10 Weird & Random Facts About WWE & it’s Wrestlers
10. Kane (Glenn Jacobs) Was ‘Diesel’ Before He Was Kane
The man we know as #Kane had humble WWF beginnings. His first WWF in ring fight, his name was ‘Mike Unabomb’ it was a short lived name.
SO, when #ScottHall (Razor Ramon) and Kevin Nash (Diesel) left the WWF/WWE for WCW in the mid 1990’s McMahon was not a happy camper, so goes the rumors & official story…He offered Jacobs the ‘Fake Diesel’ character.
Vince thought that Diesel & Razor were only characters, so, other people can play the same character – How many James Bonds have there been?
BUT, this was also a mixture or revenge on McMahon’s part as he wanted to show Nash & Hall he didn’t need them to have those characters. The reception went HORRIBLY wrong and the ‘fakes’ were retired soon after.
(I wonder if they offered the job of ‘Fake Kane’ to Kevin Nash?)
