Villain Overview
What you see before you is my true self, my essence.
~ Kane

Kane was a villain from WWE who was portrayed as the half-brother of The Undertaker, yet unlike The Undertaker (who would often switch sides) Kane tended to remain a villain (or "heel" as they are called in the profession): originally Kane wore a mask to conceal his identity and was a savage brute of an almost demonic nature - as could be seen when his theme song played, the area would be bathed in red light and the stage would ignite into flame (via special pyrotechnic effects).

He is portrayed by Glenn Thomas Jacobs.


As the series progressed Kane became unmasked and although still a brutal fighter no longer concealed his identity - Kane's favored finishing move is the Chokeslam and also rarely talks, tending to be a slow-moving opponent: in the early days Kane was seen as almost impervious to pain (much like The Undertaker) but in later times his invulnerability was weakened somewhat, though he is still a formidable foe both in and out of the ring.

Powers and Abilities

  • Immortality: Kane possesses the ability to live indefinitely, he appears young in his 50's.

Despite these lethal incidents, Kane has returned the following week to wreak havoc.
