Kane has embarked on new adventures now that his time as a full-time WWE Superstar is no longer. The former WWE Champion was last seen in action when he and The Undertaker lost to Triple H and Shawn Michaels in a tag team match at the WWE Crown Jewel special last November.
Kane, better known as Glenn Jacobs, became the mayor of Knox County in 2018 and opened a new wrestling school in Knoxville, Tennessee with Dr. Tom Prichard that is called Jacobs-Prichard Wrestling Academy.
While doing a recent interview on The Steve Austin Show where he talked about various topics, he addressed the comparisons between his wrestling school and the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
“It’ll probably be some of the same stuff to some extent,” stated Kane. “A lot of it is if you are looking at a lot of these different schools you have to consider how these folks can help me. It’s not only about what you are going to learn, but how can they help you advance and I think of course Tom Prichard and I can do that as well.
“Eventually, if anybody wants to be in WWE at some point, then getting into the Performance Center is the path to WWE. So, in many ways this is the first step if you even want to get into WWE to do that. Then, you have people who just want to get into the wrestling business, which is great too. One of the nice things about what is going on in the independent scene is that it has really revitalized independent wrestling, which is another path to go to. But either way we are hoping to get folks who are starting out to give them the basics, which is in-ring performance, promos, that sort of stuff. Really, nowadays promoting yourself is just as important as anything and making a name for yourself on social media, and from there if you have people who are a little more advanced you can polish them up and help them take that next step.”
