Jacobs has portrayed several characters throughout his career since his professional wrestling debut in 1992. He was originally known as Unibomb while wrestling in the United States Wrestling Association, Smoky Mountain Wrestling, where he was co-holder of the SMW Tag Team Championships with Al Snow, and a few early appearances with the WWF. He also competed in the Japanese shoot style promotion Pro Wrestling Fujiwara Gumi. Jacobs is believed to have debuted in the WWF as the masked Black Knight at the 1993 Survivor Series, though some fans believe that the Black Knight was actually Jeff Gaylord. He later appeared as the evil dentist of Jerry Lawler, Isaac Yankem, DDS, in 1995 and 1996 after Bret Hart damaged Lawler's teeth by forcing his foot into his mouth, and as Diesel in 1996 and 1997, replacing the original wrestler to have played the Diesel character, Kevin Nash.

In October 1997, Jacobs was repackaged as Kane, the on-screen half-brother of The Undertaker, with whom he feuded off and on for several years. The characters' histories are that as children, Undertaker "accidentally" burned down the funeral home in Death Valley where they lived, killing their parents, and hideously scarring Kane physically and mentally. Kane is portrayed to be psychologically unstable, supposedly being depressed, schizophrenic, extremely violent and quick to anger. Undertaker's manager, Paul Bearer (who was billed as Kane's father), hid Kane as he grew up and Kane was thought to be dead until he returned as a 7-foot, 326-pounds, one-eyed monster heel at Badd Blood in October 1997 and attacked Undertaker during his Hell in a Cell match with Shawn Michaels. His first actual match as Kane was against Ahmed Johnson on the November 3, 1997 episode of Monday Night RAW. He would later have many other heel and face turns through out the years.
