Glenn Jacobs, better known by his WWE ring name Kane, is the new Mayor of Knox County in Tennessee.

Nearly two-thirds of the 80,000+ total ballots cast went in Jacobs’ favor, as per  Knoxville ABC affiliate WATE. Jacobs was battling Democratic nominee Linda Haney and it was expected that the “Big Red Machine” would win since Knox County is heavily in favor of Republicans.

WWE took to Twitter to congratulate the Big Red Monster on his electoral victory.

This victory of Jacobs turned out to be far better than the Republican primary race, which he won by just 23 votes over Knox County Commissioner Brad Anders in May, 2018.

“But this professional wrestler got into a no-holds-barred, last-man-standing match, and when the bell rung, he was victorious,” Jacobs said while speaking to the attendees at Crowne Plaza in downtown Knoxville. “We were victorious.”

Kane appeared on the pro-wrestling scene in the 1990s, and now stands as one of the longest-tenured performers in the history of WWE. The 6 foot 8 inch monster is a 3-time World Champion and a 12-time World Tag Team Champion. He recently made his return on SmackDown Live and reunited with former tag partner daniel bryan, thus resurrecting Team Hell No.

For more than two decades, Jacobs has been residing in Tennessee where, in addition to his WWE career, he and his wife Crystal Maurisa Goins operate a local insurance and real estate business.

Many WWE Superstars of the past and present traveled to Tennessee during Jacobs’ campaign to help with fundraising efforts, including his kayfabe brother, The Undertaker (Mark Calaway).

Kane and The Undertaker (Brothers Of Destruction) share an epic history that dates back to the glorious days of The Attitude Era.

Jacobs will officially take office on September 1, 2018. The WWE Superstar-now-turned-Mayor assured fans that his appearances with WWE won’t wind down following September. 1.

“After I am elected major, I’ll be mayor. (Though) I may still do a few special things,” Jacobs said according to Knox News. “I’ve done it for 23 years now and have quite a history, it’ll always be a part of my life,” Jacobs added.
