Jacobs began his professional wrestling career on the independent circuit in 1992. He wrestled in promotions such as Smoky Mountain Wrestling and the United States Wrestling Association before joining the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) in 1995.

Jacobs played various characters until 1997, when he was repackaged as Kane, the masked half-brother of The Undertaker, whom Jacobs would alternatively feud or team with 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 Stone Cold Steve Austin – described as the "poster boy" of that era – for the WWF Championship in his first pay-per-view main event at King of the Ring 1998. He has continued to headline WWE pay-per-view cards through the mid 2010s.

Kane has won 18 total championships during his WWF/E career, including being a three-time world champion (having held the WWF Championship, ECW Championship, and World Heavyweight Championship once each), and is also a 12-time tag team champion, having held the WWF/World Tag Team Championship, WCW Tag Team Championship, and WWE Tag Team Championships with various partners. He is a 2010 Money in the Bank winner.
