With over 8 hours of footage on this extensive 3 disc dvd set, this is defaintly one to have in the collection. Im a big fan of Kane and was really looking forward to this set, and mildly surprised the WWE actually did it in the first place considdering what they’ve done with Kane’s character the last couple of years! I was slightly disapointed that it wasn’t more in the documentary style, but when you considder the title is about Kane and not Glen Jacobs, I can see why it is done in this way. Kane himself introduces each match whilst in a dark and ‘scarey’ room (kinda like Freddy Kruger’s boiler room!) and tells us how he likes to destroy people and hurt people!


Disc one is probably my favourite disc of the collection as it has stuff on there I have never seen. I started watching wrestling in 2000 so there’s some fantastic matches on here that I loved watching; including the WrestleMania Undertaker confrontation from 1998, the Inferno match from ‘In Your House’ in April of that same year, and the WWE Tag Team Championship Match between X-Pac & Kane vs. Jeff Jarrett & Owen Hart from RAW April 5, 1999. To open disc one we see a montage of Kane/Dude Love and how the Mankind/Kane feud came about. Talking about Mankind Kane says ‘We’re both sick, twisted and demented, but most of all we both like pain!’


The first match on the disc is the Special Challenge match between Kane and Mankind from Survivor Series of 1997 which saw Kane’s ‘official’ in ring debt for the then WWF. Kane looks HUGE back then; a lot bigger than he is today! The match is filmed in eerie red lighting as they fight in and out of the ring while Paul Bearer watches and cheers on his ‘son’. Ending when Kane gets the Tombstone Piledriver on Mankind, this wasn’t the most amazing match you’ll ever watch but it’s defaintly one you should see!


We go from Kane’s debut in the World Wrestling Federation right the way through to early April last year with another classic Kane vs Undertaker ‘Champion vs Champion’ match that I couldn’t honestly even remember! With lots and LOTS inbetween.


Disc two has classic matches such as the Heavyweight Championship vs The Intercontinental Championship (Triple H vs Kane) from No Mercy of 2002, Shane McMahon Vs Kane in the Last Man Standing match and also the Ambulance match those two had! It touches on his tag team with Rob Van Dam but Kane says they were like ‘Oil & Water’ before introducing the match with them against Jericho & Christian from Raw in January 2003. Jericho and Christian are accompanied to the ring by a very young-looking (and 93% healthy!) Randy Orton while in the corner of RVD & Kane is HBK! Its a great match to watch again and possibly my favourite on the whole DVD for sheer sentimental values!


This of course led to Kane losing his mask at Raw in June of 2003, losing a match against Triple H where it was Title Vs Mask and the ‘split’ between Kane & Van Damn, ending with a great Steel Cage match on 8th September Raw of 2003.


I definatly got myself lost in this DVD set for a few hours at a time, but it is way too long to sit and watch all in one go! Set yourself a couple of nights aside and sit and enjoy seeing some of these classic matches from the Big Red Machine!


8/10
