WWE Wrestler Kane Wins Mayoral Election in Tennessee

The “Big Red Machine” just got elected mayor of Knox County, Tennessee–and fittingly, he’s a Republican! On Thursday, Glenn Jacobs–a.k.a. WWE wrestler Kane–won his election to become mayor of the Volunteer State’s third most populous county, racking up 51,804 votes to easily best Democratic opponent Linda Haney’s 26,224 votes. It was a much easier contest for Kane that his Republican primary, which he only won by 23 votes. Kane was one of WWE’s most popular “heels,” described in his official bio as “a monstrous abomination that seems to have been extracted directly from your childhood nightmares.” Sounds like he’s tailor-made for politics!
