A chronicle of Kane’s heel and face turns in WWE

Welcome back boys and girls to my journey down the rabbit hole of heel/face turns!

ICYMI - check out our first edition on the man who's probably turned again since we posted it, Big Show. This time, we deal with the Big Red Machine Kane. To set up ground rules with Kane, this isn’t a catalog for Glenn Jacobs, just the Kane character, so no Fake Diesel, no Christmas Creature, and no Isaac Yankem.

Without further ado, here we go into all of Kane’s turns since his memorable debut in 1997:

1. Badd Blood: In Your House: Debuts alongside Paul Bearer, interferes in Hell in a Cell match, costs Undertaker the match. (Heel)

2. Raw Is War - January 1998: Saves Undertaker from an attack by D-Generation X, salutes him with his 'Darkness Prayer' taunt, Undertaker reciprocates (Face)

3. Royal Rumble 1998: Costs Undertaker the WWF Championship in a Casket match against HBK, locks 'Taker in a casket, sets it ablaze. (Heel)

4. Judgment Day 1998: Paul Bearer betrays Undertaker, turning 'Taker heel and Kane face (Face)

5. Raw is War - December 1998: Kane joins the Corporation because they threatened to send him back to an insane asylum (Heel/Tweener)

10. Raw - June 2003: Kane loses a World Heavyweight Championship match to Triple H, is forced to unmask. His unmasking proves to render him emotionally unstable, and starts hellishly terrorizing everybody, from Rob Van Dam, to Shane and Linda McMahon (including attaching Shane’s balls to a car battery), to Steve Austin, even setting Jim Ross on fire during an interview. In November 2003, he helped Vince McMahon bury Undertaker alive. (HEEL)
