WWE wrestler Kane, whose real name is Glenn Jacobs, was on Thursday elected mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, Thursday.
According to Deadline, the wrestler who ran under the Republican umbrella had won the primary back in May by just 17 votes, and immediately became the overwhelming favorite for the gig in the majorly conservative region.
Speaking about his winning, the “demonic” brother of Undertaker, said: “The great thing was, this professional wrestler—and I normally don’t use wrestling analogies for the campaign—but this professional wrestler got into a no-holds-barred, last-man-standing match, and when the bell rung, he was victorious. We were victorious.”

This has stirred interest in his fan base, especially those who have known Kane to be a hell-rising, hyper-violent wrestler when he is pissed off in the ring. They can’t wait to see how this pans out.
Congratulation to him and the Knox County residents!
