Happy May 19th!
TEN YEARS AGO TODAY!
Back in 2006, Imposter Kane was part of a shamelessly awesome storyline used to promote the release date of Kane’s debut movie, See No Evil. He started hearing voices in his head causing him to repeat the date over and over (May 19th). This came to a head as another Kane (in his classic 1997 garb) confronted him. Immediately the commentators sand-bagged it, saying it was an imposter (not attempting to play along with an illusion or physical manifestation of his psyche etc). Gallows here actually had his mannerisms down pat, but the crowd had absolutely NONE OF IT, especially his massive Kane Frizz wig!
His next appearance he did sort out the wig, gelled, looked perfect. Fans didn’t understand/like the storyline and their match at Vengeance 2006 was met with deafening silence. The next night on RAW, Kane demasked the imposter (it was Festus all along!), threw him out of the building, killing the storyline.
You can hear Gallows talk about it here:
Woot! If u haven’t seen it, watch our WBF Retrospective video!
