Kane discusses Stephanie McMahon once explaining why WWE stars aren't called "wrestlers"



WWE Superstar and Knox County mayor-elect Glenn "Kane" Jacobs was recently interviewed by former WWE and IMPACT Wrestling star Tyrus for the FOX News Rundown podcast. During the podcast, Kane proclaimed he wanted to break the stereotype of professional wrestlers being labelled as "jocks."

It reminded him of something Stephanie McMahon once told him, as she explained why WWE stars aren't called "wrestlers":

"I remember Stephanie McMahon once saying there's a reason why we're not called wrestlers. We're called superstars, because there's so much more that we do," said Jacobs. "Even within our WWE careers, all the things that we're asked to do. Our promotion, dealing with the media, all of that stuff is more than just a guy or gal in the ring for 10 minutes a night and put on a show."

When asked if he'd compete in WWE while maintaining his tenure as mayor of Knox County, here's what he had to say:

"Basically, if I do anything, I'll just do some special events," said Kane. "But, WWE has been a part of my life for over 20 years, I am very proud of my career, I'm very proud of working for the company, I'm proud of people like you (Tyrus), I'm proud of so many of my friends and colleagues."
