Not many people have been with World Wrestling Entertainment for as long as The Big Red Machine Kane.
The 49-year-old, real name Glenn Jacobs, made his WWE debut back at Bad Blood of 1997, confronting his on-screen brother The Undertaker.
Fast forward 19 years and Kane is still part of the company and is still enjoying regular TV time on SmackDown LIVE.

Of course, his gimmick isn't as powerful as it once was, nor is his wrestling ability, but just the sight of Kane and the whole aura of his character can still get some fans excited.
Kane is currently involved in a feud with Randy Orton and The Wyatt Family, but given the fact he's close to turning 50, his time in the squared circle could be coming to an end.
The Demon Monster has been briefly fading in and out of backstage roles with the company, which included an on-screen storyline involving 'Corporate Kane'.
However, that gimmick could soon become a reality as Kane could be closing in on retirement from professional wrestling.
Kane recently did an interview with topropepress.com, and he was asked about his future with the company and how long it is until he retires.
The wrestler admitted that there are three decisive factors behind him still going. The fact he loves what he does, the fact he can still perform at the top level, and the fact that he can give the fans their money's worth.
He said: “As long as I’m still performing at the top level, as long as I’m still having fun and as long as I feel that I’m giving the audience their money’s worth.
"That’s always been my benchmark for going on. It’s rewarding for me now with some of the other guys coming up and seeing what they are going to be capable of doing in the future. And seeing them mature and I’m happy to be part of this process. “
So it looks like we could be seeing Kane in a squared circle for a few more years at the very least.
