Thanks to Rare Liberty on Facebook we have video of Glenn announcing his mayorial run for Knox County in Tennessee.
Kane and politics seem to go hand in hand. It’s been known for quite some time that our beloved monster might be leaving the WWE to embark on a road as mayor in his home state. The following was shared by WBIR.
Glenn Jacobs, the East Tennessee businessman who’s gained fame as pro wrestler “Kane”, is planning a “special announcement” Tuesday about his interest in running for Knox County mayor.
The announcement is set for 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, at Sweet P’s at 3725 Maryville Pike in South Knox County.
Bryan Hair, speaking on Jacobs’ behalf, wasn’t quite ready Friday to say what will happen Tuesday.
But he said some of Jacobs’ family and close friends are expected to attend.
“It’s going to be a fun-filled event,” Hair said.
Last month, Jacobs filed paperwork announcing he had a treasurer for a potential run as Knox County mayor in 2018. It’s a required step for candidates seeking office in the county.
Jacobs indicated on the form he’s a Republican.
Hair said the insurance firm operator also plans to attend the annual area Lincoln Day Dinner, set for Friday, April 21, at Rothchild Catering on Kingston Pike.
Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt is the keynote speaker, and prominent state and local party members are expected to attend.
Apollo Crews triumphed in Battle Royal to determine the sixth entrant in the Six-Pack Challenge WWE World Championship No. 1 Contender’s Match
Not unlike Drake on track four of his 2011 album, “Take Care,” SmackDown Live is loving the Crews.
The SmackDown Live locker room looked to prove their worth as they tried to prevail in an impromptu Battle Royal and snatch their ticket to the Six-Pack Challenge WWE World Championship No. 1 Contender’s Match. Bodies flew and dreams were dashed until one name remained. That name was the rising star of the New Era, Apollo Crews, who last eliminated WWE veteran Demon Kane to obtain the victory and live to fight for a championship opportunity later in the show.
Apollo Nation, turn up!

The Wyatt Family def. Big Show, Kane & Ryback
Ryback put the team on his back at WWE Fastlane to deny The Wyatt Family a victory over WWE’s titans. And that, it appears, was enough work for The Big Guy for the time being. Right as The Human Wrecking Ball, Big Show and Kane had maneuvered themselves into the driver’s seat of a rematch with the first family of fear — Bray Wyatt subbed in for Braun Strowman this time — Ryback abandoned his fellow giants entirely as a symbolic gesture of striking out on his own. With Show having been taken out already, last man standing Kane was helpless against the full-force Wyatts, who wasted no time in dispatching The Big Red Monster with Sister Abigail.

After Sting insisted on continuing the match, so Seth Rollins tried to strike quickly with the Pedigree. Sting countered and cinched in the Scorpion Deathlock, but The Architect managed to reach the ropes to escape. When Sting attempted to lock it in again, Rollins countered the submission hold with a decisive roll-up.
While Rollins cradled his WWE World Heavyweight Title, Sheamus’ music hit and he rushed to the ring with his Money in the Bank contract. Hoping to stop the cash-in, Rollins tried to hit Sheamus with the championship, but Sheamus ducked and connected with a Brogue Kick.
Before the bell could ring for the impromptu match, however, an explosion of fire came at the entrance ramp, signaling Demon Kane’s return. Back in his signature mask, Kane stomped to the ring and chokeslammed his former Authority ally Rollins … and Sheamus, before hitting Rollins with a Tombstone to end Night of Champions.
Rollins entered Houston’s Toyota Center with two titles, but he left with two warnings: Sheamus is quickly becoming impatient with his Money in the Bank contract, and perhaps more terrifying, Kane’s inner monster is more awake than ever.

In all the chaos that is WrestleMania somehow this interview from 3 days ago seems to have slipped past us! But regardless, here it is! On the 24th, Kane sat in for an interview with Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling to give what might be one of the best interviews he’s done in recent time.
Here’s just a teaser of it, and you can find the full interview at the link below.
See all the action from Day 2 of WrestleMania 31 Axxess with these exclusive photos.

ShockYa.com, who conducted an interview with Kane months ago, sat down with Danielle Harris to discuss See No Evil 2. In the interview she talked about how Kane did all of his own stunts which you can read about below.
SY: Kane, who you mentioned earlier, reprised his role of killer Jacob Goodnight from the original film. What was your experience of working with him on the sequel?
DH: Kane’s a professional, wonderful and kind. He just shows up and does his job. But unfortunately, he’s one of those guys who always has to perform his own stunts. I don’t have that problem, because I only do my own stunts when it’s needed, and I truly feel comfortable. (laughs) But on this movie, I did do all of my own stunts.
But no one can do what Kane does. He broke through so many doors on a daily basis, and also had to beat the crap out of people every single day. So not only did he have to do all the acting, but he also had to do all his own physical performing.
I guess that’s actually just another day at the office for him, because this is what he does in his daily life in the ring. But he definitely had his work cut out for him in this movie. He’s wonderful, and I really enjoyed working with him. He made my job very easy.
Roman Reigns def. Kane via Count-out
Advantage: Roman Reigns? In advance of The Big Dog’s battle with Daniel Bryan at WWE Fastlane, the two potential No. 1 contenders were set to battle The Authority’s resident giants on Raw. Reigns did his part by knocking off Corporate Kane, though he owes an assist of sorts to Daniel Bryan, who kept instigating “Yes!” chants from the commentary table each time the 2014 Royal Rumble Match winner got his momentum going. Reigns ultimately got the win with a count-out ruling when Kane ate a Spear on the outside at a nine-count. But Bryan’s post-match antics — he set off another barrage of chants to distract from the victory and danced around an irate Reigns in the ring — proved The Big Dog wouldn’t be allowed to rest on his laurels quite so easily.
