I really doubt that this is true. Vince would be pretty stupid to let him go, considering the fact that Glen's got some years left, and RAW would have a gaping hole without him. Besides, how could Matt Hocking live without a little more Kane?
(Being a Kane fan, the 2001 RR was really one of my favorite matches. They did a wonderful job of building him up throughout the match, and even though his loss to Austin was inevitable, it was thrilling to see him being booked as a true monster, not just a ME jobber.)

I liked masked Kane, I always thought it was good to have some gimmicked/cartoonish wresters on the roster and the red masked Kane fit that... But unmasked Kane allowed us to see he was one of the best exaggerated facial expression wrestlers I've seen . For me I say the unmasking was a good thing.
If Kane leaves soon, he truly fears Snitsky! Or maybe he doesn't want to be married to Lita anymore... Does this mean Lita has to leave too! Being the are married and the whole joint property they have going for them. Most important, what will happen to Eye Scream Man!

Ha, the ever-closing/re-opening thread. Anyway...from TEH TORTCH:
PWTorch.com has been told by mulitple sources that there is truth to HTM's report about Kane having contract renegotiation issues with WWE. Two different wrestler says that Kane is definitely having problems with his renegotiations with WWE. Also, separate sources say that front office staffers were talking about it all day yesterday, and not due to HTM's report but rather internal knowledge of the situation. Apparently the blow-up occurred on Sunday and Kane's future with WWE is in doubt at this point, although there remains a solid chance the situation will be worked out. However, his tenuous status may explain why he was beaten down by Gene Snitsky on Raw. Confusing the situation is that Kane is scheduled to take part in a WWE-produced movie. There is no word on whether that is a separate deal or whether that will be affected by the contract situation.
I hope that regardless of what happens with his wrestling contract, that FOR THE GOOD OF CINEMA they still make "Eye Scream Man." I hope that's not just one of those "in production" titles some movies get before they are named for real.

If he is having contract problems it sure is a great message to send to the rest of the guys. Work retarded angle after retarded angle, shave your head and sell for the boss's son, but don't expect us to pay you the same when it's contract time. If you aren't going to take care of a company man like that who is going to trust you down the road?

After Survivor Series '97 i don't think that anyone working for Vince would expect loyalty anyway. But you're right Stewart, Jacobs has been very over for seven years, and over that time has been squashed by Taker countless times (as have 95% of the roster), and been put in some of the worst angles of all-time, one of which still goes on today. Over this time, after being SO unappreciated, I don't ever recall him complaining to the company. He truly seems to be a class act, and if he's finally fed up with being undervalued, I can't blame him.

Someone like Shannon Moore is underappriciated, not someone like Kane who has been getting pushed for six years. Yes, he has been in stupid angles. And he got paid for it. Probably he got paid very well since he was a regular character during the hot period. If they offered him a new contract that is not what he thinks he deserves, then good for him for saying so. But he is not owed a stupid angle bonus. Hopefully Kane and Vince can find a deal that works for them both.
