Veteran WWE wrestler Kane says he’s not thinking about an end-date for his wrestling career.
In a long-form interview with The Kingston Whig publication, Kane said he will keep advancing from WrestleMania to WrestleMania until he knows it’s time to retire.
“I’m still having a good time and I think I’m still performing at a pretty high level as well, so as long as I can do that, and I’m good, then I’ll hang around,” Kane said.
Kane, 48, added that he’s less hard on himself after matches, which has helped him stay mentally sharp to continue wrestling at a high level.
“I think at this point, I try to enjoy things more than I did earlier. I try to not put as much pressure on myself or freak out about things as I would earlier in my career. I just try to enjoy myself a little more, enjoy my interaction with the audience as well,” Kane said.
Kane also noted that he realizes at this stage of his career that “the window to really enjoy WrestleMania” is closing, so he’s going to enjoy each one.
“I’ve been around quite a while, but that’s really not par for the course. That’s an exception to the rule. The average WWE career is much shorter than that. I would say just to have a good time, do the best that you possibly can, of course, but enjoy yourself while you’re there,” said Kane, offering advice to the younger roster.
“I would like to be remembered as the guy who worked hard every night and set an example for the other guys in the locker room, and girls in the locker room. This is what a WWE superstar is supposed to do, this is how they’re supposed to act, this is how they’re supposed to treat the job, this is how they’re supposed to treat the WWE universe. More so than anything, I think that’s how I’d like to be remembered.”
