WWE's Kane through the years

Kane will forever be remembered for surviving a woeful initial WWE gimmick -- sadistic dentist Dr. Isaac Yankem -- to find stardom as The Undertaker's long-lost brother.

The pair feuded at first -- even engaging in an "Inferno Match" to see who could set the other on fire first. But they've also wreaked havoc together as the Brothers of Destruction and will team to face the Wyatt Family at Survivor Series.

Kane has rubbed shoulders -- and rocked craniums -- with the likes of Pete Rose, beating him down multiple times. The spots earned Rose a spot in the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame, and it's all but certain Kane will sometime earn a place in the main hall.
