That's just it though he doesn't do anything. People criticise back stage politics but sometimes its a good thing cus it stops Vince from doing shit. I look at Kane and I just feel like Glenn Jacobs has no ambition. He could have been the star of the ruthless aggression era. Instead he turned into a generic monster heel like Snitsky. Every Raw feels like deja vu with his move set. If I were Kane I would have said in 05 to Vince 'this non-masked thing aint working, I should go back to being the Big Red Machine'. Instead he just became complacent and happy to job to Mysterio and Khali. There's just no ambition to Jacobs.
Perhaps you're right. I can understand why someone would think he isn't ambitious when it comes to his personal position within the company. But in terms of effort I'd have to disagree with you. As others have said and as much as I'd like to say otherwise: everyone has a '5 moves of doom' set up to their finisher.
So no, he hasn't done much for himself but he's done plenty for other superstars in terms of putting them over/helping them out. His tag-team history speaks for itself imo.
I for one think it's quite refreshing not to have another veteran '97 HBK or Hogan in the back only thinking about himself.
Kane's been around for 16 years, and still does that top rope clothesline thing lol... what other big guy does something like that? He's known to be one of the strongest guys backstage, he doesn't politic, he puts people over, he works well in serious feuds but as we see, can do the comedic stuff too. If the guy was booked better he'd pretty much the same status the Undertaker does.

Because Kane does it in short or formulaic TV or tag team matches while Cena does it even in 17 minutes PPV matches.
Hit the nail on the head. Give Kane 17 minutes and he does wonders. Fact. Cant wait for Bryan vs Kane 2.
