5/10. Very hit or miss, inconsistency is a pet peeve of mine. Would like to give him higher but the amount of snooze fests he has put on is unforgivable. Then again, there were some years where he was one of the workhorses of the WWE in terms of number of matches performed so he had more chances to put on snooze fests. I don't think I would rate a match I saw him in higher than 4 stars.

Embrace the hate was good at the start. WHC Kane on Smackdown who tried to kill Undertaker was ... interesting. Team Hell No Kane was great. Corporate Kane was good.

Maybe I am being too harsh on him. He has had a long career and performs his role well as a monster. I guess I just expect better in ring performances from monsters because of what The Wyatt Family gave us.
If you don't like inconsistency then I dread what you are going to rate Mr inconsistent himself triple h. Probably like a 3 or a 4

^There is a difference. Orton has the talent but sometimes just does not give a shit and phones it in. Kane's bad matches are because he either doesn't have the talent or can't work well with his opponent

Lol aren’t you an Orton fan?
Yea. So what?

You really need to read before you post. You completely miss the mark everytime.

I dont rate wrestlers based on consistency. That ain't me. Never said it was a big priority for me.

Unlike base who believes it's abig deal. Fair enough.

I would really appreciate if you took the time to read the thread before you actually post. I think everyone would be happier

For the record I actually stopped watching wrestling completely the
first time Kane took his mask off...& I didn't come back till 2016...so
I missed a lot of stuff...

Like his first unmasked rampage, the Lita Impregnation angle (Jesus),
the re-masking, Team Hell No & even Corporate Kane...



but despite all of that...Glen Jacobs will always be one of...if not
my all time favorite male wrestler/performer.

And even though I heard it was utter cringe at the time...I would
have watched RAW for Corporate Kane back in the day.

:thumbsup:

That’s why no one is agreeing with you and liking your post, but to each their own. :emoji_slight_smile:

Kane has been a dependable, mid-card performer. When the WWE called upon him to play fake Diesel and Isaac Yankem DDS, Glenn Jacobs would do it with No questions asked. It's admirable Kane has been with the company since 1995, 24 years is a lifetime by WWE standards. But I wonder, would he have had the longevity with the company if it wasn't for the fact his right-wing political views are aligned with his boss?

There are long, forgettable gaps in his career and there aren't a lot of Kane matches out there where I would say, "Wow, what an unbelievable Kane match! I gotta watch it again." In recent times, the only storyline I liked him in was when he teamed up with Daniel Bryan to form Team Hell No. Most of his memorable work occurred during the Attitude era. Given his longevity, but having far too many forgettable gaps in his career, I'll give him a 6/10.

What I'm saying isn't opinion based. Its facts lol. Do not need people on here to agree with me when I'm saying the truth.
lol this is “fact?:” “Iwould really appreciate if you took the time to read the thread before you actually post. I think everyone would be happier”

Hmmmm nice try dude. Just go back to watching Orton matches with his 4 moves of doom.

Fuck off Crow...

Well...funny story.

I was "surfing the interwebs" when I saw an image of
an "Amazon Blonde" with a weird looking "Butterfly
belt" around her waist.

I was like "Ric Flair has a daughter? Say what?" &
so I decided to give the WWE another try AFTER
years of not even thinking about pro wrestling.

I also knew to stop watching wrestling for 3-6 months or even a year and then get back to it. In every case the thing that made me get back into wrestling were WWE games - the same thing that hooked me to start watching it in the first place. My cousin got a ps2 somewhere around 2008 and we were crazy about the wrestling games. It was for a very little time SvR 07 and after that SvR 08. The second one we liked so much that we used to invite the gang over and play it together for 4 hours straight, sometimes even more. Since we didn't have a Serbian channel on the tv streaming WWE, we found a German tv station that used to stream Smackdown, an extremely shorted version where they would cut the show to about 45 minutes and show no full matches. The commentators were blabbing German all over the promos, matches, fuckin' everything xd so we learned a little bit of it. I liked almost all of the wrestlers and every day I was changing my favorite one, even though the first one ever was Matt Hardy. If I remember everything well, most of the time Jeff Hardy was my fave and I hated Punk's guts when that brilliant 2009 feud occured. Ironically enough, he is my all time favorite today and all the way since I was 16+, even though Jeff is still my #2. But at that early times we actually never prefered the real thing over a video game but we were slowely switching to it. Since I was about 8-9 years old and he was in high school I always argued with him if the shows were scripted hahah, he knew they were but I was just a kid and had no idea how an unstaged combat sport looked like. Believe it or not, there were plenty of Serbs that thought it was not scripted and were like 20-30 years old, and when they eventually figured it out that it was they stopped watching it. Shows were still exciting to them but it was that good ol' Serbian logic that prevailed - "Scripted tho", "Not real tho", "MMA is real tho, I'mma watch that instead". Anyways, we kept playing the games and watched shows more and more until SvR 11 came out. At that time neither me or him gave a shit about wrestling, we learned literally everything about it. My knowledge was a little bit better than his but either way we were some of the very few Serbian experts of the game, and the only ones in our small town xd.

About four and a half years after, I started watching it sporadically again, nostalgia kicked in and I was hyped for some time because that thing was one of the symbols of my childhood. That feeling quickly faded away and I stopped again after a month. Football and basketball were my biggest interests as I grew more. But some year after, both me and him got back into watching wrestling and playing some of the games again. He didn't last long though but I did to this very day. To be honest, even today there are times I literally prefer some 2k or SvR over a most exciting ppv, those games have something in them that's just so unique and never gets old. None sport out there, scripted or "real", has that kind of a perfect video game simulation, when you look at football or basketball games(FIFA, PES, NBA 2K) that's just not it, only way those could be interesting are if you play it with a buddy over a beer. Of course, a game can't compare to the real show and it's better to watch a fine Impact episode while smoking a cig and having a cup of coffe in the morning than to simulate a Benoit vs Punk match at WM on your xbox, but there were small periods of time I preffered that second one. The all 2k and SvR thing is a damn good advertisment for WWE though, I know a shitload of people that got into watching wrestling solely because of that.
But I dunno could you enjoy playing those games Griev, ya stinky old Aussie turd :bischoff:
