InfoGlenn Thomas Jacobs is an American professional wrestler, businessman, actor, and politician. A Republican, he is the Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.

In professional wrestling, Jacobs is signed to WWE on the SmackDown brand, where he is known by his ring name Kane. Jacobs began his professional wrestling career on the independent circuit in 1992. He wrestled in promotions such as Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW) and the United States Wrestling Association (USWA) before joining the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) in 1995. Jacobs played various characters until 1997, when he was repackaged as Kane, the mentally disturbed, pyromaniacal younger half-brother of The Undertaker, with whom Jacobs would alternatively feud or team as The Brothers of Destruction.

Following his debut, Kane remained a pivotal component of the company's "Attitude Era" of the late 1990s and early 2000s, defeating the era's "poster boy" Stone Cold Steve Austin for the WWF Championship in his first pay-per-view (PPV) main event at King of the Ring in June 1998. He continued to compete in world championship PPV matches for the next 20 years, and stands as the most prolific PPV performer in WWF/WWE history.

Within WWE, Kane is a three-time world champion (having held the WWF Championship, ECW Championship and World Heavyweight Championship once each) and a 12-time world tag team champion, having held the WWF/WWE/World Tag Team Championship, WCW Tag Team Championship and WWE Tag Team Championships with various partners. He is also a two-time Intercontinental Champion and a 2010 Money in the Bank winner as well as the third man to win WWE's Grand Slam. Kane holds the record for cumulative Royal Rumble match eliminations at 44.

Outside of professional wrestling, Jacobs has made numerous guest appearances in film and on television, including the lead role in the 2006 WWE Studios production See No Evil and its 2014 sequel. Jacobs is also a longtime supporter of libertarian political causes. On May 1, 2018, Jacobs won the Republican primary election for the mayoral seat of Knox County, Tennessee, and on August 2, went on to win the general election.
