• Kane Comments On How The Undertaker Prevented His WWF Run From Ending
During his appearance on Broken Skull Sessions, former WWF Champion Kane talked about how his gimmick continued because of one man – The Undertaker.
Below is what Kane said:
“Throughout the Kane storyline if The Undertaker would have decided that’s all I want, I want a one-off, that’s all it would have been. He was the guy that pushed everything.
I mean, if someone didn’t want to do business all I literally had to say was ‘Well, you can talk to Taker about it’ and that was the end of the conversation.
He always had my back and I knew that. We had conversations where ‘So and so wants to do this,’ and he’s like, ‘Well, it’s up to you, but I wouldn’t.’ I’m like, ‘Okay I’m not going to.’ All that stuff and then the Brothers Of Destructive, the actual tag team and everything.”
