I first started watching WWE in summer of 2003. At that time, I was very stressed out and in high school and I needed something to relieve me of my everyday frustrations, so I turned to wrestling and I watched Monday Night RAW for the first time on June 23, 2003....the night that Kane unmasked and went psycho! It was at that moment that I had found my favorite wrestler, Kane. And ever since I loved his matches & feuds, especially the fued with Shane McMahon, plus I loved how he would come to the ring in chains & shackles w/ a black rag on his head while surrounded by cops. However that didnt last long. But anyways, long story short, Kane is by far my favorite wrestler and I discovered this at a Wal-Mart, and yes I got it for a cheap price, but I didnt care, I just had to have it.
Now overall this is a good DVD for any Kane fan, however there are some matches/segments that I personally believe should have been on this DVD, and these happen to be some pretty good matches, some of the best I've ever seen involving the Big Red Machine, so here are those matches/segments which should have been in this DVD:
#1:Kane vs. Goldberg vs. Triple H
Triple Threat Match for World Title
This was one of the best triple threat matches I ever saw, and the best part is Kane practically dominates most of the match, taking turns on Goldberg, then Triple H. And towards the end, Triple H was getting his rear end handed to him by Kane. Kane may have lost this match thanks to Batista, but he was very dominant. In fact, I personally believe Kane should've won this match just simply cause he could inflict more damage on Goldberg than Triple H ever did, on his own at least. Plus he had just destroyed Shane McMahon at the last Pay-Per-View and buried Undertaker also on the same night. It would've been a perfect time to put the belt on Kane.
#2: Kane vs. Big Show
I was quite surprised that they did not include the "May 19th", oh crap I said it, lol!, anyway, the May 19th story on this dvd. Kane himself said it was the day that Undertaker burned the funeral home and killed his parents and burned Kane's face. Plus it was cool how he was always being haunted by the date during matches, which ended in him turning on Big Show, his tag team partner and led to this match. Not one of Kane's best battles, but it's the story that made it interesting.
#3: Kane vs. Batista
This is one of those very good, fast paced matches between too big heavyweights. Kane was always seen as the monster of RAW and then Batista comes along and you've got a clash of the titans. Unfortunately, Kane lost this one, but it's still a very good match, especially since this was when Batista was fresh and new, so any Batista fan would also love this match.
#4: Kane/RVD vs. Road Warriors
Can't remember the exact date on this one, but it was after Kane & Rob Van Dam won the tag team belts. Now how often is it that you see the Legion of Doom, arguably the greatest tag team ever, just randomly show up and challenge the reigning tag team champions? Well thats exactly what happens here, and its definitely worth being put on the DVD.
#5: RAW TLC Match 2002
Tag Team Titles
Kane vs. Jeff Hardy/RVD vs. Chris Jericho/Christian vs. Dudley Boyz
Do I really need to explain why this one needs to be on the DVD? All Im gonna say is that Kane wins, and he won it on his own w/ no partner.
#6: Kane/Hulk Hogan/The Rock vs. nWo (Scott Hall/Kevin Nash/X-Pac)
It's the only time u ever see Hulk Hogan and Kane involved in the same match, too bad they were on the same team. Sadly there may never be a match between Kane and Hogan, but it is cool to see them w/ The Rock as a tag team.
#7: Kane vs. Chris Benoit
World Title Match
Badd Blood 2004
This match was very intense. You had Benoit, one of the most rugged and tough champions going up against Kane, who according to the story behind the match, rarely taps-out. In fact, I can remember watching segments before this match of Kane escaping Benoit's Crippler Crossface submission move. Benoit fails to make Kane tap, but he does manage to BARELY roll him up for the pin. Still, the fact that Benoit couldn't get Kane to tap out or even get him in the Crossface is something to take note of. HOWEVER, I can understand why this one wasn't put in due to the Benoit tragedy, as WWE removed everything w/ the Benoit name from their organization once it occured. RIP Benoit & family.
#8: Kane vs Undertaker
The build-up to this match was epic and plus its a much better match up than the match up they had on SmackDown in 2008, which is on the DVD.
#9: Royal Rumble 2001
Kane makes 11 eliminations in this Royal Rumble match. Need I say more?
#10: Kane, Mark Henry, Great Khali, Big Daddy V
ECW Monster Mash Battle Royal
A battle of the superheavyweights. Sure it may be a slow paced match up, but its always fun to see the biggest wrestlers in the ring all go at it at once. However, Big Daddy V aka Viscera/Mabel is, well, he's not wearing a shirt.
Now those were the matches, here are some segments which could've been put on the DVD:
-Kane & Undertaker displaying both of their powers on RAW before Wrestlemania 14
-Kane announcing that if he did not beat Steve Austin, that he would set himself on fire (I think this is when Kane spoke for the first time using that device)
-Steve Austin trying to motivate Kane into being a monster again
-Kane chokeslamming Eric Bischoff off the RAW stage
-Kane electrocuting Shane McMahon in the area which hurts most
-Kane & Shane McMahon having dinner before their Survivor Series match ( Kane makes a great dinner guest in this segment. lol!)
-Kane's funeral for Undertaker after burying him alive @ Survivor Series
-Triple H telling the Katy Vick story on RAW
-The segment before Wrestlemania XX where there is a coffin in the ring and Kane tries to show he's not intimidated
-Kane stalks Great Khali with one of those hooks he used in See No Evil
-Kane tells Matt Hardy that he is the father of Lita's child right as Matt Hardy proposes to her
Now I know thats quite a bit, but as a big Kane fan, they really should've put these matches and segments in the DVD. But as with basically every WWE DVD, there are gonna be some matches or segments that anyone will say should have been added. Oh Well. Still a good DVD nonetheless.
