Knox County mayor Glenn Jacobs will be making some appearances for WWE in the fall, but he won’t be leaving his constituents high and dry … he’ll be making them a large sum of money.
According to WBIR, Jacobs aka Kane requested the donation in appreciation for making upcoming WWE appearances and the money will go to the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation.
This means the money will benefit employees of the Knoxville Fire Department, Knoxville Police Department, Knox County Sheriff’s Office and University of Tennessee Police Department.
“[This] $100,000 is a significant contribution especially for the family of a fallen police officer or a firefighter that could help them through that transition of losing a loved one,” said Jacobs.
Vince McMahon also commented on the donation, saying: “I appreciate his gesture to the heroes who selflessly put themselves in harm’s way and look forward to his continued progress in his mission.”
As we previously reported, Kane told Pro Wrestling Sheet before being elected that he was open to stepping into the ring while serving as mayor and this week on Raw it was announced that he’d appear in the corner of Undertaker at Super Show-Down in Australia next month.
Plus, there’s heavy speculation that The Brothers of Destruction will wrestle at Crown Jewel.
