Glenn Jacobs, Former WWE Star, Wins GOP Nomination in Tennessee Mayoral Primary Race

Glenn Jacobs, the former WWE superstar known as Kane, appeared to have won a mayoral primary race in Tennessee on Tuesday.

Jacobs, 51, was leading Brad Anders by 17 votes in the bid to represent the Republican Party in the race for Knox County mayor, Knox News reported. Jacobs was leading 14,633 to 14,616 with 100 percent of the precincts reporting.

The former professional wrestler declared victory in a tweet thanking everyone who helped his campaign win the Republican primary.

“Thanks to everyone who helped win this historic victory!! The people who cast a ballot for me, my great team, my wonderful volunteers,” he wrote. “Looking forward to VICTORY in the general election!”

Jacobs’ campaign is a far cry from his WWE days wrestling under the moniker Kane – “a monstrous abomination that seems to have been extracted directly from your childhood nightmares,” according his WWE bio.
