WWE's Kane Becomes Mayoral Candidate In Tennessee

Brock Lesnar Childhood

In a battle Tuesday between the two, it looks like Jacobs, who's running for mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, won. A report by TMB was used for information in this article.

In a final tally posted on the county's website, Jacobs, known during his wrestling career as Kane, squeaked by Knox County Commissioner Brad Anders by a razor-thin 17-vote margin, 14,633 to 14,616. "That's why people voted for him, '" Jacobs, 51, told Knox News. Thomas had a total of 11,296 votes to finish in third place.

He tweeted: "Thanks to everyone who helped win this historic victory!"

Although Kane's campaign manager proclaimed his victory, the official results will be declared next Thursday.

There are provisional ballots to count, and with the race so close, the results are not official yet.

The former pro wrestler will now take on Democratic candidate Linda Haney, who beat her opponent, Rhonda Gallman 7,662 to 1,924. "I'm confident that come tomorrow afternoon, I'll be declared the victor of the GOP", said Jacobs.

Throughout the campaign, Jacobs was joined by several faces from the world of WWE including the legendary Undertaker with others lending support via social media.

The longtime WWE star first announced his serious consideration to run as a Republican candidate for Knox County mayor back in May of 2016. Ventura would serve for four years in the position, with potential presidential considerations mentioned in 2016.
