The Big Red Machine is trading leg drops for legislation … because Kane officially announced today that he’ll be running for Mayor in Tennessee.

Glenn Jacobs — aka Kane — made his way to the podium for the announcement at Sweet Pea’s BBQ in South Knoxville as the song “Only in America” by Brooks and Dunn played over the PA.

Jacobs says in the video, “This is a great place to work, live and raise a family. I want to do my part to make sure it remains a great place and that our future is as bright as ever.” Adding, “So today … I ask for your prayers, I ask for your support and I ask for your vote to become Knox County’s next mayor.”

Yes, The Devil’s Favorite Demon asked people to pray for him.
