Given that he is now in his 50’s and the mayor-elect of Knox County, many would have been against the decision of Kane to participate in WWE Crown Jewel, especially as it was in the controversial nation of Saudi Arabia.

Following the death of American Journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a lot of Americans and Western corporations have began to boycott anything associated with Saudi Arabia.

WWE decided to go ahead with their tour to the Arab nation in spite of the criticism which they received.

Kane has since spoken out on why he decided to participate in the event and also added that his payment came in the form of a donation.

He said: “Because WWE donated $100,000 to the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation which was arranged long before the controversy. I made a commitment to our local first responders and I wasn’t willing to break that,”

Kane will receive the payment on Saturday during a WWE Live event in Knoxville, TN.
