It looks like Kane aka Glen Jacob's mayoral campaign was a success in Knox County, Tennessee as he defeated Democratic nominee Linda Haney with 31,739 votes compared to Haney's 16,611 votes.

This makes Jacobs the second professional wrestler to hold public office after Jesse "The Body" Ventura was elected mayor of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota from 1991 until 1995 and also served as the Governor of Minnesota from 1998 to 2002 before choosing not to run for a second term.

Kane got one more run in WWE that finished with him teaming with Daniel Bryan in a losing effort against The Bludgeon Brothers at Extreme Rules. That will likely be the Big Red Machine's last WWE appearance for a long while as he turns his focus to politics now.
