The pro wrestling world is full of callbacks to its glory days and some very bizarre additions, thanks to the prevalence of the internet. One such phenomenon is Blue Kane, who has evolved into a living meme as well as a wrestler. Now known as Blue Pain, WWE’s perception of him has come to light.

The emergence of Blue Kane in the wrestling scene last year caused quite a stir online, largely due to just how similar he is to the original Big Red Machine Kane. He is a bonafede indie wrestler but got into trouble with Twitter in the past.

During an interview with Cultaholic Wrestling’s Tom Campbell, Blue Pain discussed potential opponents he nearly faced, aside from Matt Cardona. Pain claimed that he heard from some of his friends in WWE that many actually love his character, even if the legal team do not.

“Well there was Ryback! He was one. Ryback said that he would wrestle me for $25,000 and I quote-tweeted and said I’d wrestle him for $250, I’m much cheaper. To be fair, Ryback did send me a few kind messages… I’ve heard indirectly from some friends in WWE that quite a lot of people are like, ‘Oh my god, I love Blue Kane.’ I’m like, ‘People in WWE like Blue Kane even if people in WWE Legal don’t.'”


Matt Cardona and Blue Pain also had a storied rivalry that culminated in solid match at Joey Janel’s Spring Break. Regardless, it’s unlikely Blue Pain will ever debut in WWE and he has accepted that fact.
