I enjoyed it for pure laugh-out-loud value.

I mean, don't get me wrong - it's a SHITTY angle. But you can't help but laugh at the sheer stupidity of it all, can you? I mean, have they ever sunk lower?

This does beg the question of how in the HELL WWE plans on resolving this mess . . . I mean, if Kane wins, we have a new World Champ that No One is going to care about much. If Triple H wins - what the fuck was the point? All we would end up with is Triple H on top, and Kane buried under all kinds of storyline garbage he may never shake off.

Not to even mention the fact that almost every single major element of this storyline contradicts everything they have been telling us about Kane all along. WWE has essentially just hit the reset button on a five-year's worth of character development - and we're supposed to pretend Kane '97 - 02 never happened.

Which would be ALMOST acceptable if the new character was brilliant.

But it's not.









"And in front of the entire world, I want to show my little boy that sometimes - just sometimes, you have to FIGHT to be a man." - Michael S. Hickenbottom, the man who does not take part in angles that conflict with his religion, swearing violent revenge on HHH in full view of his two-year-old son. 11:06 PM, EST. 08/05/02. This angle, which has gone from being a "clean" wrestling match to an all-out unsanctioned street fight for bloody revenge is apparently sponsored by the book of Joshua.

Can someone please explain what place the word "semen" has in a WRESTLING SHOW? That's even worse that "hymen", for crying out loud.

Just gross. I reeeeeally dont wanna hear about anyone else's semen or hymen, ok?

So, from a casual fan's point of view, what does this mean about the PPV? If Kane wins, then he didn't have sex with a dead woman, but if he loses, then he did? I'm just trying to figure out how this retarded storyline is supposed to tie into the match somehow (Hey WWE writers! Here's a thought: Why don't you guys try that once in a while!)

    Are they supposed to flip the channel, see this and say "Oh yeah honey, that big red masked guy killed a girl and maybe raped her too. I can't wait to see him beat that blond fella and win the World Championship!"

    Someone please wake me up and end this nightmare.

Exactly. Who do you root for in this mess? Kane is now a disfigured, mask-wearing, drunk-driving, MURDERING necrophiliac - and he's the face. HHH is a favor-currying, steroid-abusing, self-promoting, political Poochie. Whoever wins, how do you care about either one?

This angle does nothing to promote interest in RAW or the PPV - it actually probably drives away more people than it draws in. Yet the WWE writers - in their wisdom - have made this debacle the feature storyline of the RAW "brand". Oddly enough, they don't seem to "get it".

The really amazing thing was that it kept getting worse -- much worse. Like, when they did that backstage chat with Kane and Terri, I was already laughing out loud at how horrendous it was. And then Kane got in the ring! Then the crowd started "What"ing! (And I hope you're happy about starting that shit, WWE.) Then Kane told this horrible story that completely clashed with everything we know about Kane! Then Triple H accused him of being drunk! Then he accused him of rape (and said "semen")! Then he accused him of necrophilia!

You know what? I'm still making up my mind, but I'm not sure I hate this angle. I mean, don't get me wrong -- it's horrible. But it's so horrible it's funny. It's vastly amusing that they're trying it and I was really rolling in the aisles while I was watching it. Plus called someone immediately after it was over to laugh about it. I think the E is at its best when it's intentionally funny and at its worst when it's neither intentionally nor unintentionally funny. Now, at least, it's unintentionally funny. Unintentional humor is a big part of the reason I started watching wrestling back when nobody else would touch it with a 10-foot pole and Sgt. Slaughter was getting boots via FedEx from Saddam Hussein.

The only question I'm having at this point is how much worse can it get? And as I'm thinking that, why is the song "I Want my Baby Back" by Jimmy Cross running through my head?

The word 'semen' definitely does not belong on TV. Besides, you know that many of these wrestlers are horrible jerks who probably rape or otherwise force themselves on women anyways.

Maybe Hurricane will somehow involve himself in the match and/or Terri will end up dying (I mean on TV, not in real life)! Quien sabe...

This storyline sucks all kinds of suck. The sad thing is that, of course, Kane is going to get blamed for it sucking despite the facts that Teo can't even deliver a decent heel promo anymore and that the crap the writing staff comes up with is getting progressively worse and worse each week.

Yes, but I'm also going by HHH's pronunciation. He pronounces it Vick, hence, it's Vick. Maybe he killed two people, both named Katie, and with similar last names, and WWE.com buggered up and put the wrong ones name there, since that'll be revealed later by someone else? That will make the angle... "BAH GOD! KANE'S A SERIAL KILLER AND A NECROPHELIAC! HE'S LIKE A STRAIGHT GEOFFREY DAHMER, BUT DOESN'T EAT PEOPLE BUT HAS SEX WITH THEM INSTEAD, BAH GOD!" and that would be much worse.

This is indeed a big ball of suck.

Last night, when Kane started speaking, I was bored, and changed the channel. Flicked back just in time to hear HHH say "...semen-". Instantly, I flipped away. The Mrs. and I spent 5 minutes coming up with a story about how HHH had a bunch of witnesses to the murder, and they all worked on a ship in the middle of the atlantic (SEA MEN!).

We were happy (well, happier) with that story - now I find out it was what we initally thought.

Ugh.

I will watch no more HHH or Kane. full stop.

Why is everyone complaining, Vince is finally writing a storyline that he has familiarity with. I mean look at Linda and tell me Vince being with her isn't necrophilia.

You guys just won't give this story a chance! People have been asking them to introduce drunk-driving, male ejaculate and sexual encounters with corpses for years, and when they finally do, you won't even let it develop. HHH brings in "necrophili-uhhhhh!" (he didn't actually get to say it, though, I'll admit that was a miss) like you fans have been demanding for years, and you pan it. If they hadn't broached the idea that Kane likely violated the corpse of an innocent, sweet young woman, you'd just be saying "Yeah, Kane killed her, but didn't he have sex with her corpse after her death, too? Huh, WWE? What about that? What about faces having sex with corpses, I ask you?"

I kid, of course. Kane obviously didn't have sex with Katie Fick's corpse. He might not have even killed her! It was pretty clear Kane's story was full of holes. Unless he was in one of those asylums where they let you wrestle and have keggers and it's big enough that you have to drive from one end to the other. I think this is just more intricately woven plotting that we've come to expect from World Wrestling Entertainment, and that poor Kane is just taking the blame for someone else.

Who? Well, who do we know who was wrestling ten years ago named Kane? Why, Kane the Undertaker, of course! They're clearly tying together the murder angle and the UT cheating angle. I believe that we'll learn that the Undertaker, after having killed his parents and having thought he killed his younger brother Kane in the fire, briefly took on the identity of his presumed-dead younger brother (this is also after the Undertaker himself died before joining the WWF and became a magic zombie, I guess) and started a ten-year long serial killing streak where he rode around the country bedding and then killing unsuspecting young women.

He started ten years ago with Katie Fick and over this horrifying Decade of Destruction, continued on with his sick game and would have killed Tracy SmackDown next if Paul Heyman hadn't stumbled on what appears to be an innocent affair as part of his mind games. Heyman will have unwittingly saved Tracy's life and, along with the shocking evidence uncovered by Encyclopedi-uhhhh Brown over on Raw, we're going to see this whole terrible case come to light and justice finally served. Up yours, CSI!

The Dr. comes through again. Very funny, especially calling her Tracy Smackdown. So Mark had Vince name his UPN show after his mistress? Delightful.

Back on topic, and I take it all back. I wanted to let this murder angle play out, and the WWE turns around and makes it the worst storyline EVER! If this angle doesn't win every "Worst Storyline" 2002 award I'll be shocked. This angle makes Undertaker/Underfaker look like a nuanced piece of intelligent storytelling.

This is like the "Debra managing The Rock" at WM17. That was going in such a bad direction, that they had to ditch that crap. I hoped WWE would have ditcheed this angle as well, but it appears that they are going to see this to the end. I don't understand why WWE thinks the need to add this crap. I would have bought into Kane vs HHH for the Unified title. But this whole murder angle has turned me OFF. It is so silly, so stupid. Why can't we just have two guys who hate each other, who have history fighting for the strap? Is that too hard to do?

Doc, you are truly the man.

This embarrassment of a "storyline" hit me on a personal note. About a year and a half ago, I covered a police case that involved a young woman getting shot in the head, as she was driving back to her college late at night. Her car ran off the road and the shooter later raped her.

It was probably the most terrible thing I've ever reported on, and this stupid wresting angle is too close to that, though I doubt the WWE writers read any of my stuff on it.

I really don't know what they're thinking, but there's no way in hell I'm gonna support this with my pay-per-view dollar.

Because they have to give us even more reasons why Kane should win this feud, so that when Teo gets to unify the titles on Sunday, it's even more of the WWF giving us the finger and saying, "Screw the fans, we're gonna do what Teo wants even if you don't like it."

How could this get worse? Um, Katie Fick shows up at the PPV. See, she's not really dead. It was all a big misunderstanding. And that's right, she still loves the Big Red Machine, because she still digs the mask! And we will have the marriage live on RAW!!!! This spells buy rates and ratings, baby!!!

I've figured it out, its a conspiracy by Steph/Steph to make sure her and Lucy the Dog are not the worst storyline. By comparison to this crap, the Lucy the Dog angle is Austin stunning Vince at MSG in 97.
