Kane and The Big Show are an amazing team.

Posted on May 24, 2011


Now were getting into the nitty gritty. Now were getting into the issues which anger me about the WWE. Now, after a few blogs I feel as if I can confide in you something I have never admitted (on the internet).

Kane and Big Show as a tag team.

Ever since Taboo Tuesday 2005 when they won the World tag team championship, they were awesome. They dominated the Raw tag team scene through 2005 and 2006. It was enjoyable watching them dominate teams like Val Venis and Viscera, Tomko and Snitsky (not small guys at all) during 2006, and then The Corre and The Nexus in 2011. I loved how during their 2006 run they worked so well in any situation they were put in. As heels against Batista and Rey Mysterio, and as faces against Chris Masters and Carlito (I loved them too).

I even love their entrance together (which you can see at the start of this video, as well as their domination Val Venis and Viscera). I have no idea why I love their entrance so much, you just see it and know business is about to pick up. I was so glad when they started teaming together again at the start of 2011, and they kept that entrance. It was great to have them back, and they looked as if they’d be dominating for a long time to come.

As you can tell, I love them. So imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to find out they lost the tag titles on free TV. I’ll be honest, it hurt. David Otunga has been irrelevant to me since CM Punk took over the Nexus, and to me Michael McGillicutty has always been just another guy in The Nexus. So why would they do that? Having Kane and Big Show, two of the WWE’s best monsters since 2000, dominate the tag team scene could have given the two wrestlers who beat them such a push. Instead they lose the belts to two guys on an episode of Raw in the most unremarkable circumstances possible. What a wasted opportunity.

When you look at the evidence, it makes sense in some way. Kane and Big Show have been rubbing shoulders with Alberto Del Rio, and clearly this is all in aid of setting up a feud between them. I think that maybe the reason they dropped the straps is to get Kane off Raw, and leave Big Show free to feud with Del Rio. But why? Kane and Show could’ve stayed champs and feuded with Del Rio separately. It happened before during Big Show’s feud with Triple H.

Also, The Nexus will probably do NOTHING with those belts. Hold them, hardly defend them, lose them to whoever needs to be on Raw in the coming months. Why not let Kane and The Big Show feud with Sheamus and McIntyre? It would have given them something to do, maybe even get them over. But sometimes, I think the WWE creative team don’t even think.
