One last ride for the Brothers of Destruction?
While Kane is fully engaged in politics as the Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, the 'Big Red Machine,' still makes some time for wrestling. Not counting his short reign as the WWE 24/7 Champion, Kane's last match took place at WWE Crown Jewel 2018 when he teamed with The Undertaker to battle Triple H & Shawn Michaels. And if Kane were to return for one more match, he would want Undertaker by his side.
“Even though Undertaker and I had a match with DX that has never happened before, it would be great to reunite the Brothers of Destruction,” he told Scott Fishman of TVInsider. “That is always so special. That would be for me the ultimate thing.”
Kane came up during a time when social media was barely an idea, much less a top outlet for promotion and news in the world. Later in the interview, Kane discussed the difficulties of staying true to a character and telling a long-term story with social media involved.
“It has become harder because there is so much more content and exposure demanded. We look at the internet and social media and all the different platforms we are competing against. One of the things that frustrated me is that we move so quickly sometimes it felt like you weren’t getting the depth of the storyline because you just had to put stuff out and things would get lost. That’s the nature of the business," he said. "...You look at a guy like Bray Wyatt who has done a phenomenal job. That character has really taken off. It’s difficult. I think it’s harder than ever to get into that kind of patient story-telling. It’s an unfortunate evolution of the business. But I think what Bray Wyatt shows is that we have a performer who can do it and given the opportunity, it’s still something that strikes a chord with people. To me, that’s one of the best parts of the wrestling business is the stories. Sometimes they get sacrificed a little bit to keep the machine going. So it’s nice to see a guy like Bray have that opportunity to really get over as a character in a unique storyline.”
