At 7-feet tall and more than 300 pounds, Kane has been tormenting opponents since his debut, and even that was huge.
Following months of speculation, Kane made his first appearance on October 5, 1997, at Bad Blood. There, he ripped the cage door off during the first-ever Hell in a Cell Match between Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker. Kane and Undertaker then stood toe to toe during a chilling stare-down. The “Big Red Monster” wore a mask, and he hid his body in attire designed to conceal hideous burns from a fire supposedly started by his half-brother Undertaker. Then, Kane kicked the Deadman in the stomach and Tombstoned him — allowing a battered Michaels to pin Undertaker for the victory.
Some 14 years later, many things have changed, but some things, like Kane’s volatile relationship with Undertaker, remain the same. While they’ve had their ups and downs over the years, the two had a falling out over this past summer, when it was revealed that Kane rendered his half-brother into a vegetative state. The two are again poised to do battle, much as the case was the night Kane made his dramatic entrance into WWE.
