Kane, better known as Glenn Jacobs, recently spoke with FOX News to promote his new “Mayor Kane: My Life in Wrestling and in Politics” autobiography.
The former WWE Champion became the mayor of Knox County in 2018 in Knoxville, Tennessee. He also has a wrestling school with Dr. Tom Prichard that is called Jacobs-Prichard Wrestling Academy in the city.
In this interview, he discussed whether or not he would consider running for Governor of Tennessee, or even President of the United States. Here is what he had to say:
“I can assure you will not see me run for president because, again, I think a lot can be accomplished at the state and local levels,” he said. “And I think that we often discount the importance of state and local politics because we concentrate so much on federal politics. As for higher office. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t have any sort of plan or anything like that. I just want to do the best I can in the position that I’m in. You know, when the time comes and maybe look at something else, maybe I want to do something else with my life. Right now, just the most important thing is I want to try to be and I am being the best mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, that I can possibly be.”
