WWE Hall Of Famer Kane is certainly one of the most respected and loved Superstars in the company. Kane has competed in numerous matches in his career and has been part of several memorable moments. That being said, it appears Kurt Angle believes WWE took advantage of Kane.
Kane made his debut during the infamous Hell In A Cell match at Badd Blood 1997, featuring The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels, where he ripped the cage door open and hit a Tombstone piledriver on The Deadman.
Kane would go on to have a tremendous career, winning World Titles and being part of numerous iconic feuds. That said, he also had controversial feuds with the likes of Lita and Edge.
While speaking on the latest episode of his Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle talked about Kane’s career in WWE. The WWE Hall Of Famer stated that he believes WWE took advantage of Kane.
“No. You know what? I didn’t hang out with Glen that often. He was a really nice guy. Nobody could [say a bad thing about him]. He was like the perfect employee; you know, he never got in trouble. Yeah. He did everything he was told to do. He showed up. He worked his ass off. I think he was a little too nice because the company kind of took advantage of him. He did a lot more, had a lot more losses than wins, and was a dominant character. So, you know, but he was one of those guys that was in the main event that really made other wrestlers because when you’re going up through the ranks, you had to go through Kane. And when you beat Kane, that’s a big plus on, you know, on your shoulder. You can continue knowing that you’re a bigger star after you defeat Kane. So he was one of the obstacles you had to go through to get to the main event.”
In 2021, Kane was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. We will have to wait and see whether The Big Red Machine will have one last match before hanging up his pro wrestling boots for good.
