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.
