WWE Wrestler, Kane Elected Mayor in Tennessee

WWE superstar, Glenn Jacobs well known as Kane has been elected to become the next mayor of Knox County in Tennessee.

The fact that the ex WWE star has been elected is one thing, the manner in which he won was another. His victory wasn’t all that close.

The 51-year-old unseated a Democrat to become Knox County’s 29th mayor, running as a libertarian and promising tax cuts along with improvements to education and infrastructure.

Running as a Republican, Jacobs defeated Democratic candidate Linda Haney 31,739 votes to 16,611.

Jacobs was born in Spain and grew up near St. Louis, Missouri, though his character Kane is infamously billed as hailing from either “Hell” or “parts unknown”.

As of the 2010 census, the Knox County population was 432,226.

Jacobs, whose wrestling persona nickname is “The Big Red Machine” (appropriately, given the GOP embraces the colour) said he was met with “pretty astounding laughter” among the political establishment when he first announced his plans to run for mayor but that this “made me want it even more.”

I am wondering how the news will affect Kane’s wrestling career. With President Trump having face criticism for the amount of time he spends on the golf course, Jacobs’ might want to limit the amount of chokeslams he delivers outside of mayoral duties.
