Kane Says His Wrestling Days Are Likely Over But He Will Still Make WWE Appearances

WWE legend and hall of famer Kane, now widely known as Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs, recently spoke with Lara Trump of ‘The Right View’ to discuss WWE.

Kane last made an appearance for the company at SummerSlam in Nashville, TN where he announced the attendance of the event. He was met with mixed reactions from the crowd as his outspoken republican viewpoints have rubbed some people the wrong way.

When asked if he would ever consider getting back in the ring and wrestle again, Kane said those days are likely over. He said ” I don’t want to get into a wrestling ring and actually get knocked down because I don’t know if I could get back up at this point. But yes, I still do things occasionally. For instance, WWE recently had SummerSlam, which is WWE’s second biggest event of the year at Nashville at Nissan Stadium, where the Titans play, and I announced the attendance for the evening. It’s awesome for me to just go out and still be a part of it. I mean, it’s one of the greatest shows on the planet, and that’s an experience that is unlike any other when you get out there in front of thousands of people and are just able to do something like that.”

He was also asked how people act towards him when they see him in public as many will bring up his wrestling past when he’s making political based appearances. Kane said, “I have folks come up to me and say, ‘Hey, I saw you doing this,’ or ‘I saw you doing that,’ or, ‘I saw you on this WWE special.’ So it really is I mean, it’s rewarding for me. Also, I think I’m able to do some pretty good things in the mayor’s office because of that because of the fame that that has brought. I have a leg up sometimes when I need to get something done in here, and I know who to talk to. I know this person is a wrestling fan, so I can reach out to him. So I try to use that for the best benefit of the people of Knox County through my role as mayor as well.”
