• Kane Wants One Final Match Alongside The Undertaker
During a recent interview with TV Insider, Old School WWF Legend Kane talked about his new book, working with The Undertaker & more.
Below are the highlights:
On recounting stories for his book:
“Part of my process was going, ‘I think this will be a good story.’ Also, I remember telling someone a story, and I don’t think it’s a really big deal. Then they think it’s really entertaining.
So it’s about putting all that stuff together. I’d call people and basically go, ‘Hey, who was here? Where were we exactly?’ I can remember the big picture stuff, but I sometimes didn’t know the details. Then there are certain things that stick out in your mind that you know everything about it.
When people mention an event, I can say that was such and such show at such and such arena. I did have to go through what I wanted to say. In some cases I’d have to go back and talk to some people who were there to jog my memory. Then there was the case I was talking to a friend of mind asking why I didn’t put a certain thing in the book.
I said, ‘Well if I did, it would be a thousand pages. It was about what goes with the flow of the story of what is really important and doing it in a way that is entertaining and concise as possible. There is a lot of stuff I didn’t put in it that I wish I could. Maybe that will be used for another time.”
On his forwards being written by The Undertaker and Rand Paul:
“I can pretty much guarantee that this will be the only time in history The Undertaker and Rand Paul write a forward for the same book. I asked Mark [Taker] to do it, and he said he would be honored as well. It blew my mind.
Of course, asking Senator Paul was much of the same. Mark has meant so much to my career and to me personally. That was not even a question that I would ask him to do it.”
