Vince McMahon, chairman of the WWE is a no nonsense kind of guy. He runs his beloved business his way, and if you work for him and have the audacity to cross him, he will use his favourite line. "You're fired!"
Now, Vince has his favourites when it comes to his WWE superstars. There's; The Rock, John Cena, Randy Orton, The Undertaker and his son-in-law Triple H to name just a few. Between those five there are countless titles. Now they may have worked hard to earn them, but there is one man (or monster) that has worked just as hard over a 17 year period but seen nowhere near the amount of top tier gold that the likes of Cena has. That man is Kane. And now I am going to explain to you why I believe Mr McMahon must surely not be a fan of the Big Red Monster.
John Cena has been in the WWE for around twelve years and has won the WWE Championship eleven times and the World Heavyweight Championship three times. The Rock debuted in 1996 and has eight WWE championships to his name, not to mention two World Heavyweight titles.
Triple H came to WWE in 1995 and has eight WWE championships and five World Heavyweight Championships. Randy Orton joined in 2002 and has eight WWE championships and four World Heavyweight Championships. You see the pattern here?
Lets take a look at Kane now. Kane debuted in 1997 as The Undertaker's younger brother. He is still currently in the WWE meaning that so far he has been in the company for seventeen years. The devils favourite demon has one WWE championship and one World Heavyweight Championship. And this isn't the most shocking stat.
Vince McMahon allowed the seven foot monster to hold the title for just one night. He beat Stone Cold Steve Austin at the 'King Of The Ring' tournament to claim the top prize but then lost it the following night on Raw to the same man.
What must be insulting to Kane and his fans is when you look at some of the other past WWE champions and the days they held the title for. Lets look at a few here; Mr McMahon himself won it in 1999, holding it for six days. Big Show held it in 1999 for 50 days. Brock Lesnar won it twice in 2003, holding the title for 119 and 152 days respectively. Sheamus held the coveted title in 2009 for 70 days. Even The Miz won it in 2010, holding it for 160 days. So the question has to be asked, why has Kane only been given the title for one day?
As for his World Heavyweight Championship win, that came via a 'Money in the Bank' cash-in. Kane cashed in on Rey Mysterio and held the title for around five months. So this means that Kane has held the WWE's top two titles for a combined five months.
Kane has continuously been used as a superstar to put others over and has made no public complaints about this. He has taken little time off (the odd occasion to film for wwe studios) and has worked the live events for years. He is very intelligent, has had no public scandals or been suspended like alot of other WWE superstars have and has never walked out on the company.
Now that sounds like the perfect employee, so why is it that WWE's top man Vince McMahon has been reluctant to give Kane the recognition? Now don't get me wrong, two Intercontinental championships and countless tag titles isn't bad, but for a hard working, talented superstar who has had a seventeen year career (and still going) to only have had the WWE championship for one day is very insulting to Kane and his fans.
Now if Vince McMahon doesn't have a problem with Kane, then I along with many other Kane fans would like to know, Why has Kane not seen WWE's top prizes more?
