Back in 2013, we saw something that no wrestling fan ever dreamed would happen.
Kane made his triumphant return to a WWE ring after being away from action due to an injury, at Hell in the Cell, when he attacked The Wyatt Family and The Miz. The following night on RAW, Kane then pledged his loyalty to Stephanie McMahon and turned over his mask to her.
It was a major shock to fans, and much to their dismay, it wouldn't end with just his mask. Kane stopped wearing his typical red and black ring gear and instead, exchanged them for business attire to better look the part of his new role, Director of Operations (Only in story).

His ring attire wasn't the only change that fans seen, Kane even changed how to spoke and acted. Gone was the scare tactics or supernatural abilities and here, now was an actual businessman.
The now, newly reformed Kane, who was no longer calling himself The Big Red Monster, was not referring to himself as The Big Corporate Machine. Now that he was acclimating to his new position and title within the company, he quickly became a part of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon's Authority stable.

But with this new union came other requirements, he was paired numerous time with other top, heel members of The Authority and within the company, likes of Randy Orton and Big Show. Though Randy Orton's alliance didn't last long as he was betrayed by Seth Rollins and put him out of action. Kane and Big Show, however, quickly became the power house, muscle for The Authority.
While Kane has had little success in his singles career, he has had tremendous success in the tag team division where he has been parts of great teams like Team Hell No, The Brothers of Destruction, and Kane and Big Show as part of The Authority.
Kane has had countless Tag Team Championships reigns through out his career, ten times actually. Whether he is paired with his brother, The Undertaker, Daniel Bryan, Rob Van Dam, Mankind, X-Pac, The Hurricane, or more recently the Big Show; he is Tag Team Championship gold.
So it begs to question, as to why in the recent months that he has been being portrayed as the weak link in The Authority? Seth Rollins even joked on WWE TV after WrestleMania, about Kane's elimination from the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal:
"Big Show won, I won the WWE Title and Kane..... well Kane's brother, The Undertaker came back."
Kane's reactions to these remarks was a scowl and blank, vacant eyes. I truly feel that it's time for a change within his character. It's time for him to bring back his mask, his red and black ring attire and rain hellfire and brimstone down upon The Authority and the WWE.
