WWE Legend Kane Is Running For Mayor

And we back this decision completely.

WWE legend Kane is running for major. Not in the ring, not backstage, but in real life. The man who interrupted the sanctity of Edge and Lita's marriage before tombstoning a priest is running for mayor of his adopted home Knox County, Tennessee.

Setting aside his tights and mask for the charms of Libertarian views and tailored suits, Glenn Jacobs has released a video which invites would-be Republican voters to get on his good side.

He said: "I've lived in East Tennessee for over 20 years at this point. It's just a great place. I love it here. My family loves it here, and I just want to have as much positive impact on things as I possibly can."

Jacobs makes his bid loud and clear, saying: "As Knox County mayor, I promise to keep taxes low and make Knox County a place everyone can be proud of. I see my role as that of a facilitator among the different communities in our area. And also I think that Mayor Burchett has done a very good job with transparency in government and I would continue along those lines."

He's said he'd like to work towards making Knox County a "world class workforce" which would hopefully attract new businesses, as well as implementing talkback sessions to get a sense of the constituents' issues.

Jacobs first rose to prominence as Kane, the mute brother of the Undertaker back in 1995.

He has won a total of 23 championships during his career with the WWE, including three world championships (WWF World Heavyweight Championship, ECW Championsihp and WWE World Heavyweight Championship).

He is also a 12-time world tag team champion, two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion and a 2010 Money in the Bank winner.

Jacobs also holds the all-time record of eliminations at the Royal Rumble with a whopping 44 eliminations.

What other Knox County candidates have that to boast of? Fuck all. Glenn Jacobs for Knox County major 2018.
