Kane Wins Knox County Mayoral Election

Kane, real name Glenn Jacobs, is trading his wrestling tights for a new job — mayor!

The former WWF Champion won the mayoral campaign for Knox County in Tennessee, defeating Linda Haney with 67 percent of the vote to 33 percent.

"I'm just really happy, it's been a lot of work," Jacobs said shortly after the race was called. "I thank my family and all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this happen."

Multiple camera crews, including one from the WWE, were in attendance for the election night party.

"It's pretty awesome, isn't it? And that's the thing I think someone like me brings to a race like this, is the fact that because of who I am I can put Knox County in a positive light nationally," he continued. "And I think that's great, there's so many great things our county, our area has to offer. And frankly the rest of the country needs to know about it."

Jacobs went on to give a passionate victory speech on Thursday evening.
