Big Show vs. Kane
This week's show continues the build to WWE's biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania 30 which takes place on Sunday April 6th at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Pro Wrestling Examiner's Perspective: Show vs 'Corporate' Kane has been done as a main event on non-televised house shows recently by WWE recently, and the reviews have not been good for this match-up of two former tag team partners. Kane's dull corporate look is not doing him any favors. This Examiner prefers to see Kane dressed a 'big red monster', not some lifeless thug wearing dress pants. Both of these big men seem like odd men out of this year's Wrestlemania in terms of a featured singles match, but it's possible both men could likely be featured in the Andre the Giant Memorial Over-the-top 30 Man Battle Royal. The Battle Royal for WM30 was announced by the show's special host Hulk Hogan on 'RAW' this week.
