Knox County will financially benefit each time it’s Mayor makes an appearance in WWE.

WWE recently announced to make a donation of $100,000 to the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation as per the request of Superstar-turned-Mayor Glenn “Kane” Jacobs.

The organization helps first responders and families that suffer an injury, illness, death or other unforeseen life-changing events.

In a press release sent out to the local media in Knox County, TN, WWE CEO Vince McMahon said:

“We’re happy to support this charity of behalf of Mayor Jacobs.” 

“Much like his unparalleled contributions to advancing the WWE brand during his stellar career of more than 20 years, Mayor Jacobs has begun work to improve Knox County.”

Instead of receiving a paycheck for his upcoming appearances in WWE, The Big Red Machine opted to have WWE donate the money to the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation.

Kane’s upcoming WWE appearance will be at the Super Show-Down pay-per-view at the Melbourne Cricket Stadium in Australia where he will be standing in his kayfabe brother, The Undertaker’s corner in the Last Time Ever match against Triple H (w/ Shawn Michaels). The event is to take place on October 6, 2018.

At this point, that’s the only date Kane is confirmed for according to Jacobs’ spokesman, Rob Link.

“I’m extremely proud that my career with WWE will have a positive impact on the community through my role as Knox County Mayor,” Jacobs said.

The Knoxville Police Department, the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, the Knoxville Fire Department and the University of Tennessee Police Department financially benefit from the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation.

WWE will return to Knoxville for a live event in January, 2019. The check presentation is expected to take place at the house show.
