• WWF Legend Believes Triple H Can Take WWE To Even Greater Heights
Old School WWF Legend Kane, who now works as the Mayor of Knox County in Tennessee, was recently interviewed on The Doug Collins Podcast, where he talked about the future of the WWE and how he believes Vince McMahon’s son-in-law Triple H will take the promotion to even greater heights.
Here’s what The Big Red Machine had to say:
“You know, I don’t know, actually. I’m not close enough to the company to say that right now. I think as companies mature, you become more risk-averse. Because you want to keep what you have and you’re afraid of losing that.
Unfortunately, the downside is you become less aggressive and you don’t have that growth just because of where you’re at. I think you kind of see some of that, and that’s not a criticism, that’s just what it is, and that’s the kind of lifecycle of an organization. So a lot of stuff as Vince gets older, I think things will change, for better or worse, I don’t know.
A lot of folks lament, especially some of the wrestlers, how the company’s become much more corporate, but it had to, I mean, in this day and age, that’s just how things work. So you see these natural changes and then you see a change in leadership, I don’t know what’s going to happen.
Triple H, I think has an amazing mind for the wrestling industry. If I were to say, you know, one person that could really take the company and take it even higher and even further, it would be him. I think he’s just got that kind of talent. He’s a genius at this stuff. You know, so but we’ll see what the future holds, certainly.”
Kane feuded with Triple H on various occasions in 1999, 2001, 2002 and 2003.
Glenn Jacobs first wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation as Isaac Yankem, DDS (1995-1996) and Fake Diesel (1996-1997) before finally finding the perfect character for him in the fall of 1997, when he was brought back as The Undertaker’s evil brother Kane.
Kane was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021.
