The word ‘superstar’ might not perfectly define one of the legendary assets of WWE’s Attitude Era, the great Kane, but his in-ring dominance is still fresh in the memory of millions. After winning a considerable number of accolades in his WWE tenure, Kane turned toward politics and is currently serving the people of Knoxville as a mayor.

During the conversation, the 11x Tag Team Champion didn’t shy away from revealing his Mount Rushmore of WWE stars. Mayor Jacobs noted, ‘If you were going to ask me, though, who were like the face of professional wrestling in WWE in their eras? I would say, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, and John Cena. Because I think those are the ones that define each of those eras.’

Despite rightly choosing the great superstars of the era, Kane missed out on his on-screen brother, The Undertaker. WWE Universe widely considers the duo as one of the most dominant if not the most dominant tag team of all time. The Brothers of Destruction are unforgettable to the fans for their iconic feuds, be it at WrestleMania 14 or the notorious clashes years later.

They were equally compatible as teammates and rivals at the same time. Not only do they have in-ring chemistry, but they also shared a strong off-screen bond too. Undertaker knew Kane’s talent and played a pivotal role in his WWE success.

Kane comes up with his other favorite WWE superstars

However, despite having such in-ring chemistry, Kane didn’t mention The Undertaker while naming the biggest stars of WWE for different eras. But he, nevertheless, didn’t forget to mention a few more of his favorites from the current roster.

The list includes Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, and Seth Rollins. According to Kane, The Tribal Chief didn’t deserve to be missed out as he is the ‘face of the company’ and a ‘tremendous performer’ as well. In the case of McIntyre, Kane is able to connect with him personally a lot, as it resembles his own story.
