Kane got beat up by Braun Strowman to close Raw, then held a campaign rally and Jacobs for Mayor on Facebook

Raw was in Knoxville, Tennessee last night (Nov. 27), which happens to be in Knox County, where Glenn Jacobs is running for mayor. You may know Glenn Jacobs as Kane. The same Kane who destroyed Jason Jordan and Finn Bálor before Braun Strowman came out to get revenge to close the show.

So what do you do after getting hit in the throat with a chair? Stop gagging, take off your mask, head to a restaurant with a big bar and rub elbows with potential constituents, of course!

Per a post on the “Jacobs for Mayor” Facebook page:

“What do you do in Knoxville on a Monday Night after WWE Raw? You hang out with 500 of your closest friends until 2:00 in the morning, enjoy some great BBQ and talk about how you're going to work together with every citizen of Knox County to make it an even better place to live, work and raise a family!


Sorry to anyone for whom kayfabe wasn’t already dead, but Jacobs hasn’t been shy about using his wrestling fame to aid his political aspirations, so this is just more of the same - and probably a smart move.

At least we know why Kane left through the crowd - he had somewhere to be.
