In real life:

A joint decision between WWE and Kane was reached, where it was decided that his character had become stale to the audience.

Coupling that with Kane wanting to shave his head, it was originally Kane's idea to lose the mask. Travelling with the mask and having to go through the necessary make-up and removal of such, caused a lot of unnecessary hassle for Kane. He'd gotten older and didn't need it.

WWE and Kane decided that removing the mask would make life easier for Kane and would freshen up his character.

On TV:

Eric Bischoff and Rob Van Dam decided that Kane was too negative and overly self-conscious. They worked together to implement a Mask VS World Championship match. If Kane lost the match, he would have to unmask.

This obviously backfired as Kane went on a rampage beating jobbers left, right and centre, and inevitably ended up in a feud with Rob Van Dam, and later, the McMahons' (Shane, in particular).

What was the reason for Kane's unmasking and why did they make him so much more weaker?

Kane unmasking was not his decision, Kane wanted to keep the mask as it was a large part of his character. A storyline writer came up with the idea and it was given the go ahead. Kane fought to keep his mask but it was to no avail. Kane didn't even want to change his mask to the one he had with no mouth cover but again it was out of his hands. Kane losing the mask is very unfortunate because it was who Kane was, this was a big mistake in my opinion. They should have listened to him and let him keep the mask. Kane is still one of the most dominant superstars ever to grace the WWF/WWE but Kane as a character will never be the same without his mask
