WWE Superstar and Mayor of Knox County Kane recently appeared on WWE’s The Bump. The iconic performer appeared on the show to discuss the ongoing The Last Ride documentary featuring his on-screen ‘brother’ The Undertaker.
One of the points discussed during the interview was the feud between the Brothers of Destruction when Kane first appeared in the company. Kane made his debut at Badd Blood 1997, appearing following the Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels Hell in a Cell match at the show. The debut is regarded as one of the greatest in company history, and the 6 months following the angle have received huge praise from the ‘Big Red Machine.’
“Well the six month stretch is awesome because I got to beat literally everybody!” Kane would begin. “I think that was the best piece of epic storytelling WWE has ever done. Just the whole thing as far as from the introduction of Kane; from Paul Bearer talking about Kane before you ever saw him, to the storyline itself, the matches and everything. I just thought that it was just a great piece of storytelling.”
Kane would elaborate further, saying “everything seemed to work, we had all these different pieces. One reason I called it epic storytelling was because the feud was like mythology right? You had these two large and alive characters with this huge backstory and all these different things. So, it was just awesome and what was really cool? Every night was something different. Every Monday night on RAW was ‘what can we do this week?’ And of course at that time RAW was a very edgy show, so we were pushing the boundaries of television and really of storytelling.”
