Cape Town wrestling fans are in for a treat of blood, sweat and hot bods when the World Wrestling Entertainment comes to town.

WWE superstars will be in action at the Grand Arena this Wednesday and Thursday night.

In an interview with the Daily Voice, WWE stars Kane and Christian promised audiences nothing less than a spectacular show.

Born Glen Thomas Jacobs, Kane says he’s excited about coming back to South Africa.

“I’m very excited about returning to Cape Town. From what I can remember, it is a beautiful city,” he explains.

Kane began his career in 1992, before joining WWE years later.

“I saw it and fell in love with it. I started wrestling at college because I thought it was fun, it looked fun and I knew that’s what I wanted to do,” he says.

“It is a very dangerous sport and shouldn’t be tried at home, in your backyard or at school; however, our fans sometimes tend to forget that.

“We are trained professionals but we’re also entertainers and although some of what we do is staged, we also get hurt really badly.


“I’ve had some serious injuries that had me out of action but luckily nothing that threatened my career.”

Kane assures his supporters that he will still be around for a long time to come.

“I will only stop when the fun stops,” he says.

Meanwhile, for fellow WWE pro wrestler, William Jason Reso, commonly known as Christian, this is his first time in the country.

Christian, who began his wrestling career in college, cleared up the myth about wrestling being all fake.

“It’s not the easiest job and it takes lots of training and practice.

There are some things you just can’t fake on the show – if it looks like it hurt there’s a good chance it did,” he says.

Christian proudly vows: “Fans can expect the same world-class performance they see on TV and nothing short of spectacular.” - Daily Voice
