Former WWE Champion Kane, real name Glenn Jacobs who is Mayor of Knox County, recently appeared on Busted Open Radio to promote his new book, Mayor Kane: My Life in Wrestling and Politics.
In the interview, he discussed how people feel as well as the biggest misconception about WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.
“I think is that Vince is this heartless person that takes advantage of everyone, and uses people until they are all used up. 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. 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 some cases, it’s because he feels that he can make money with them. 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. 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. In some cases I haven’t. He is making business decisions on that. It’s also not like some inhuman devil that just wants to take advantage of people. That is truly not the case.”
