• Kane Comments On The Biggest Misconception About Vince McMahon
During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Old School WWF Legend Kane talked about his relationship with Vince McMahon.
Below are the highlights:
On if Vince McMahon was supportive of him being a Mayor:
“Absolutely. He was one of the first people I talked to about it because I had to have his support, of course, because I was still with WWE. Here’s the thing, Vince wants people to be successful; whether it’s in WWE or outside WWE because it helps his company.
Also, we’ve had a long relationship so in my case he wanted me to be happy in doing what I wanted to do. When we spoke he had a big grin about it. He wants me to be as happy as I can be.”
On the biggest misconception about Vince:
“I think that people think Vince McMahon is this heartless person that takes advantage of everyone, uses people until they are all used up and then discards the husk of the human being that he has pulled all of the energy out of. That is frankly not the case at all.
Does Vince McMahon make business decisions? Yes. I told him to his face one time, the one thing that you are bad at as a businessman is that you give people too many chances. They stab you in the back and then you turn around and bring them back.
In some cases, it’s because he feels that he can make money off of them and in other cases he just has some sort of emotional bond and loyalty, it really is. Almost to a fault with him, so that is the biggest misconception.
He is a business guy and has to make decisions based upon what he believes will lead to greater health of the company, whether we agree with it or not and in some cases I haven’t, but he is making business decisions on that.
But it’s also not like some inhuman devil that just wants to take advantage of people, that is truly not the case.”
