Kane is day 5 of the Scariest of All-Time countdown. Again, these are in no particular order. I picked Kane today because it was 23 years ago tonight that he made his WWE debut. I was fortunate to be in the crowd at the Kiel Center that evening.
It was the closing moments of the first-ever Hell in a Cell between Undertaker and Shawn Michaels when the ominous music started. We knew Kane was coming but we had no idea how scary this monster would end up being. He tombstoned his brother, allowing Michaels to pick up the victory.
In the months that followed, Kane went on a spree of destroying the top good guys on the roster. Mankind was the first of many victims. Vader went down too. Heck, Kane even beat 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin for the WWF Championship (just for a day, though).
Through the years, Kane has evolved. He's been a monster heel, a fun-loving baby face, and a corporate stooge. That says a lot for Glenn Jacobs, the man behind the gimmick, especially considering the silliness that preceded the Kane character. He is truly one of the all-time greats for that alone.
