Kane: Why Vince McMahon Ditched The 'Imposter Kane' Angle In 2006

The angle was short-lived

Kane has revealed that Vince McMahon made the decision to cut short the 'imposter Kane' angle in WWE in 2006 because of how bad the the fake Kane's wig looked.

Doc Gallows played the fake Kane in a short storyline in mid-2006, defeating the real Kane at Vengeance before being attacked by The Big Red Machine and thrown out of Raw the next night. 

The WWE Hall Of Famer has opened up that McMahon went nuts at the fake Kane's hair, and believed it actually made the complete Kane gimmick look bad.

Speaking during a panel at theSteel City Con, Kane revealed: "In Drew’s case [Doc Gallows], it’s kind of funny because they had that short-lived Kane thing, right? That he was the imposter Kane and what happened was...So I’d gone down and seen Drew’s outfit and stuff and we’d kind of worked a little bit together before he debuted as that, down where NXT was at that time in Georgia and he’s wearing this wig and it was like a synthetic hair wig and it was terrible and I was like, I remember calling I think Johnny Laurinaitis or someone and saying, ‘It’s great but the wig’s gotta go, okay? The wig looks as fake as all get out.’

"They didn’t switch the wig and there he is on live TV with this frizzy hair and Vince went ballistic. Not at him, but at the fact that the thing looked silly and that was actually why that whole thing was ditched was because Vince thought it made such a terrible first impression and actually made Kane, my character look bad because here you have this person — you got this guy with bad hair beating me up basically. But you know, the imposter Kane, you can tell that it was very poorly done."
