NorthJersey.com conducted an interview with Kane promoting next Thursday’s SmackDown live event at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. He discussed his mask, how long it took him to be comfortable to cut promos, his political blog, and more.

When asked if he missed working in a mask, he responded: “Oh sure. In fact I just was talking to someone the other day, a fan, and they were talking about how they thought the mask was cool. They hit it right on the head because [they said] it added a definite air of mystery, which is very true. Right now, we have Rey Mysterio with a mask. And up until Rey won the world championship, I think I was the only masked wrestler to ever win the world championship. … I definitely think it’s a trade-off. Certainly there were things about wearing the mask that were unique.”

— In an update on former WWE star Rico, he is currently working as an Airport Control Officer for the Nevada Taxi Cab Authority in Las Vegas. He retired from the wrestling industry in July 2005.

— Jamie Noble, who now works with WWE in a backstage capacity, turns 34 years old today. Also celebrating a birthday is The Great Muta, who turns 48.

    @CIB yes but remeber in WCW days of the LWO. they removed Rey Rey’s Mask on Tv B4, but people would like to see him unmasked still.

  • Yeh

    yeah the mask was bad@ss but it was because of the whole fire storyline and that his face was possibly mangled underneath it. Man I miss those days

  • CiB

    Problem is you can’t stick his face back in the box. You can put a mask on Kane again all you want- fact is, we’ve all seen whats under there now, so it’s no mystery. You’d need some segment where he was (kayfabe) set on fire or something equally violent and hideously scarring happened to his head for it to have any value.

  • dont ask

    Yeaa, but noble has ã bunch of neck problems, best retired when he did

  • venom

    Kane should wear the mask again. Even if it’s just to wear as he walks to the ring.

    @ Ricardo
    Yes I remember and it was TLC

    I aint sayin… Im just sayin…

  • Sammo

    I didn’t realise Noble was so young… Weird that he retired so early in his career.

  • rikardo

    Logan you remember the TLC or was it triple threat ladder match he won all by himself while the hurricane was injured in the back

  • Logan

    I do miss seeing Kane with the ask. I remember him doing a backstage interview when he was teaming with The Hurricane. He grabbed the girl interviewing him gave her a huge kiss and screamed FREAKS RULE! And the skit with him The Rock and Hogan is classic…..memories.

    I liked Kane with the mask. Good stuff.
