Slapstick Saturday presents: Flame that tune

Gallo Images

That's gotta be ... that's gotta be Kane! That's gotta be Kane! You know what that means. It means the music hits, the lights go off and the fire ... well, I guess two out of three ain't bad.

Charlie McGee is not impressed.

Welcome back to another edition of "Slapstick Saturday," Cagesiders, where your old pal Hulk Holland pokes fun at every botch, blooper and bomb the world of professional wrestling has ever given us.

This week, we're going Billy Joel on that ass, because we didn't start the fire.

Turns out, neither did Kane, who once again graces the double S thanks to some unforeseen tomfoolery. Not that the youngest of the Bearer brothers is a walking fail, but when you've been in the business as long as he has, you're bound to rack up a cool collection of greatest misses.

Like this little gem.

Part of Kane's gimmick, as it has been for what seems like forever, is the power of pyrokinesis. He can make shit go up in flames just by doing a high altitude version of the DX chop. Of course, it sure helps when ringside attendants properly set up his combustible canisters, something they failed to do in this clip.

What's great about this video is watching Big Show try to contain his laughter after Kane hits his mark and nothing happens. "The World's Largest Athlete" even braces for it (watch his face) just before detonation, and shares Kane's bewildered look when the whole flame gimmick, well, goes up in flames.

Figuratively speaking, of course.
