The Big Red Machine has built up a legendary pro wrestling career over the last 25 years, but now Kane wants to try his hand at an even more dangerous profession … POLITICS!
Kane, real name Glenn Jacobs, has filed paperwork with the Knox County (Tennessee) Election Commission to appoint a political treasurer . Kane lives in that county with his wife Crystal and told Knoxville news station WBIR in 2016 that he plans to run for mayor.
The wrestler said in the interview “Knox County is a great place and we’re so happy and feel so blessed to live here. I want to do my part going forward.”
Jacobs identifies as a Republican and must file a nomination petition by November in order to run in the next mayoral election on May 1, 2018.
