WWE superstar Kane was elected the mayor of Knox County, Tennessee on Wednesday night, according to ESPN.

Kane, whose real name is Glenn Jacobs, was contesting the elections on a republican ticket. He bagged approximately two-thirds of over 80,000 votes in the elections.

The sports-entertainment star was born into a military family and is known for his libertarian views. He has studied English literature in college where he played American football and basketball.

Jacobs has played many characters in the WWE including a dentist by the name of Isaac Yankem before achieving fame as Kane.

This is not the first time a WWE superstar has stepped into the field of American politics.

Hall of Famer Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura was served as governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003.

Former WWE CEO Linda McMahon is serving as the administrator of the Small Business Administration in the Trump government.
