• Bruce Prichard Recalls Kane Being Very Green, What WWF Did To Give Kane More Experience

During an episode of Something To Wrestle, Bruce Prichard recalled the time when Kane was very green and WWF deciding to send him to Jerry Jarrett’s promotion to give him more experience.

Below is what Prichard said:

“Glenn was greener than grass, Glenn was greener than the Christmas tree outfit that he wore as the Christmas menace or whatever the hell he was — Christmas Creature in Memphis, Tennessee which was hilarious!

Every time that picture would surface we’d kinda put it up around the dressing room for the Christmas Creature which was a green unitard basically head to toe with tinsel and balls hanging from it. So it was kinda funny.

Kane was just very, very green and Jerry Jarrett had promoted him as the second coming of Sid Vicious.

So we brought him in and took a look at him and he did have a great look. The big bastard, but he was not ready for prime time and we needed to get him a little more experience and kinda get him down on the farm before we were ready to bring him in. But we liked the size, the potential, plus he was a super nice guy on top of that.

There was something there, we didn’t have developmental, we didn’t have a Performance Center. We just had places like Memphis or someplace that had a school or someplace that they could work every day. That’s what needed to happen with Glenn at the time.”
