The news became viral on this past Tuesday. Former two times World champion Kane made it official on Tuesday speaking to a crowd at Sweet P’s Barbecue and Soul House announced his intention to look for the Republican nomination for mayor.
The 2018 election for Knox County mayor will be for an open seat to replace the current mayor Knox County Tim Burchett. The 52-year-old became mayor of Knox County on 2010.
WWE responded by Kane officially getting into politics;
“A very unexpected challenger has entered the mayoral race in Knox County, Tenn.
Former WWE Champion Kane has officially announced that he is running for mayor of Knox County, Tenn. Speculation began after Kane filed paperwork with the Knox County Election Commission, appointing a political treasurer. Now it’s official.
“This is a great place to work, live and raise a family,” Kane said during a rally. “I want to do my part to make sure it remains a great place and that our future is as bright as ever.”
Congratulations to Kane as he hits the campaign trail!”
Clearly, WWE is very happy with Kane getting into politics as they covered the story on their official website. It can be a major boost for the former two times world champion on his league.
Kane and his wife Crystal own an insurance agency in the Knoxville area. He took time off of WWE later last year to promote his insurance agency. Fans speculated him to be an entrant in the Royal Rumble match but he did not appear.
It might not be a good news for the Kane fans. Kane joining politics means he will now take him aside of wrestling. It is also being speculated that the former two times world champion might retire from wrestling soon.
Team Sportzwiki wish all the best to ‘The Big Red Machine’ and we hope he conquers everyone in his path.
