Controversial WWE Hall Of Famer Open To WWE Return

WWE Hulk Hogan Kane The Rock Dwayne Johnson

There’s no doubt that during his time performing as Kane, Glenn Jacobs had a career worthy of the WWE Hall of Fame.

He hasn’t stepped inside the squared circle since making a brief appearance at the 2021 Royal Rumble, but speaking in a new interview with PWMania, he made it clear that he hasn’t closed the door on a potential return to the sports entertainment giant.

“I’ll always leave that door open. In WWE we never say never. I don’t know what will happen. I do some stuff here and there in the WWE. That’s a part of me and it’s something I enjoy and want to do for the rest of my life. If it’s something in the ring, I don’t know. Maybe you have to ask Kane that question.”

The real life mayor has come under fire recently for voicing controversial views on such topics as abortion, drag performances, and COVID-19 mandates. He was re-elected as mayor of Knox County, TN during an August 2022 election.

Kane Was Inducted Into The WWE Hall Of Fame In 2021

In April of 2021, the Big Red Machine was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2021. He was inducted by his on-screen brother The Undertaker, who would enter the Hall of Fame the next year as part of the class of 2022.

Continuing in his interview, Jacobs reflected on the honor of being inducted, calling it “surreal.”

“It’s the pinnacle of what we do. There aren’t that many people in it. To be honored like that with people I watched, and idolized as a kid growing up like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and of course Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, and Bruno Sammartino, it’s hard to believe that I’m in there too. It’s hard for me to think I belong in that group. It’s a tremendous compliment, and still, even now it’s almost surreal to even think about.”
