Kane: I Can't Say Enough About Sting As A Human Being; He's One Of The Biggest Stars Of All Time

Glenn "Kane" Jacobs comments on Sting's impending retirement.

The Kane and Sting characters never got to step in the ring. However, Glenn Jacobs, performing under the name Bruiser Mastino, did wrestle Sting in an enhancement match on WCW Saturday Night on the March 6, 1993 episode.

Sting and Kane would eventually both be part of WWE for a short time in 2015, but they never got the chance to step in the ring.

Now, Sting will compete in his farewell bout at AEW Revolution, teaming up with Darby Allin to face Matthew and Nicholas Jackson, The Young Bucks, for the AEW World Tag Team Championship.

During a recent interview with David Gornowski, Kane reflected on his personal interactions with Sting, including the match they had early in his career. The former WWE Champion had nothing but glowing words for the man behind the face paint as a human being and praised his abilities as an athlete as well.

"I didn't get to work with him that much. I was actually one match with him in WCW. I had one match in WCW and that was with Sting," said the WWE Hall of Famer. "That was very early in my career. Then, he came to WWE late in his career, he had already retired and come back and that was also late in my career, but Steve is a really great guy. From my interactions with him, I can't say enough about the human being. He's always treated me very well. He was also one of my favorites back when I was younger, so it's pretty cool when you get to work with the people he watched on TV and go, 'Wow, this is really awesome! I'm in the ring with Sting. How cool is that?'

"When he was in his prime, he was a great athlete," Kane continued. "He could move. People forget he's not a small guy. He's probably 6'3 and 260 lb, but he could do all the things you think of a much smaller person doing. So, he's an impressive athlete, and frankly, one of the biggest Superstars of all time, especially in WCW."

Elsewhere in this interview, Jacobs spoke on whether or not he would ever return to the squared circle himself. Read his comments here.
