Former WWF Champion Kane has asked for time off from WWE programming and has been out of action since December 2016 with nagging injuries.
Apart from nagging injuries, he needs time to run for the Knox County Mayoral seat in 2018 and work on The Jacobs Agency (his insurance agency).
Despite not working any WWE date for about 3 months now, Kane’s WWE contract has a $905,000 downside with first class travel and accomodation.
Kane was involved in a feud with The Wyatt Family before he took time off. He’s expected to make his return to WWE programming at WrestleMania 33 for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
