** The infamous Katie Vick angle also had its roots in this, with Triple H claiming that Kane snapped into a murderous rage when Katie rejected him.

'''Glenn Thomas Jacobs''', born April 26, 1967, is a Spanish-born American {{professional wrestl|ing}}er trained by Ray Candy who is best known for a stint in Wrestling/{{WWE}} under the name '''Kane'''. He is one of WWE's longest-tenured superstars, with the gimmick having debuted in 1997 (and having worked for WWE a number of times prior to the Kane gimmick); in {{Kayfabe}}, Kane is the half-brother of Wrestling/TheUndertaker, with Kane's father being Undertaker's former manager Wrestling/PaulBearer (the "Brothers of Destruction" shared the same mother). He was originally thought to be dead, due to a fire started by the Undertaker that also claimed the lives of his parents, before Paul Bearer brought him back. Since their initial feud, Kane and Undertaker have both teamed up and feuded again several times.

** Also to the film ''Halloween''. As stated above: an angry, less-than-talkative masked giant who kicks whatever ass is in front of him and is known to sit straight up when he is down and out, but with the added touch of being an unstoppable supernatural force that really wants to destroy his sibling. This was taken a step further in an article for RAW Magazine that talked about Kane before his debut that used an '''actual''' picture of Michael Myers from the movies.

* NeverLiveItDown: In kayfabe. During his time as "Corporate Kane," many a superstar made it a point to remind Kane that he was a monster before he traded his mask for a suit.

* OldShame: For Jacobs, not the Kane character, the Christmas Creature gimmick he had. He so despises it he's occasionally asked wrestling websites to take down pictures of the Creature.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Was randomly turned heel on the Undertaker before ''Wrestling/{{SummerSlam}} 2000'' because Taker's original opponent, The Big Show, had been shipped off to WWE's developmental league Ohio Valley Wrestling in an attempt to get him to lose some weight. Although if you need someone to go heel on the Undertaker on a moment's notice without a stated reason...
** The primary reason he was originally unmasked is because Glenn Jacobs was having increasing difficulty wrestling with the mask on.



** [[OldShame Katie]] [[NeverLiveItDown Vick]]. It's been a decade and people ''still'' bring it up from time to time.

** Although, not all was as it seemed�
** DyeingForYourArt: Went dark as the Fake Diesel and never went back.

** To illustrate this, Kane holds the dubious distinction of having "won" the ''WrestlingObserver'' "Worst Feud of the Year" award more than anyone else, at seven times[[note]](In '02 {for the Katie Vick story}, '03, '04 {for the raping Lita story}, '07, '08, '10, and '12.)[[/note]]. To put that in perspective, the next most wins on that list is Hulk Hogan, with ''three''

* LongRunner: He's been in the WWE for just shy of twenty years and is currently the oldest wrestler on the active roster. He holds the record for most televised matches of ''any'' wrestler in the WWE, by a significant margin.[[note]](As of this entry, 9/22/14, Kane has 928 televised matches under his belt. The next closest is Big Show, with 766.)[[/note]]

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: {{Kayfabe}}-wise, Kane sent Matt Hardy to the hospital and terrorized Lita in a forced marriage, eventually leading her into the arms of Edge. Having lost his girlfriend through no fault of his own, Matt kinda lost his shit and more importantly lost any solid job security he had within WWE. After leaving the company and going through sordid times in and out of TNA along with his brother, finding love for real in Reby Sky and having a son with her, winning and losing world championship gold and falling out with Jeff over his methods, he eventually discovered his BROKEN brilliance. Had Kane not forced his way between Matt and Lita, Edge wouldn't have had his opening, and the path to becoming wrestling's most popular madman in 2016 would've never opened for Matt.

* LightningBruiser: Especially when you compare to other [[TheGiant giants]], Kane has a top rope move, has done an enzuigiri, and has an awesome ring exit where he uses the ropes to flip himself over, pretty impressive for such a big guy, he's even added a low angle dropkick, to his repertoire. Keep in mind all of that is in his arsenal at age 46, being in terrific shape for a wrestler that size and that age (compared to The Undertaker, who at that point couldn't even work a half-time schedule, while Kane still works a full year-round load).

* HiddenDepths: Both in and out of character. As Kane, there's absolutely no way anyone would have guessed that the silent, masked giant who debuted at 1997's Bad Blood would go on to become one of WWE's best mic workers, and then eventually transform into an articulate, suit-wearing, Director of Operations underneath Triple H and Stephanie [=McMahon=]. Out of character, it's downplayed-- no one has ever accused Glenn Jacobs of being a dummy, but he not only has a degree in English literature from before his pro wrestling career, but has gone on to become active in politics, was the last wrestler standing during a WWE-themed episode of The Weakest Link, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking makes a damn good]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgaxBTLR7j4 weatherman]].
