It’s almost time for WrestleMania 32, and fans are preparing for the event just as much as the superstars of WWE are doing. For some superstars, it will be the first time on the biggest wrestling stage of them all, and for others, it will be yet another feather in their cap. For some of the stars who have been around for years and years, the possibility of it being their last WrestleMania is real, and Kane has now spoken on that situation for him.
Could this be the final WrestleMania for the “Big Red Machine”?
Kane has done virtually everything in WWE and that includes winning numerous titles, being a corporate executive with The Authority, and who else gets to say they are the brother of The Undertaker? Yes, he’s been around for decades and has done a lot, but is his time coming to an end?
The Whig spoke to Kane about a number of topics, and one of them was the chance that this could be the last time he ever appears or wrestles at a WrestleMania. It’s hard to imagine WWE without the fire and brimstone, but is it happening soon?
“Who knows, man. I’m still having a good time and I think I’m still performing at a pretty high level as well, so as long as I can do that, and I’m good, then I’ll hang around.”
While it may or may not be his final WrestleMania, the 48-year-old superstar isn’t getting any younger, but he’s still having fun. He’s been in the role of Kane ever since 1997, when he made his debut at WWE: In Your House during a Hell in a Cell match.
Since then, he has been a huge part of WWE and dominated the scene as he’s won numerous titles throughout the years. He’s been the ECW Champion, WWE Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, Intercontinental Champion, Hardcore Champion, multi-time tag champion, and so much more.
He’s also been fortunate enough to never have to deal with any serious injuries. Throughout his career, there have been some bumps and bruises, but Kane has managed to keep himself healthy and off of the sidelines due to injuries.
“I’ve been fortunate. As far as what I can control, I just try to take care of myself, stay in good shape and frankly, being a big guy helps as well. Even though I do do some things like fly off the top. I also don’t take as many risks as some of the smaller guys do so I think that’s helped me as well.
“I’ve been pretty fortunate in that I haven’t had many injuries. I’ve broken my hand, I threw my back out once and then I’ve had some pretty bad cuts, but that’s been about it. I’ve been able to avoid most of the really, really bad injuries and career-ending injuries.”
As the main page for WrestleMania 32 shows, Kane is not yet listed in a match of any kind for the big event in early April. There is still time though and many other matches will be announced, but Kane also isn’t involved in a program or feud of any kind right now either.
Still, there are plenty of opportunities for him to be a part of the show. If all else fails and nothing serious gets started, Kane could end up in the 3rd annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal which is becoming a much bigger deal each year.
Known as the “Big Red Machine” and even the “Big Corporate Machine” at times, Kane has had a wrestling career that’s spanned two decades. He’s in good health and doesn’t look ready to hang up the boots just yet, so if it’s up to him at all, WrestleMania 32 is not going to be his last one.
