WWE Director of Operations Kane recently spoke to LocalBozo.com to promote See No Evil 2. Here are some highlights;
LB: In WWE’s PG world, it’s a bit surprising that the company is releasing a horror movie that’s rated R- which is certainly going to appease fans just begging for a return to a product that caters more toward adults. How fulfilling was making the film for you personally knowing that you’d be able to go all out with a script and with effects that wouldn’t skimp on the slasher side of a true horror film?
Kane: What was neat about “See No Evil 2″ is- of course it is a horror movie, but there’s also a lot of other elements in it. It’s not just a slasher flick. It has a good plot. It has very good characters. Also, in “See No Evil 2″ we get to explore the life of Jacob Goodnight a lot more. We see the influence that his mom has had on him and get into that further. So it’s really a throwback to the old-fashioned 80′s style slasher flicks.
LB: The Kane character is one that’s actually celebrating its 17th anniversary in WWE this month- but you’ve actually been with the company for closer to twenty years. First off, with two decades in the wrestling business, how’s your body feeling on a day to day basis and are you still enjoying the grind?
Kane: Yeah I still enjoy it. The hardest part about our job is the travel. People see what we do in the ring and of course, that is physical and it is challenging. But I always find that it’s the travel which gets to me more than anything. But I’ve been fortunate that I don’t have any really terrible injuries so in that respect I’m doing very well. And I also try to keep myself in as good of shape as I can. I work out pretty much every day and I’m still feeling good after all these years.
LB: Looking back on your career, what’s perhaps your favorite match or favorite moment that you don’t think gets the credit or has had the lasting power that it probably deserves?
Kane: I’m not really sure. My favorite moment was beating “Stone Cold” Steve Austin for the WWE Championship and the thing about that is- yeah, I only held it for a day but nevertheless, the next night on [USA’s “Monday Night] Raw,” the match between Austin and I did the highest rating that “Raw” had drawn to that point. That felt like one of the launching points for the ‘Attitude Era.’ That was one of the points to where things shot up from there. And the fact that, you know, there I am in the ring with arguably the guy that would go on to become the most popular wrestler in WWE history and I’m part of all that- so that was a really big moment for me. There’s been a lot of other stuff of course, but that’s my favorite moment. It would be that one.
