Kane denies he is considering WWE retirement

The impending 'New Era' in WWE is set to usher in the arrival of a whole host of wrestlers from NXT, and the WWE appears to be making a concerted effort to move towards a more youthful roster.

With that in mind, there has been some talk about what the future holds for the elder statesman of the main roster and whether, in the case of long-standing stars like The Undertaker and Kane, retirement beckons.

Speaking over the weekend, however, The Demon Kane addressed talk of his retirement and, in doing so, rejected the idea in pretty emphatic style:

“Not really. It’s still fun," the 49-year-old Superstar said, via 411Mania, when asked if he was contemplating quitting the company. 

"I have a lot of fun now with the younger guys and just being in the position that I’m in, as more of a mentor at times. I’ve also been very fortunate that I haven’t had many injuries, so my body still feels good."

Kane has been striking fear into opponents in the WWE (or WWF) for over two decades now and certainly has the respect and knowledge of the business to be a useful asset to the company as an influx of new talent arrives.

Feeling good

Nevertheless, he has hardly been at his title-winning prime in recent years, and a lot of WWE fans would probably rather see the future Hall of Famer walk away before he damages his reputation. Kane, though, believes he is still capable of performing at his peak:

"I can’t say it feels as good as it did when I was 25, but it still feels good and I can still do most of the things that I used to be able to do.

"And I still think that I perform at a high level, even when I’m in there literally against guys that are half my age sometimes. I think they still have to keep up with me.”
