Former WWE Wrestler Just Won Republican Mayor Primary — His EPIC Theme Music Was Played
Glenn Jacobs, the conservative small business owner best known as the professional wrestler Kane, defeated Democratic nominee Linda Haney in the Knox County mayoral race on Thursday, according to unofficial returns.
Speaking to attendees of his watch party at Crowne Plaza in downtown Knoxville, Jacobs said he doesn't normally use wrestling analogies for a campaign.
"But this professional wrestler got into a no-holds-barred, last-man-standing match, and when the bell rung, he was victorious," he said. "We were victorious."
