Future WWE Hall of Famer Kane, aka Glenn Jacobs, has had a stellar career in professional wrestling, and now he is following it up with a decent run in politics. Kane appeared on the Busted Open Radio this week and talked about his current career in politics, his relationship with Vince McMahon and much more.
Kane said that during his mayoral campaign, he wasn’t shy to accept his career in professional wrestling. He didn’t want to run away from it and instead, wanted to clear the misconceptions that people have about WWE.
“I knew I couldn’t hide from it, I was proud of it, but I also didn’t want it to define who I was. It was a part of my life that we tried to have fun with and tried to open the door. Again, if I tried to ignore it, it wouldn’t have worked so we tried to use it to open the door. But then also we need to have substance so that when I can get people to listen because of the pro wrestling thing, but I also had to make sure that I keep them listening because of what I was saying had substance.”
Kane went on to talk about Vince McMahon, and how he gave his blessings to Kane when he decided to run for Mayor of Knox County. The Devil’s Favorite Demon said that McMahon isn’t heartless as many people consider him to be, and instead, he wants to give more chances to his wrestlers, and help everyone succeed.
“Absolutely. He was one of the first people I talked to about it because I had to have his support, of course, because I was still with WWE. Here’s the thing, Vince wants people to be successful; whether it’s in WWE or outside WWE because it helps his company,
Kane called Vince a business-minded person who always puts his company first. Kane last wrestled for WWE at Crown Jewel 2018, taking on DX with his brother, the Undertaker. Kane’s mayor run means that we won’t get a full-time run from him in the near future.
