The list keeps growing. One of the wonderful things about the Road to WrestleMania is that we get to see the inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame. This is always a great time of year as the legends of professional wrestling become enshrined for their contributions to the business.
Today, another member of the class of 2021 was announced on WWE’s “The Bump”, as it was revealed that Kane will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The announcement was made by The Undertaker, his fellow Brother of Destrcution.
You can see the announcement below:
Kane’s legendary career was intertwined with The Deadman’s from the very beginning. Long thought to have perished in a fire at their family’s funeral home, Kane emerged through hellfire and brimstone to haunt his brother in Fall 1997, infamously tearing the door off Hell in a Cell to confront Undertaker and begin one of WWE’s most truly heated rivalries.
To settle their score, The Big Red Monster and The Phenom clashed in every conceivable type of match. They battled surrounded by flames in the first-ever Inferno Match, were locked inside Hell in a Cell and even tried to bury each other alive. It’s surprising that they were ever able to get along, but they did, proving to be one of WWE’s most deadly tag teams. The Brothers of Destruction wreaked havoc on WWE, capturing the World Tag Team Titles and the WCW Tag Team Titles.
Kane has also embraced the lighter side of things in WWE, as best evidenced by his time as a member of Team Hell No with Daniel Bryan. The pair’s sojourn to anger management classes had WWE fans rolling on the floor in laughter, as did their infamous attempt to “hug it out” in the middle of the ring. Warm embraces aside, the duo was also a threat in the ring and captured the WWE Tag Team Titles.
When not part of a tag team, Kane also proved to be one of the most dominant Superstars in history. The Devil’s Favorite Demon captured the WWE Championship, World Heavyweight Championship, ECW Title, Intercontinental Title and won the 2010 Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Anyone with a resume like that is destined for the WWE Hall of Fame.
Kane is easily one of the most deserving superstars to ever be awarded this tremendous honor. His career has spanned over two decades and he has been a part of some of the most memorable moments in WWE history. To see him become so emotional after hearing the news from Mark Calaway made it even more special and it was truly a wonderful moment!
