Kane might have looked out of place as the only guy in his ring gear at Survivor Series, but it didn’t happen by accident.
Glenn Jacobs joined Dr. Tom Prichard as the guests on the latest episode of the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast and talked about his appearance during the Undertaker’s Final Farewell segment. Several WWE Legends were in the ring for the ceremony, but Kane was the only one that was in gimmick for it. As he explained it, Jacobs says “Kane is Kane” and he’ll always be a character in WWE.
“No, no, no. I was supposed to [be in ring gear]. Yeah, here’s the thing: Kane is Kane and despite different incarnations and all that, that was the reason for that because Kane and Undertaker I think, you know, pulled back the veil somewhat and sometimes we forget that. But that’s kind of what separates them I think from a lot of the other formers is the fact that they’re truly characters and I know people speculated [but] that was the plan all along so, some of those things I think sometimes people [begin] speculating and outthink themselves a little too much into it.”
Jacobs also shared his thoughts on the passing of Jon Huber and said it came as a shock, but had nothing but great things to say about him.
“Yeah I was shocked. Friend of mine texted me and told me and I was like, ‘There’s no way’ and Jon, he was a very good guy. He was a sweetheart, just a good person. 2020 has been an awful year. First Pat Patterson recently passed away, so it’s just been… it’s been a terrible year and this added to it. Like I said, Jon was just a great guy, had a wonderful family and I don’t know what else to say.”
