• Kane Talks About His Respect For The Undertaker & Retirement
Old School WWF Legend Kane was recently interviewed by Sporting News to promote his new “Mayor Kane: My Life in Wrestling and Politics” autobiography.
During the interview, Kane said the following about The Undertaker:
“Mark has always been a big advocate of mine. Our first match was in Smoky Mountain Wrestling back in 1995 and then fast-forward to how so much of my career would be intertwined with his and Kane would be a big part of The Undertaker’s story.
I have an immense amount of personal respect for him. I would have never been able to do, in my career, what I was so fortunate to do if it hadn’t been for The Undertaker.”
When asked if he’ll ever retire from WWE, below is what the Devil’s Favorite Demon said:
“I think, with WWE, I don’t know if you ever really retire from it all the way, especially folks that are lucky enough to get in the position that I’m in.You can always do stuff and they can find creative ways to use you.
That’s one of the things I really look forward to. When people ask me if I’m looking forward to getting back in the ring, I’m like, ‘eh, I don’t know what I’d be doing, but I’m sure at some point I’ll do something.'”
