Kane Reveals How The Undertaker Stopped His WWE Career From Ending
For most of his career in the WWE, The Undertaker used to be a locker room leader for all the other members. He used to be a communicator for the other talents who may be afraid to directly speak to Vince McMahon on their status. In a way, he used to be the ‘voice of the voiceless’ alongside the one who came up with newer ideas, regularly.
That included his own on-screen brother Kane character played by Glen Jacobs for more than two decades. Apparently, the gimmick could have been ended in a blink if it was not for The Undertaker, himself. He was the one to push WWE to bring back Kane on-screen on numerous occasions. Thus the legend of The Big Red Machine is still alive in the WWE.
During his appearance on Broken Skull Sessions with Stone Cold Steve Austin, the former WWF Champion Kane talked about his gimmick. He mentioned that it was for only one man, The Undertaker who was the reason behind his character getting stretched, over the years.

“Throughout the Kane storyline if The Undertaker would have decided that’s all I want, I want a one-off, that’s all it would have been. He was the guy that pushed everything.
I mean, if someone didn’t want to do business all I literally had to say was ‘Well, you can talk to Taker about it’ and that was the end of the conversation.
He always had my back and I knew that. We had conversations where ‘So and so wants to do this,’ and he’s like, ‘Well, it’s up to you, but I wouldn’t.’ I’m like, ‘Okay I’m not going to.’ All that stuff and then the Brothers Of Destructive, the actual tag team, and everything.”
Kane also shared an untold story of The Undertaker where he kept working despite being injured. He mentioned The Phenome’s toughness who worked in an injured state and refused to tell Vince McMahon or other officials about it. He knew the responsibilities he had as one of the top guys in the WWF. Hence, he thought of setting leadership by example rather than quitting,
“The Undertaker broke his ankle. I don’t know if he ever told you that. He was doing some backstage angle and he was chasing Paul Bearer and he kicked a TV or something and when he did his foot went back too far. Same deal with [The Undertaker]. When I worked with him in Houston he had a broken ankle.”
