Sources (Wrestling Observer Newsletter) say that WWE superstar Kane and his wife have started their own insurance company in Knoxville, TN called The Jacobs Agency.
He has told people that he is going to retire soon, but with him making good money it’s hard to walk away. According to reports, he’s going to continue wrestling while he can still make the big money.
Also, there was a feeling in the political world that at some point Kane would be interested in running for public office as a Libertarian party candidate.
Andrews Take: Kane is a Hall of Famer and there is no doubt about it. I am not the biggest fan of corporate Kane, but it’s a change and it’s different for him. Also, you can’t blame him for sticking around for good money. I do not have a problem with this and I want to know what you think in the comment area below.
– So apparently the story told by Jim Ross of Vince McMahon seats himself on live TV (Raw) right before going out to the show, it upset the chairman and he took a jab at Ross through the commentary team (JBL) and here’s why. The story Ross told on Opie & Anthony made its way across the internet and to sites like TMZ. The jabs at Ross on RAW were clearly set up and JBL is often the voice of Vince on commentary. Another sign the segment was set up is that Lawler and Ross are legitimately best friends.
Dave Meltzer gave some light on this story in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter:
Vince came back, changed clothes and was holding the dirty pants in his hand. Vince tried to chase Brisco down with it to make him vomit, and Triple H grabbed Brisco to hold him so he couldn’t get away but Brisco used one of his old amateur wrestling moves and escaped.
Andrews Take: Jim Ross is no longer a part of WWE and he was simply promoting his new “An evening with Ross” event. If Vince McMahon can do what he did, but can’t take the story getting out there and then can’t handle JR saying one negative thing about him. Yet Vince can fire him several times, make fun of him when he was there and when he was not there. Make fun of his bell’s palsy, but can’t take this and gets upset by it then that’s on him.
