Undertaker vs. Kane: The Story

In 1997, The Undertaker was already an established figure in the WWE, then the WWF.  At this time, he and his former manager, Paul Bearer,  were on the outs.  Bearer announces to the WWE audience that The Undertaker has a long-lost brother.  This went on for months.  After months of hype and speculation, Kane debuted at Badd Blood: In Your House, costing The Undertaker the victory in the first-ever Hell in a Cell match with Shawn Michaels.

Kane wore a mask, sported long hair, and wore red and black ring attire that almost entirely covered his body.  This all added to the mystique behind this ‘long lost brother.’ Kane and The Undertaker feuded with one another over the following year, during which time their history with one another was revealed and expanded upon.

Initially, The Undertaker refused to face him, saying he would not fight his own "flesh and blood". After partnering briefly, Kane betrayed his brother when he interfered in a match and cost him the WWE Championship.  After the match, Kane locked The Undertaker in a casket and set it on fire, though it was later revealed that Undertaker managed to escape the casket.  This provoked The Undertaker into returning to face Kane at WrestleMania XIV.  Undertaker vs Kane was a huge story line.

Kane was defeated by The Undertaker after three Tombstone Piledrivers. After the match, Kane and Paul Bearer attacked The Undertaker.

The rivalry finally came to head with the Inferno match.  The Undertaker defeated Kane in the Inferno match. In this match, Paul Bearer tried to help Kane by attacking The Undertaker; however, at one point in the match, as Kane was retreating backstage, Vader forced Kane back towards the ring, and The Undertaker attacked them both by jumping over the ring ropes surrounded by fire.

Undertaker vs KaneAfter this match, Bearer revealed even more of the Undertaker vs Kane Family History.  Bearer was revealed to be an employee at the funeral home in Death Valley owned by The Undertaker's parents. When Kane and The Undertaker were children, Kane "accidentally" burned down the funeral home, killing their parents and hideously scarring Kane both physically and mentally. The Undertaker thought Kane had been dead for years after the fire. During an episode of Raw, Kane and Bearer ‘exhumed’ the parents' bodies and brought them to the arena.

Bearer, who survived the fire, hid Kane in a mental asylum as he grew up and went on to form an alliance with The Undertaker. After suffering mistreatment at the hands of The Undertaker, Bearer opted to bring Kane into the WWE, then WWF, in order to gain vengeance upon The Undertaker.

No clear winner of the feud was ever decided upon because the brothers stopped fighting and teamed up together to take on the impending WCW Invasion.  The storyline, although entertaining, was quite unrealistic.  Kane’s mask was finally taken off and it was revealed that he was not badly burnt and could actually speak.  It was good while it lasted but you can only do so much before the WWE fans want something fresh and different.  None the less, Undertaker vs. Kane will go down in WWE history as one of the most memorable story lines.
