Kane responded to Taker’s tweet and wrote, “Thank you, my brother! What a tremendous honor!”

WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon also congratulated Kane and mentioned the infamous Katie Vick storyline with her husband, Triple H.

“Congratulations to one of the most unique characters & individuals I have ever known, @KaneWWE. A man w/ unparalleled intellect, whose heart is as big as his body. Welcome to the #WWEHOF Class of 2021! #YouDeserveIt (Don’t worry, we all know you had nothing to do w Katie Vick! [flushed face emoji]),” Stephanie wrote.

The Bump host Kayla Braxton said this was one of her favorite moments on the show.

WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus praised Kane for delivering in WWE for years.

“I couldn’t be happier for Glenn! He has been a constant in WWE performing at the highest level, entertaining fans and delivering for years … so happy to see him get the nod this year! Congrats my friend! @GlennJacobsTN #WWEHOF,” Trish wrote.
