Superstar Scores: KANE (Glenn Jacobs) WWE Career Retrospective Ranking

Posted by Anthony Mango Thursday, April 1, 2021

Welcome to another edition of SUPERSTAR SCORES! For entry #28 in this series, we'll be focusing on a 2021 Hall of Famer—someone who is The Devil's Favorite Demon and The Big Red Machine. He's a former multi-time world champion and a mayor. Who is it? Well, it's gotta be KANE!!!

If you're unfamiliar with how the segment works, here is a quick breakdown: Each edition, a wrestler will be put under the spotlight and rated on a 0-100 scale based on 10 categories that have been broken up into 5 umbrella sections: In the Ring Skills, On the Mic Skills, Appearance, Behavior, and Crowd Reaction.

The rating scale is as basic as you can get: 0-1-2-3-4 | 5 | 6-7-8-9-10. It follows the Three-Count Critique method of green being the good, yellow being in the middle, and red being the bad. A perfect 100 is the goal.

KANE

IN THE RING SKILLS

Athleticism: Does the person have a good signature moveset and finisher? Can they perform a wide variety of moves on a regular basis and not botch them?

My Rating = 8

Discussion on this topic and everything else will be in the podcast below!

Psychology: The wrestler's ability to tell a story in the ring. Do they make you believe it's real or do they forget to sell their injuries properly? Can they make a long match stay interesting and not get boring?

My Rating = 8

ON THE MIC SKILLS

Charisma: If they get a mic, can they cut a promo without stuttering? Are they repetitive or do they keep things fresh?

My Rating = 8

Character: Is their gimmick(s) interesting? Can they pull off being both a heel and a face?

My Rating = 10

APPEARANCE

Physique: Are they in the proper shape for their gimmick or are they out of shape? (note: someone like Mabel isn't supposed to look like John Morrison, but Matt Hardy gaining weight deducts his points).

My Rating = 7

Entrance: Their music, the pyro if they have any, whatever taunts or actions they do to make it interesting.

My Rating = 10

BEHAVIOR

Backstage Professionalism: Are they a locker room leader or do they cause problems behind the scenes? Are they bogged down in politics? Do they put other people over or screw people over?

My Rating = 9

Public Relations: Does this wrestler project a bad image onto the company with arrests and such, or are they someone that promotes the company well, does charities, talk shows, etc?

My Rating = 9

CROWD REACTION

Popularity: How loud are the cheers and boos for them? Do they sell merchandise? Are ratings up or down when they're on screen? How many Twitter and Facebook followers do they have?

My Rating = 8

Credibility: Is this person someone you would see as a main-eventer and a future legend or are they doomed to forever be a jobber?

My Rating = 9

TOTAL SCORE: 86/100

FINAL THOUGHTS: Kane is truly one of the best "big men" to ever step foot in the business. His size, strength and athleticism are only surpassed by his character, who worked as a top tier monster and comedy act, somehow. Glenn Jacobs is truly a Hall of Famer in every sense of the word.
