In a 2015 interview, veteran wrestler Ric Flair described Kane as "the best in the world" In a recent interview with TV Insider, he reflected on going from wrestler to elected official: “It came full circle.

If you told me in 1995 that I’d be in an office overlooking the Knoxville Civic Coliseum, I’d look at you like you were nuts…I hope the book is an entertaining read for people because you have the crossover between my wrestling career and the political stuff.

I was around and very much part of the ‘Attitude Era,’ so a lot of what people talk about I saw up close and part of it. That part is a great story I can tell. We look at the internet and social media and all the different platforms we are competing against.

One of the things that frustrated me is that we move so quickly sometimes it felt like you weren’t getting the depth of the storyline because you just had to put stuff out and things would get lost."
