Report: Kane to be at WWE Royal Rumble


PW Insider's Mike Johnson reported Monday that former WWE Champion Kane is scheduled to appear at Sunday's Royal Rumble at Minute Maid Park in Houston, TX.

He made an appearance on last Friday's SmackDown, cutting a promo about how the Rumble is his favorite pay-per-view and referencing all the eliminations he has had in the past. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt then got into it with him before Daniel Bryan attacked Wyatt and ran him off. 

Johnson did not specify whether Kane is scheduled to be in the Rumble match or a possible involvement in the Wyatt-Bryan strap match. Kane hasn't been in a Rumble match since 2016 when he entered seventh and was eliminated by Braun Strowman.

As of this writing, 19 of the 30 participants have been announced with several more expected on this week's WWE TV shows.

The 52-year-old (real name Glenn Jacobs) is the current mayor of Knox County, TN, and has only done sporadic appearances for WWE in recent years.
