– At the conclusion of the 2011 Slammy Awards, Kane reemerged, once again masked. The Big Red Monster locked his hand around the neck of John Cena and left him laying with a devastating chokeslam.

One reason for Kane resurfacing with a mask is because WWE officials are looking to set a new Guinness World Record for the “largest gathering of people wearing costume masks” at WrestleMania XXVIII in Miami, Florida. The current record was set May 10, 2011 during a Major League Baseball game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Chicago White Sox at Angel Stadium of Anaheim when roughly 25,000 fans donned red Lucha masks during a designated ten minute time period.

— The I.P.A. Network is now accepting autograph signing bookings for former WWE star John Morrison. Contact Steve Woolf at celebritysignings@sbcglobal.net (951) 780-9611.

Tough Enough contestant Rima Fakih appears on MTV’s MADE Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.

    Ok I think I can solve the whole Undertaker rumor…remember the picture of Undertaker bald earlier this year? and kanas mask looks more like a human face. What if Taker was bald because they did a casting of his face so they could mold kanas mask? Its Takers facial features made into a mask for his brother.

    I enjoy these sites…But it’s becoming more and more clear they don’t know anything more then a normal fan.

    The report that they were still debating Kane coming back w/o a mask was ridiculous. Especially as promos aired with him PUTTING THE MASK ON….Now this report which is just stupid….Yeah…he’s back in a mask for a gimmick that was supposed to be for Rey and Sin Cara.

    He’s in the mask for a couple reasons…It freshens him up a bit and they are able to remake him as a monster. He’s instantly back to top of the card status. The mask is also a good sale item as well. WWE actualy kept him in the mask for as long as they did because of the merchandising ability the mask gave.

    This is Glen’s last big run…do 7 months or so as a monster heel and then one last good face run. Probably ending with a short world title run.

    Kick ass intro and awesome mask though

  • Cm Punk 86

    @numero uno if its taker wheres the tats you on crack sir..

  • Vedik

    Kane’s mask he had over his other mask looked like something the Predator would wear. Very cool. I was just shocked Kane had new tights!

  • numero uno

    if anyone believes it was glen jacobs on raw they are on crack!!!!!There is no way it was him playing kane last night!!!!
    Just look at the pics on wwe.com, it is the undertaker!!!!!!

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    So now what happens since Kane is heel? There is some unwritten rule in WWE that can’t have heel vs heel unless it is a qualifier of some type. Probably going to forget all about Mark breaking his leg or ankle, whatever it was.

  • liam

    its 100% kane u idiots, watch the last 10 seconds before it goes off air, when smiles! Hes got one of the most reconisable smiles in the wwe!

    AND…

    Its not his hair its a wig, and if u watched kane years ago when he 1st removed the mask the hair was attached to the mask..

    AND…

    Kanes body looks nothin like undertakers with or without tattoo’s!

  • Tim

    @Philly655… I doubt Undertaker would volunteer to have decades of tattoos removed to be the “fake” masked Kane.

  • scooter

    OMG ITZ TAKER IN TEH MASK JERICHO IZ RETURNING AND WINNING THE RUMBLE STING IZ WRESTLING AT MANIA AND THEIR MAKING SHENMUNE 3 WITH SHENLONG AS A PLAYABLE CHARACTER!
    ^ if you beleive all the hype (when really theirs not a lot its just onw idiot speculating then another idiot takes it as fact passes it onto their friends then its out there as a fact) then this is you

  • the dude

    I’m curious as to why he had the glove on and chokeslamed cena with the left hand

  • Dystre Fjell

    And they have him listed on the Smackdown roster on WWE.com. I guess it doesn’t matter now as all smackdown wrestlers are competing on RAW weekly.

  • CC

    To be fair, I wouldnt take the reports on here as being spot on with regards to why Kane is wearing the mask, as it was only a day or so ago that they were reporting that WWE were not sure about whether he was coming back with the mask or not.

  • http://lsdfk AUSTIN316

    Its not the Undertaker, are you stupid, they would rather not bring back kane at all than risk injurying the Undertaker again before WM, Undertaker is resting for Mania, like I said they would rather wait til the rumble to bring him back rather than risking Undertaker being injuried and not able to compete for WM, and undertaker isnt the only man in the world with a ginger beard

  • Philly655

    go to wwe.com – clearly taker in a mask – face not remotely like kanes and also has takers grey/ginger beard… Surely no one could believe this is kane… donuts…

  • Dan

    If it really was the Undertaker pretending to be Kane, wouldn’t it just be easier to make his new attire have long sleeves to cover up his tattoos rather than “skin sleeves”?

  • http://lsdfk AUSTIN316

    KID “Dad Whos that?”
    DAD “Son Thats Kane”
    KID “No Kane doesnt have a mask”
    DAD “Why did I bring you again?”

  • numero uno

    no, it wasnt the real kane…if you look at the wwe website, you can clearly see that it is the undertaker with skin sleeves on to cover up his tattoos…

  • bloodstone

    and the main reason why wwe had kane came back wearing a mask it wasn’t him

  • Devil_Rising

    WWE seriously needs to get a clue, make Money in the Bank a Wrestlemania only match again (it never should have stopped being that way), and then put Kane in it and let him win it.

    That kind of match was always good, because they could have a spot for 6-8 wrestlers to be on the WM card, without taking up too much space. They were retarded to ever make it it’s own PPV event.

  • the dude

    Wwe did this perfectly kane came back as a heel looking completly bad ass good job wwe

  • KpNuttzLol

    It’s a dumb creative angle really. Returning someone in a mask just to break a world record (which they probably won’t do). I can see why he attacked Cena so that it will set up a feud and mask sales would increase but wouldn’t it make more sense to have him as a babyface.

  • moo

    I really wasn’t into the masked return, I was interested at first cause the masked Kane during the attitude era was my favourite wrestler, but the outfit he was wearing looked pretty bad, and that thing he had on over his mask reminded me of the shockmaster.

  • Jaime5150

    Kane vs Taker WM 28?

  • Ironcross

    They going to say why he put the mask on, or it it just to sell masks? thats pretty pathetic, whats the storyline? what a joke, he isn’t even burnt.

  • Big T

    It was nice to hear hints of his old music again too. I’m a huge fan of Kane.

  • Starship Pain

    WWE is like a video game player: They are tired of the “game” (wrestling) and now they want to get the “trophies/achievements” (records, money to burn up…)

  • dave

    yeah old man kane is back to job more

  • Jon

    With Kane carrier winding down it nice to see mask Kane back one last time. Now Jan 2 we see biker Taker return.

  • Bawb

    Why couldn’t they use the old mask to cover his whole face? He was the best in that role. Plus, it is just nostalgically enjoyable. What in the blue hell was the point of using that new complete face-mask for him, then removing it for the old one?

    I…I..just don’t get them. *breaks down and cries*

  • Sean Mooney

    Cena has an opponent now for TLC, I am not sure what they will do with Kane from here on out though. It was good to see him back with a mask, and I am glad that he’s a heel again.

  • AttitudePl0x

    Make Kane the monster that he once was and WWE will go somewhere again. I hope WWE can see that if they make Kane the top dog, they will easily break the world record. I for one, want to see Kane destroy everything again.

  • PinkSinCara

    Well that’s a dumbass reason. But it still kicks ass so why not

  • Effmenow

    I see kane wrestling Cena at TLC, being in the Rumble match, being in a Elimination Chamber match, then creative will have nothing for him come Wrestlemania or he will get rid of the mask because thats just how bad creative is.

  • Valo487

    Silly me, I thought he came back with the mask on because they had a solid storyline involving the mask, so they could reestablish Kane as a monster and get some heat on him. You know, stuff that will sell tickets. But hey, who needs ticket sales when you can try and set a world record? Nows the ideal time since Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara are your two main masked guys and both are out with injuries.
