The brother of destruction Kane has been a very wonderful impact in the WWE. It was reported that The Big Red Machine was recently interviewed where he said things about his retirement. See highlight of the interview below:
Discussing about his longevity in the business, he said: “I think the key to the longevity is being able to reinvent yourself and to adopt and incorporate different things into your character. If you look at guys like Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Undertaker; the reason why they are around so long is because they keep things interesting and hopefully I have been able to do it as well.
A lot of it is because of being open to change. I think sometimes we put blinders on and define our personas very narrowly and are afraid to step outside the comfort zone; something I’ve never been afraid to do. Especially if you see the Team Hell No stuff I did with Daniel Bryan, it’s a significant departure from when I first started. And now, I’m sort of back to where I’m now. “
More so, Kane talked about his retirement when he said: “As long as I’m still performing at the top level, as long as I’m still having fun and as long as I feel that I’m giving the audience their money’s worth. That’s always been my benchmark for going on.
It’s rewarding for me now with some of the other guys coming up and seeing what they are going to be capable of doing in the future. And seeing them mature and I’m happy to be part of this process. “
