That was almost bad. A wrestler has to have the right look to make everything work right. If a wrestler does not have the right appearance or attire, something is always going to feel a little bit off about them. It is one of the most important parts of a wrestler’s career and there have been some instances of promotions completely missing the mark. That was nearly the case again with a wrestling legend.
During a recent edition of his Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast, Sean Waltman, better known as X-Pac, revealed that Kane almost wrestled in green attire. The different look would have been used during Kane’s team with X-Pac, but it never actually appeared on television. Waltman did not like the idea, as Kane was known as the Big Red Machine while also not being part of D-Generation X, whose signature color was green.
Kane and X-Pac were a good team. Check out some of their time together and the full podcast:
Opinion: This is one of those ideas where I can understand the concept and thinking behind the idea, but it was not going to work in reality. Kane in green would have looked more silly than anything else and as Waltman said, he was already the Big Red Machine. I’m not sure how well it would have gone, but it is probably better that this was just an idea instead of something we actually saw.
What did you think of the idea? Could it have worked? Let us know in the comments below.
