Glenn Jacobs wrestles in the WWE under the name Kane. However, Kane was not the name that Jacobs first had when he entered the WWE way back in 1995. Jacobs debuted as Isaac Yankem, who was supposedly the personal dentist of Jerry “The King” Lawler. Lawler claimed that he brought his dentist into the WWE to get rid of Bret “The Hitman” Hart, and with his huge size, Yankem was the man to do it.
The storyline did not last long, and after some time, Jacobs was asked to help the WWE make fun of the fact that two of their most popular wrestlers had defected and gone to the WCW. Who were these super stars? Kevin Nash, who was also known as Diesel, and Scott Hall, who went by Razor Ramon. Jacobs was asked to impersonate Diesel, and with his size, he was a close imitation with the black leather pants, tank top, and dark wig.
In 1997, Jacobs was given yet another character to play, and this would be the one that he would stick to, excel in, and still uses to this day - the character of Kane. Over the past 20 years, Kane has had storylines that were more than a little embarrassing, and here is a list of those less-than-dignified moments.
10 The Time Chris Jericho Spilled Coffee On Him
9 The Time He Supposedly Had Sex With A Dead Body
8 The Time He Took Off His Mask
7 The Time Lita Miscarried Kane’s Baby
6 The Time Paul Bearer Was Revealed To Be Kane’s Father
5 The Time He Burned His Parents’ Graves
4 The Time Gene Snitsky Attacked Him With A Pipe
3 The Time He Battled His Doppelganger
2 The Time Kane Wanted John Cena to Turn Heel
1 The Time Edge Kidnapped Paul Bearer
Paul Bearer turned out to be Kane’s WWE father, so it's no wonder he was pissed when Edge ended up kidnapping the man that gave him life. Not only did Edge take Paul Bearer right under Kane's nose, but Edge also managed to drag his helpless victim to every WWE taping just to rub it in Kane’s face that he had his father. What was the most bizarre thing about the whole situation with Kane, Edge, and Paul Bearer, is the fact that it was terribly unrealistic. Edge basically snatched Paul Bearer on television, but was not charged with kidnapping, and Bearer was taken all over the country being taunted and tormented by his kidnapper. This has to be one of the most ridiculous storylines the WWE has ever put together.
