There is no question that Glenn “Kane” Jacobs has built a very impressive resume to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. However, the current mayor of Knox County has yet to be inducted, following a 22-year career under the same gimmick, and even longer as different gimmicks.
TMZ was able to catch up with the former two-time world champion, asked asked him who he feels should be in the WWE Hall of Fame who has not been inducted yet.
“Maybe me, I don’t know,” said Kane. “We’ll see. I don’t know, there’s a lot of great performers that I certainly think would be deserving of consideration.”
Kane was also asked whether CM Punk will face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 36. He responded, “Yeah, I don’t know. It’d be a pretty good match though, wouldn’t it?”
Since his debut as Kane in 1997, Jacobs has been very loyal to the company, placing himself in spots to help build the success of WWE. From unmasking and cutting his hair, to the infamous Katie Vick angle, to Corporate Kane, Jacobs has been used in both good and bad angles.
Despite some of the angles being harmful to his overall career retrospective, Kane has earned a portfolio as a former WWE Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, Intercontinental Champion, ECW Champion, and an impressive 11 reigns as WWE Tag Team Champion, 12 including his WCW World Tag Team Championship reign with his Brothers of Destruction partner, The Undertaker.
Most recently, Kane added a very brief run with the 24/7 Championship in his decorated list of accomplishments, pinning R-Truth on the September 16, 2019 episode of Raw. Giving R-Truth a tour of the Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee, Kane brought a referee disguised as a police officer, and was able to win the title. However, R-Truth would regain the title later in the evening.
