The truth about Kane’s absence from WWE certainly isn’t as exciting and controversial as other WWE absentees, with Glen Jacobs being one of WWE’s most clean cut and well-liked individuals. Jacobs has simply been granted time off. The time off was at his own request.He requested the time off to run for the Knox County mayoral seat in 2018 and to work on his insurance agency business, The Jacobs Agency. Jacobs set up and runs the business with his Wife. They offer auto, home, motorcycle, RV, boat, life and commercial insurance, as well as retirement planning.
Kane’s current deal, which is $905,000 per year downside with first class travel and accommodation, is set to expire at some point next year. With his age and outside interests, it’s quite likely that his current deal may be his last and his retirement and Hall of Fame induction won’t be too far off.
