Kane has opened up about his future with WWE.
Kane started his pro wrestling in 1992. He wrestled in promotions such as Smoky Mountain Wrestling and the United States Wrestling Association before joining the WWE in 1995. Following his debut in 1997, Kane remained a pivotal component of the company's Attitude Era of the late 1990s and early 2000s
Kane is a three-time world champion (having held the WWE Championship, ECW Championship, and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship once each) and a 12-time world tag team champion, having held the WWE World Tag Team Championship, WCW Tag Team Championship and WWE Tag Team Championships with various partners. He is also a two-time Intercontinental Champion. Kane also holds the record for cumulative Royal Rumble eliminations at 44.
Kane, who is a longtime supporter of libertarian political causes, announced his intention to run for the office of mayor of Knox County, Tennessee in 2017 and has been off of WWE TV since then.
Chuck Carroll of CBS Sports recently conducted an interview with Kane. During the interview, he was asked about how WWE has prepared for him for politics and if he still watches the program.
“I’ve been in WWE for 22 years and reached a point in my career where, within the locker room, I’m one of the people that guys come to if something needs to be discussed. I’m also one of the people that the WWE executives, if there is a problem in the locker room, I’m one people that is consulted about that. … It’s actually my involvement in WWE that I’ve found hopefully will help me out in the political realm.”
I catch a little most Mondays. I’m really happy to see Braun Strowman. People ask me who reminds me of me, and it’s probably him. So, I’m really happy to see him doing so well. I think WWE is in very good hands with — they’re not even the younger generation anymore — but with the people that are there now carrying the flag for them.
Kane defeated Luke Harper in a rematch on the November 29, 2016, episode of SmackDown Live before taking time off to concentrate on work for his political career. When asked if he is retired from pro wrestling, Kane said, “We have a saying in the WWE: never say never. So, I can’t answer that question.”
