"I'm a monster. I wear a mask. My only source of pleasure is eviscerating people... and even I find you mentally unstable."Glenn Thomas Jacobs, born April 26, 1967, is an Spanish-born American professional wrestler currently working for 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 The Undertaker, with Kane's father being Undertaker's former manager Paul Bearer (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. Kane originally wrestled in a mask, but removed it in 2003 (revealing his supposed physical scars from the fire were more like mental ones). In late 2011, he started wearing a mask again, in 2013 he removed it and switched to a Man of Wealth and Taste attire as he "sold out" to Triple H & Stephanie McMahon, briefly re-donning the mask from April-August 2014. He is a former WWE Champion, a former 2x WWE Intercontinental Champion, a 9x WWE World Tag Team Champion, a former WWE Hardcore Champion, a former WCW World Tag Team Championnote , a former WWE ECW Heavyweight Champion, a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion and a 2x WWE Tag Team Champion, once with The Big Show and once with Daniel Bryan as Team Hell No.For a detailed look at Kane's in-ring career, you can check out his Wikipedia page. Kane's kayfabe history is a little more... convoluted... so in lieu of a Wikipedia article, instead you can check out this special two part column on 411mania that does its best to cover Kane's kayfabe history (it even works Glenn Jacobs' gimmicks prior to Kane into the kayfabe) up to 2013.
