“Bah Gawd!” Kane will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on April 6, 2021.
The Undertaker made the announcement on this week’s episode of The Bump that the Big Red Machine (real name Glenn Jacobs) will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the Class of 2021.
“There’s no Hall of Fame without Kane, I can promise you that,” The Undertaker said.
“This is the greatest honor of my entire pro wrestling career,” Jacobs says. “There have been so many people that helped me get here, and I can’t wait to say thanks to each of them. It’s a tremendous honor, one that I’m still trying to process.”
“If you told me we’d be having this Hall of Fame discussion when I was Isaac Yankem, I never would have believed you,” Jacobs says.
Kane is a Grand Slam Champion, a three-time world champion a 12-time tag team champion, and is considered one of the best big men in WWE history. Now the mayor of Knox County, Tenn., the 6′ 8″ Jacobs career forever changed when he donned the Kane mask, debuting at the Badd Blood pay-per-view in October 1997.
“The secret to longevity in WWE is being able to reinvent yourself,” Jacobs says. “I took so much pride in this profession.”
