Glenn Thomas Jacobs is a 53-year-old professional wrestler, actor, author, businessman and politician. Jacobs is the mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
Jacobs made his wrestling debut in 1992 under the ring name Angus King for the promotion, CSWA Championship Wrestling. He wrestled for various promotions until 1995 when he began working dark matches with WWF as Mike Unabomb.
Jacobs made his television debut as Jerry Lawler’s private dentist named, Isaac Yankem, DDS. Jacobs made his WWF debut against Bret Hart in a losing effort. As Yankem, Jacobs feuded with Hart, The Undertaker and Ultimate Warrior until this gimmick was retired in September 1996 and he was reintroduced as Diesel.
In October 1997, Jacobs made his debut under the ring name, Kane, at Bad Blood: In Your House. He hit The Undertaker with the Tombstone Piledriver to cost him the Hell in a Cell match against Shawn Michaels. Kane feuded with The Undertaker during this year and won the WWE Championship from Stone Cold Steve Austin but lost it the following night on RAW.
Kane teamed and won the Tag Team Championships with multiple tag team partners throughout the years. In 2002 Kane took off the mask and had various story lines while winning multiple titles along the way. Kane put the mask back on in 2011 and had a lackluster feud with John Cena and then a feud with Randy Orton.
At SummerSlam 2012, Kane was defeated by Daniel Bryan but this match led to arguably Kane’s best run alongside Daniel Bryan in a tag team called, “Team Hell No.” Together, Kane and Daniel Bryan defeated Kofi Kingston and R-Truth to win the Tag Team Championships at Night of Champions.
Kane’s last real run with the company was from 2014 to 2015 as a member of The Authority alongside Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, and The Big Show. After the Authority split up, Kane made sporadic appearances with the WWE.
Kane had a match at the 2018 Royal Rumble for the Universal Championship facing Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman. At Extreme Rules in 2018, he teamed with Daniel Bryan to face Harper and Rowan for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships. On Monday Night RAW, under his real name, Glenn Jacobs, he won the 24/7 Championship.
Kane is currently on the SmackDown roster.
