I must be honest. I thought he wouldn't last at all. He didn't appear to be a good wrestler or have good promo skills.

It's disturbing how much the wrong gimmick can prevent a wrestler becoming a success.

You pretty much said everything word from word that I was going to say.

I was like 5 years old...

Now that I'm older I think I've seen 1 match from Glen Jacobs that he didn't wrestle as Kane.

^ya, the only match i've seen as him not kane was on vintage collections.

Though its still funny how they called undertaker, kane the undertaker then suddenly stopped and used kane as takers brother, which makes me wonder if jacobs didn't end up being kane, would wwe have ever thought of having a takers brother storyline, if so then who might have been kane?


Though the 90s did prove that wrong gimmicks can ruin guys. Like how kane didn't work that great before he was kane, how rock wasn't really that popular when he was rocky miavia, hhh wasn't great when he was the french guy(or w/e it was that he was). Yet in todays wwe, if a gimmick doesn't work, you're fired.

You mean like how Kevin Nash was Oz and Vinnie Vegas before he became Diesel?
