Kane Discusses The Biggest Misconception of Vince McMahon, Running For Mayor


Kane was a guest on this week’s Busted Open Radio with Bully Ray. He discussed running for Mayor as a WWE Superstar and one of the biggest misconceptions about Vince McMahon.

Not hiding from his WWE past while running for mayor: We tried to use it to help us with my campaign. And when I say ‘we’ – me and my advisors – my campaign manager and other advisors. We knew we couldn’t run from it and why would I want to run from it? I mean I am proud of what I did. And anytime that you are able to get to the level of WWE and stay there for a long time, I mean, you’re good at what you do and you should be proud of that.

On people thinking Vince McMahon is the devil: I think it is that Vince is this heartless person that takes advantage of everyone, and uses people until they are all used up and then discards the husk of the human-being that he has pulled all of the talent and energy out of. That is frankly not the case at all. Does Vince McMahon make business decisions? Yes. But one time I told him this to his face: I was like, “The one thing that you are bad at as a businessman is that you give people too many chances. They stab you in the back and then you turn around and bring them back in.” And in some cases it’s because he feels that he can make money off of them, but in other cases, he just has some sort of emotional bond or something like that. It’s loyalty. It really is. Almost to a fault with him, so that is the biggest misconception. He is a business guy and has to make decisions based upon what he believes will lead to greater health of the company, whether we agree with it or not and in some cases I haven’t. But he is making business decisions on that. But it’s also not like some inhuman devil that just wants to take advantage of people, that is truly not the case.
