Kane was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2021
The Big Red Machine has been a part of WWE since 1995. He was previously portrayed as Fake Diesel and an evil dentist named Isaac Yankem DDS. He captured his first and only WWE Championship at the King of the Ring premium live event in 1998 by defeating Stone Cold Steve Austin in a First Blood Match.
He dropped it back to The Texas Rattlesnake on Monday Night RAW the following night. Kane has shared the ring with notable stars such as The Undertaker, John Cena, The Rock, Triple H, and Randy Orton. He’s also a one-time World Heavyweight Champion and ECW Champion.
