SportsKeeda reports that the reason why Kane has not been seen on WWE TV is because he asked for time off in order to run for the mayor of Knox County in 2018. He moreover plans on working on his insurance agency, The Jacobs Agency, which he runs with his wife.
Kane has a high-paying contract with WWE with “millions tucked away” and a downside guarantee of $905,000 per year with first class travel and accommodations. He has been working for WWE since 1995, and he has made his money through several contract extensions. His current contract is set to expire next year.
The website believes that it could be his last deal with the company, as he may be considering retirement.
