Kane recently became the mayor of Knox County in Tennessee, which comes off the back of his loss at Extreme Rules, where he teamed up with Daniel Bryan in a losing effort against The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships.

Kane was almost taken out of the match following a backstage attack from the Champions before it was later reported by WWE.com that he had suffered a broken ankle.

Kane recently spoke to Impact Wrestling star Tyrus on the FOX News Rundown podcast where he stated that he wanted to change the stereotype of wrestlers being seen as jocks.

“I remember Stephanie McMahon once saying there’s a reason why we’re not called wrestlers. We’re called superstars because there’s so much more than we do,” said Jacobs via WrestlingInc.

“Even within our WWE careers, all the things that we’re asked to do. Our promotion, dealing with the media, all of that stuff is more than just a guy or gal in the ring for 10 minutes a night and put on a show.”

Female wrestlers are also now referred to as superstars thanks to the Women’s Revolution, which could be because the signing of Ronda Rousey has boosted the profile of women’s wrestling in recent years.

As part of the interview, Kane also revealed that he would only be able to return to WWE for special events now that he was seen as the mayor of Knox County, which obviously comes with many responsibilities.

“Basically, if I do anything, I’ll just do some special events. But, WWE has been a part of my life for over 20 years, I am very proud of my career, I’m very proud of working for the company, I’m proud of people like you (Tyrus), I’m proud of so many of my friends and colleagues.”
