Former World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Champion
Also wrestled as Dr. Isaac Yankem DDS and the fake "Diesel" in the WWF, before becoming Kane.
Formerly owned a gym called Family Fitness in Sevierville, Tennessee, and has permanent residence in Knoxville, Tennessee.
His "brother" The Undertaker has been cited working out at his gym by many people. Sevierville is also the home of former Tag champ Mark Canterbury aka Henry Godwinn.
Has 2 children.
Had a March 2002 appearance on a special WWF edition of "The Weakest Link" in which he ended up as the strongest link by defeating wrestler, Bubba Ray Dudley, in the final round. His winnings were donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Had his head busted open during a RAW steel cage match with HHH. He became very dizzy but had to continue the match because "Kane is supposed to be invincible."
Showed more and more skin with each costume change even though his character was supposed to be burned.
Character, Kane, used to talk through an external voice box.
Has improved (dramatically) his Chokeslam so much over the years that it became his finisher.
Has such a hard time using the "Tombstone Piledriver" because of damage on his knees that he no longer uses it as his finisher.
Is not really related to his on-screen brother, The Undertaker, in real life.
Prints out his name as his autograph rather than writing in cursive.
Now wears an elbow pad on his left arm because of the damage it has taken over the years.
Was not (despite somewhat popular belief) the "other" Undertaker in the infamous "The Undertaker Vs. The Undertaker" angle. That Undertaker was actually Brian Harris aka ('Prime Time' Brian Lee).
Was forced to unmask on the June 23, 2003 episode of WWE RAW as part of a stipulation in his "mask vs. belt" match against World Heavyweight Champion Triple H (Paul Levesque), therefore exposing his "burnt" face to the world. His supposedly physical scars only turned out to be mental.
Buried his "brother," the Undertaker, at Survivor Series 2003.
Although he held the title for only 24 hours, the shortest WWF Title reign record belongs to André the Giant, who defeated Hulk Hogan for the belt on The Main Event NBC special, then tried selling it to Ted DiBiase seconds later. André was stripped of the Title by WWF President Jack Tunney, the transaction was declared void and the Title became vacant.
Competed at WrestleMania 2000 with a broken left hand.
His "inverted colors" outfit was inspired by the video game, WWF War Zone. The game featured an inverted outfit for his alter ego due to lack of variety in his costumes at the time.
As the character Unibomb, won USWA Tag Team Titles with Al Snow.
Wrestled in the USWA under the name Unibomb. This is where he met WWF wrestler/annoucer Jerry Lawler who would bring him to the WWF as Lawler's lunatic dentist, Issac Yankem DDS.
Has had feuds with The Undertaker for years under many different characters. Some matches, including his on-again, off-again feuds as Kane, The Undertaker's stepbrother, include a Survivor Series match where The Royals (Jerry Lawler, King Mabel, Hunter Hearst Helmsley and Isaac Yankem) took on The Darkside (The Undertaker, Savio Vega, Fatu and Henry O. Godwinn). As well as many cross over WWF/USWA matches between The Undertaker and Unibomb.
Attended Truman State University (formerly Northeast Missouri State University).
Two-time Intercontinental Champion.
Won the WCW Tag Team Championships with The Undertaker during the Invasion.
The extremely noticeable scars on the back of his head came from the infamous RAW steel cage match when his head got slammed by the cage door.
Kane became a 9 time World Tag Team Champion, this time with the Big Show, by defeating Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch on Nov. 1, 2005 at Taboo Tuesday.
With his on-screen brother's undefeated winning streak at WrestleMania, Kane is one of three opponents whom Undertaker has beaten more than once at the pay-per-view show, along with Triple H and Shawn Michaels. Kane was defeated at WrestleMania XIV and at WrestleMania XX, six years later.
At WrestleMania 22, he successfully defended the World Tag Team Championships with his tag team partner the Big Show, against Carlito and Chris Masters.
Is a former third grade teacher.
Kane is nine times World tag team champion.
His dark character stage name is loosely from "Batman" (a.k.a. The Dark Knight) creator Bob Kane.
While playing his character Kane, he found his mask limited his ability as a performer, as he had to emote solely through body language. Once he unmasked, he was able to emote more freely with facial expressions, as well.
He and Vince McMahon were the only WWE employees who were completely behind the idea of Kane removing his mask.
His stage name is partly taken from the Biblical character Cain. As the story goes, Cain killed his brother Abel, committing the first ever murder. Coincidentally, his character's stepbrother was called Kane the Undertaker when he debuted in the WWF.
For a short period he wrestled in WCW as Bruiser Mastino. He once competed against Sting on WCW Saturday Night.
As Doomsday he won the United States Wrestling Association Heavyweight title in 1997.

At WrestleMania X-Seven he won the Hardcore title in a Triple Threat match including Raven and Big Show.

Kane still continues to be without the mask that he was known for wearing throughout his career. Since his unmasking, he has attacked numerous people for no reason (Rob Van Dam, Jim Ross, Linda McMahon) and because of this, he has been placed under house arrest. However, he can still report to RAW every week to compete, but he has been placed in shackles and escorted down to the ring by security personnel. Since SummerSlam, he tried to finally hunt down Shane McMahon for the threats Shane imposed to him. Kane set Shane up for an unbelievably shocking "inferno dumpster deathtrap" but Shane kicked him into the dumpster and we are still wondering how Kane faired from that supposed scorching.

In an ironic turn of fate, Kane was put on the shelf at Taboo Tuesday by Gene Snitsky by the same method he used to eliminate Shawn Michaels four months prior (folding a steel chair over his throat and jumping on it).
