The Undertaker once helped Kane get a fair deal on his wrestling memorabilia. What is the memorabilia you ask? The props used by a wrestler which have now become collectible artifacts.

Last year, former WWE superstar AJ Francis went to Kane’s house alongside The Undertaker to get his hands on Kane’s memorabilia from his wrestling days.

Throughout the search, the trio discovered various of Kane’s clothing, which had the ‘Kane Cape’, a wearable cape that the Big Red Machine wore only once in his career.

The Undertaker helped Kane to get the best deal

Kane put out one of the most unique creations he ever did as a wrestler, The Unabomb outfit. This was Kane’s gimmick when he was wrestling at the Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW) promotion back in the 90s.

The reason why this is unique is that Kane painted and prepared his props and dress. Back in the early days, when the promotion debuted a new character, it was the wrestler’s responsibility to make the props for his character, and Kane did a fantastic job.

The moment AJ saw this memorabilia, he made an offer to buy this from the WWE Hall of Famer. However, it was The Undertaker who did a tremendous job in negotiating and got the best deal for Mr. Mayor.

AJ immediately offered $2000 to which ‘Taker said, “I’m leaving,” indicating that $2000 is not a good price. The Deadman then presses AJ more and said that this memorabilia is part of history.

And by saying this ‘Taker reflected back to the time when he went to Smoky Mountain Wrestling in 1997 for a match against The Unabomber. It was then ‘Taker noticed the in-ring ability of a 7-foot athlete and eventually Glenn Jacobs would make his debut for WWE later that year as Kane.
