So I guess former WWE Champ Kane is my new Mayor.

Glenn Jacobs, better known by his WWE name “Kane,” was elected the mayor of Knox County, Tennessee Thursday, beating Democratic contender Linda Haney.

Link (Knoxville made it to the MSM)

The 51-year-old former wrestler, who was listed at 7’0” and 323 pounds at his peak as the Big Red Machine, considers himself a “Reagan Republican.” He listed seven goals on his campaign website: a commitment to keeping taxes low, a renewed focus on quality of education, continuing to attract new jobs to the area, improvement of roads and infrastructure, “full and absolute transparency,” safer communities and “a fresh outlook on limited government.”

I guess it was a close one.

Jacobs won his primary by just 23 votes

He has some big shoes to fill of previous Mayor Tim Burchett.

I hope he is in it for the right reasons.

I loved WWE video games for Xbox when I was younger. I would always beat up on Kane, Triple H and Vince McMahon

I’ll always remember him as the evil mute giant wrestler but I hope he does well for the people he represents.

We elected a reality star as president. A giant wrestler would be a step up.....big hands to embrace the constitution and the American people all at the same time.

Vaya con Dios....Glenn Jacobs!!

He was my favorite in his WWE days. I expect good news about him now.

Wonder what if a CNN reporter asks something stupid to him. Oh man !

Awesome!!
He seems like a bright guy and I think his heart is in the right place.







Wrestling is a lot less fake than the real world...I hope he does well for his city.

If we went back to the old WWF,we would have a whole city.

A tax collector,a repo man,a garbage guy,a preacher,a flower shop,a jail guard,a dentist (Glenn Jacobs before the Kane gimmick),the town rich guy with his bodyguard,a hitman,an Olympian,and a commie from Iran with his Commie buddies from the USSR.

Don't know why some people are bagging on him just because of his previous profession. I'd like to think professional wrestler is actually a step up from the professional mental patients we customarily elect.
