Last year, Glenn “Kane” Jacobs hinted that he was considering running for Mayor of Knox County, TN. On Thursday, he took the next step in the process. WCYB-TV is reporting that he has filed paperwork on 3/1 with the Knox County Election Commission to appoint Brian Carl as his political treasurer.
Jacobs said that his main goal is to attract jobs and businesses to the area. The election is not until May 1, 2018, and if he does run and win then that would most likely put an end to his full-time WWE career.
He has been off WWE TV since late December because of nagging injuries and he has also been running Jacobs Insurance Associates. There’s no word on when he will be returning to WWE programming but I would not rule him out for the Andre The Giant battle royal at WrestleMania.
