Kane suffered an injury on screen last week, but he may have some real-life problems too as he has been pulled from a month's worth of live events.
At the age of 50, most fans likely believed that Kane's best days were behind him. While that is definitely the case, The Big Red Machine has still managed to return full time recently and even competed for the Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble. Most of his time back between the ropes though has revolved around a rivalry with Braun Strowman.
Kane and Strowman have been destroying each other, and everything around them in the meantime, for the past few months but last week it seems as if The Monster Among Men got the last laugh. He and Kane went one on one in a Last Man Standing match and Strowman kicked things into another gear. So much so that his veteran opponent was carted out of the arena on a stretcher.
That was all within the realms of an angle of course, however, it would seem that Kane may be suffering from some real-life injuries and last week was just a way to write him off television. While what is up with Kane right now is unclear, what is clear is that he has been removed from all of WWE's live events right up until the end of February as reported by Sportskeeda.
As of right now, Kane is scheduled to take on Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at a live event on March 3, 2018, so clearly whatever issues he is working through right now WWE expect him to be fit and ready to go in a month's time. That timeline also likely means that there are WrestleMania plans in place for Kane, although they may be on hold for the time being to see if he does heal up in time.
Kane has been a WWE Superstar for other 20 years now and as already mentioned above is in his fifties. That, plus the fact he could become the mayor of Knox County, Tennessee later this year, means this run he is currently on could be his last. In fact, if whatever has caused him to be pulled from WWE's upcoming live events is serious enough maybe Kane's wrestling days are already over.
