Being a masked wrestler takes away a bit of the character work that goes into making a WWE superstar recognizable. However, Kane’s mask and his gargantuan size made him hard to miss. Aside from luchadors like Rey Mysterio and Jushin Thunder Liger, Kane remains the most popular masked wrestler.

A terrifying part of his presentation as a demon was a creepy head tilt. On the A&E exclusive with AJ Francis, called WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures, Kane revealed a fascinating detail about the signature head tilt and its inspiration.

“Do you know where I got like, the head tilt from? My dog. St. Bernard named Annie.” It is startling that a dog inspired one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, but such is the life of a WWE superstar.

“I just did that once, and it was the creepiest thing you’d ever seen,” said Kane. The current mayor of Knox County entered the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021, where he delivered a rousing speech inside the Thunderdome.

In the sneak peek video, Undertaker also commented on Kane’s character. “Everybody focuses on your face and when you wear a mask, you lose all that ability to tell that story, and that’s why the head tilt was so good.”
