Kane calls his storyline with Undertaker ‘the best piece of epic storytelling WWE has ever done’

Now that Kane is living the Glenn Jacobs life and attempting to light the way to a brighter future for the people of Knox County, Tennessee, he’s doing some reflecting on the pro wrestling career that is coming to a close. He spent most of that career either fighting with or against Undertaker.

To his eyes, what they put together over the years was the best story WWE has ever told (from his interview with the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling):

“Through the years we've been together through so much. Very unique the both of us. Bray Wyatt is sort of the new character who has the super-natural component and the cool-creepiness but the fact that we were able to come in and be such fierce rivals but yet everything turned and to be able to join forces and ally with ourselves and split and come back again, if you look (and I'm a big fan) of old NWA you would have these relationships and feuds just go on for years and years and it was the same type of deal. I've said this many times and I really believe this is true. I believe that the Kane / Undertaker story if you look at epic storytelling like Greek mythology, that is what it is. It is the best piece of epic story telling that the WWE has ever done. There is a huge story arc with all of these back stories and all of these extremely powerful characters and by that I mean the personalities and to be able to make that work and work as well as it always has is just amazing. Hats off to Vince McMahon for being able to do that with the creative teams and his vision as well as Taker and as well as my good friend the late Paul Bearer. It was a lot of moving parts and he was always able to make them work smoothly and the finished product was beautiful.”
