WWE wrestler Kane pursuing mayoral run in Tennessee
Wrestler Kane, a 23-time WWE/WWF champion, is looking at a new career in politics.
Kane, whose real name is Glenn Jacobs, has formally filed paperwork appointing a political treasurer in order to run for mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, according to WCYB.
Jacobs runs an insurance company in addition to his WWE duties, and he identifies as a Republican. This is only the first step toward a run, and the election itself would not be until May 1, 2018.
“Knox County is a great place and we’re so happy and feel so blessed to live here,” Jacobs said. “I want to do my part going forward.”
Kane has been mulling this for over a year and it seems he’s decided to go through with it, though he still has a long way to go.
