On a recent episode of his weekly ‘The Kurt Angle Show’ podcast, our Olympic Hero claimed that WWE took advantage of Kane being someone who did whatever they told him.

Here’s what Kurt Angle had to say:

“You know what? I didn’t hang out with Glenn (Jacobs) that often. He was a really nice guy. Nobody could say a bad thing about him.

He was like the perfect employee; you know, he never got in trouble. Yeah. He did everything he was told to do. He showed up. He worked his a$$ off.

I think he was a little too nice because the company kind of took advantage of him. He did a lot more, had a lot more losses than wins, and was a dominant character.

So, you know, but he was one of those guys that was in the main event that really made other wrestlers because when you’re going up through the ranks, you had to go through Kane.

And when you beat Kane, that’s a big plus on, you know, on your shoulder. You can continue knowing that you’re a bigger star after you defeat Kane.

So he was one of the obstacles you had to go through to get to the main event.”

Glenn Jacobs first joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1995 as Isaac Yankem DDS, became (Fake) Diesel in 1996 and by 1997 he debuted as The Undertaker’s long lost (kayfabe) brother Kane.

He has been with the WWF/WWE ever since, but has turned into a part-timer in recent years to focus on politics.

Jacobs currently works as the Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
