And it sounds like the two legends may not have to wait long to receive that "call to the hall." According to WWE insider Brad Shepard, the World's Largest Athlete and the Big Red Machine are being considered for the 2020 Hall of Fame class.
According to a source in #WWE, Kane and Big Show are early names being internally considered for the #WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020. Keep in mind, this is only a consideration and the final list isn’t complete until mere months before WrestleMania.— Brad Shepard (@TheBradShepard) July 19, 2019
Glenn Jacobs (Kane's real name) is now mayor of Knox County, Tennessee. He has only wrestled sporadically over the last five years, and his last match was at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in November. There, Kane and Undertaker reformed the Brothers of Destruction duo, losing to D-Generation X in a tag team match.
Like Kane, Big Show has only wrestled occasionally over the past several years. He was used to help put Braun Strowman over as the next great "big man" in WWE - losing a Steel Cage match to the Monster Among Men on the Sept. 4, 2011 episode of Raw. Big Show then took time off so he could undergo hip surgery, and he wouldn't return to the ring until Oct. 2018. He last competed on the Nov. 20 episode of SmackDown, teaming up with The Bar in a losing effort to New Day.
Both Kane and Big Show were two of the most influential superstars of the Attitude Era, and they quickly grew into main eventers after joining WWE over 20 years ago. Big Show became the 12th Grand Slam Champion; he has two WWE Championships and a pair of World Heavyweight titles on his resume.
As for Kane, he was a central part of the Attitude Era thanks to his historic rivalry with The Undertaker. He became the third Grand Slam Champion in history, and he holds the record for most all-time Royal Rumble eliminations with 44.
What This Means
There's a zero percent chance that neither guys gets inducted into the Hall of Fame. Both Kane and Big Show have been true professionals during their respective tenures in WWE, with each lasting over two decades. The two superstars worked together as a duo numerous times, winning both the WWE and the World Tag Team Championships. It would only be fitting if they got inducted into the Hall of Fame together, given all the work they accomplished together over these past 20 years.
