Kevin Smith and WWE's Kane Confirmed for This Year's MEFCC

We can't deny we're extremely excited for this year's Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC). As one of the biggest events on Dubai's calendar each year, the event brings the best and biggest stars, guests and entertainment from the cosplay world directly to the Emirate,

With names like The Walking Dead's Josh McDermitt, Game of Throne's Liam Cunningham, Heroes' Greg Grunberg as well as Cas Anvar, Pooja Batra, Mohammad Alaribi Tourgane and Tarek Alarabi Tourgane, we're sure the 2017 version of the event will live up to the incredible expectations the event sets for its fans each year. 

New names continue to be announced in the run-up to the event, with more to be confirmed later this week... 

WWE's Kane is Coming to MEFCC

Kane is a household name for any fans of WWE... And anyone familiar with the superstar will be aware that the professional wrestler and actor is a force to be reckoned with. 

Dubbed a monstrous abomination, Kane is 7 feet tall and weighs in at more than 300 pounds... His appearance is something that could be extracted directly from your childhood nightmares. Consumed by an infernal desire to set ablaze the lives of his fellow superstars, Kane leaves a scorched path of desctruction behind his fiery footsteps.

The announcement of his appearance at this year's MEFCC is no doubt an exciting one for wrestling fans in the region, following the appearance of WWE's Randy Orton at the 2016 event.

Nicknamed The Big Red Monster, some of his more demented acts have included setting a WWE Hall of Famer on fire, hitting a WWE executive with a tombstone, kidnapping too many superstars to mention and forcing a WWE Diva to marry him. No one is safe from his twisted desires and demonic impulses. Least of all, it would seem, Kane himself. 

For years, the sadistic superstar wore a ghoulish face mask designed to conceal hideous burns from a fire supposedly started by Undertake years before. Until, much to the surprise of fans, he revealed his face to the world. 

Kane’s career has been marked by some stellar and brutally woeful contests in the ring against some of the biggest names in WWE, including The Undertaker, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Edge and others. He has also pioneered some of the most vicious stipulations of all time, including First Blood, Inferno, Stretcher and even Till Death Do Us Part Matches.

Like his sibling, Kane wields a highly-decorated mantle of WWE glory, including reigns as WWE Champion, World Heavyweight Champion and ECW Champion.

A live Q&A broadcast with Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith first came to attention as the writer/director of a film called Clerks. It's been all downhill ever since.
