With the Greatest Royal Rumble a little over a week away, the WWE is looking to fill the match with all the talent it can muster. The 50-man rumble, which still has no prize for its winner, has lost one of its competitors, however.
Kane has been removed from the match and the PPV as of today. No word yet on why the Big Red Machine will miss the event, but it is believed that it has something to do with the mayoral race that he’s a part of.
Kane is running for Mayor in Knox County, Tennessee, and the Republican primary takes place a few days after the event on May 1. The Devil’s Favorite Demon hasn’t been seen since losing the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34.
So it seems that, for the time being, the former WWE Champion will be hanging up his wrestling boots to focus more on his campaign, if only for a few days.
