Do you remember when Kane was an evil dentist?

Back in 1995, Jerry Lawler reincarnated his feud with Bret Hart. After losing a Kiss my Foot match at KOTR 1995, Lawler wanted revenge. So he took it upon himself to recruit his personal dentist, Isaac Yankem. After that Bret and Yankem engaged in a short lived feud that spawned matches such as one from SummerSlam 1995 and a cage match on an episode of Raw that same year.

As I mentioned before, Isaac Yankem was portrayed by Glenn Jacobs AKA The Fake Diesel AKA Kane. Who would ever imagined that this guy would have a lengthy career as a sadistic monster? What a career path for Glenn Jacobs, huh? To go from an evil dentist with bad teeth, to a Kevin Nash impersonater, to a sadistic non-talking unstoppable monster, to a sadistic talking somewhat tolerable monster.

Have you ever thought of what would happen of Isaac Yankem lasted for 14 years instead of Kane? All of his teeth probably would have fallen out by that time, but I think that’s beside the point.

Anyway for those of you that don’t remember or never heard of him here’s a look:
