His feud. Okay, I love UT, and I'm happy with his match tonight against Hunter, which I hope he wins, and feuds with Lesnar, with HHH around to screw it all up. Anyway, I almost feel that Kane should be in this spot and UT should still be fighting the UnAmericans. Even though they did solicit "We Want Kane" chants, I really don't think that this is the feud I really wanted to see him come back to. Oh well.
4)Practice that goddamned Kane-A-Roonie before you try it you big red freak!
5)His voice... eh. I didn't see his funny promo with Hogan and the Rock, but I liked his much deeper, gravely voice. But I guess it's kind of hard to cut promos with like that.
6) I love Kane. I hope he can pull out good matches with Test again like he did last fall. Kane rocks. I'm glad he's back, and I hope he moves up the card with the other three up-and-coming faces (Booker T, RVD, Edge)

"SEND HIM TO HELL! SEND HIM TO HELL!!" - J.R., as Kane was about to chokeslam Test. Geez, Jim, chill
Seeing Kane, Booker T, and Golddust in the ring reminded me of another comment I heard on this board a few weeks ago - about how the Americans showed diversity, while the Unamericans all kinda looked bland and alike.
Does the WWE really want to declare Great Satan as being part of proud America?
That voice is gonna take some getting used to. That was, however, the best spin-a-roony (official T-shirt spelling!)I've ever seen by a non-Booker T wrestler. Still bad, don't get me wrong, but better than anybody else.

Kane looked ripped and fast tonight. I hope it wasn't the adrenaline from being back in the ring.
The new 3rd uniform looks ok. Kinda fetishy with all the straps.
The new mask is also cool. It will be easier to cut a promo without the mouth guard.
Kane-a-roonie? C'mon, that killed it for me. You don't build him up like a bad ass and have him do a spinn-a-roonie.

Cue the "Halloween" music, we may be seeing Kane in a horror movie pretty soon!
EDIT: Oh, and evilwaldo, I think that's his 5th uniform. First came the full-body outfit, then came the one-arm exposed outfit, then the reverse color one-arm exposed outfit, then the tanktop, and now the exposed mouth bondage belt horror movie outfit we saw today. Phew!

After lots of thinking I finally came to a theory: Any non-wrestler who gets attacked by the Island Boyz will immediately recieve praise from the Wienerville community. There's no other way to explain it.
Kane's new outfit looks "not bad"?! You mean the one that is sheer pantyhose with bright red straps going every which way? It looks terrible. He looks like a special edition Valentine's Day Kane action figure.
Even though they do the commentary in post, Cole usually DOES go overseas with the crew, so it's not entirely implausible. I have no evidence he went THIS year, but you can see his blogs/videos from previous years with a little digging.
