OO: Ozfan's Opinion - What the HELL NO happened with Kane?!

Hey everyone. I'm back with another opinion but instead of PPV Predictions or Booking Events, I will talk about Kane... I do have to ask though... WWE... have you gone nuts??? This started a while ago but its been taken too far and I am talking about the fact that Kane has become a joke... again. This year, he returned with a renewed persona and even brought back the mask and upper attire.
WWE Creative had him come back as a changed superstar with a comeback of his destruction gimmick. Everywhere he went, he destroyed superstars, mainly John Cena, Zack Ryder and even Randy Orton and defeated Orton at WrestleMania...his first one on one WrestleMania victory since that 8 second victory against Chavo Guerrero four years ago. Ever since those two straight losses to Orton shortly after, Kane began to downgrade again and within months, he went back to his joke persona, acting friendly. I know WWE is now 100% PG (until Rock comes back again) but this has gone too far.
From jobbing to new guys to slapping his tag team partner on the ass for motivation, Kane has become that superstar who WWE spent too much time building up as a bad guy...only to fail and turned them into somewhat of a jobber. Another example of this is Tensai (formerly A-Train/Albert). He was also dominant and pinned guys like John Cena and CM Punk, only to fall victim to Cena's five moves of doom, get pinned and since then he has jobbed to JOBBERS. He lost in 20-30 seconds to Tyson Kidd, which wasn't bad coz all big guys job now and again but to keep Tensai jobbing to low card competitors is just stupid. Another failed gimmick.
But back to Kane... if WWE don't start building Kane to main event status again, they might lose ratings. Kane is one of the few guys left from the Attitude Era, the other being Triple H, although he only wrestles 1 or 2 times a year and Undertaker only wrestles at WrestleMania. With Rock only making appearances with a Legends contract, Kane is the only thing keeping whats left of the Attitude Era alive. If you have a look in comparison from WWE in 1997 to WWE today, NO ONE probably would have guessed back then that Kane's gimmick would slowly but gradually turn him into a joke over the time span of 15 years.
[B]What I think WWE should do? [/B]
First of all: LOSE THE TAG TITLES! They are what is keeping his joke gimmick alive. Second: Have Kane turn on Daniel Bryan, turning him back to a heel and turning Bryan face and have Kane destroy everything around him again like he did in mid-2008 and maybe even assault the ring announcer or a commentator, preferably JBL. Lastly, have him compete and win against big time superstars like Big Show, Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio and even CM Punk. Hell, have Kane defeat Ryback clean, 1-2-3 in the ring and that should give him a boost. Get Kane back into main event status and even give him a title reign with either the World or WWE Title and if not a reign, a MAJOR push.
I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOYED THAT. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. BUT PLEASE!!! NO HATE. ONLY APPRECIATE.
