WWE Superstar Kane (Glenn Jacobs) has officially announced that he will be running for Knox County mayor in Knoxville, TN. This announcement was expected after he filed paperwork back in February to name a treasurer.
“Being someone who hasn’t been in local government before,” Jacobs said in a February interview with WBIR in Knoxville, “we’re a new set of eyes on the new problems and challenges that we’ll have going forward. I think that we’re really in a transitional period as a county.”
Jacobs is known for his Libertarian views but will be on the ballot as a Republican. So far, there is no word on what his future holds for WWE. In recent interviews, he has said that his return to WWE is to be determined. It looks like his full-time career with the company might be over.
