I'm sure they were just doing it to test the reactions of the crowds at house shows. If their longterm plan is to continue to put Kane out there looking like this, I really don't see how this helps him at all.

I guess he no longer looks like Larry, now he looks like Curly.

I was thinking that he looks like a fitter version of Butterbean.

Well, it's certainly got me curious about tonight.

It looks more and more like they'll do the angle now where Evolution paid to get him cleaned up, plastic surgery, etc.

Which would suck.

They could do a marketing crossover with ABC's "Extreme Makeover" show.

And I'm gonna miss calling him "the big burned bastard."

I don't like how they shaved him bald. That hair was a key factor. He doesn't look nearly as scary now, without the hair and paint. He just looks like a Nathan Jones wannabe.

Well, I'll wait until tonight to pass judgment.

Who cares? Logic has never been the WWE's strong point. All I know is that if they turned him face and had him squash HHH in a title match, no one would care at all if he had hair, no hair, a mohawk, scars no eyes or whatever.

Give him a decent storyline. The rest will work itself out.

    How much effort does it take to not get a haircut?

Looking at those pictures, I'm just glad to see someone finally decided to hire Gomer from Full Metal Jacket to work for a wrestling company.

Seriously, this does not strike me as a good look for him. Maybe he needs fake hair and a mask or something, but yet another big bald guy will IMO likely have trouble sticking out of the crowd.

Is there any reason why he just can't put the mask back on? I never cared what the guy looked like; I just thought the character's look was cool.

I mean, we all know what Rey Rey looks like.

Maybe the guy who feuds with Kane next can throw a fireball at him. It's been a while since we've seen one of those, and it would give him a reason to put the mask back on.

From the house show pics that have been posted, I think he looks like a Jesse Ventura clone. Last week, I thought he looked like a Road Warrior cast off. I don't think they should have cut his hair off for last week's show, but I like the bald look better than the Muppet hair style.

I could care less about the hair, but they really ought to put the mask back on.

Unlike most, I didn't really give a shit about the questionable makeup job last week. If that's the WWE answer to "horribly scarred," that's fine with me, because it makes sense storyline-wise, especially with JR overselling it like a motherfucker.

The mask, however, is Kane's trademark. Taking his mask off ruins his look and makes him just another big bald guy. It's kind of like giving Austin a Kevin Nash mid-nineties hairstyle and shaving his beard. It kills the most recognizable part of the character, the bit that makes him an individual, who you recognize at a glance and mark out for.

It's a bad idea, WWE.

I guess we'll see tonight.
