While he’s infamous for setting Jim Ross on fire and hooking Shane McMahon incident involving a car battery, Kane’s wrestling career was somehow less controversial than his political one.

Glenn Jacobs was elected Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, on the Republican ticket in 2018 and was re-elected in 2022.

This occurred despite Jacobs’ controversial stances on social issues and foreign affairs, as well as accusations of intimidating a fellow Knox County official.

However, those who knew him before the U.S. political space became deeply divided, such as former Brothers of Destruction tag team partner and fellow WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker, offer a different perspective.

On “Six Feet Under,” ‘Taker praised Jacobs as a caring and thoughtful individual, and one of the few involved in politics for unselfish reasons.

“He’s one of the few people, I think, in public office that is doing it for the right reasons,” ‘Taker said.

“He wants to make change and he wants to do things. Whether you agree with his politics or not, that doesn’t matter. But I think in his heart, he’s genuine — I know he is because I know the kind of human being he is.

He’s genuinely being the mayor of Knox County because he wants to make change for people there in Eastern Tennessee. He’s a very smart, intelligent man.”

The Undertaker added that he hopes to have Jacobs on his “Six Feet Under” podcast in the near future.

“The Deadman” is not the only former colleague of Jacobs to commend his intellect. Eric Bischoff once called him one of the smartest people in terms of his understanding of history and world events.

Jacobs last appeared for WWE during SummerSlam 2022 in Nashville, Tennessee, to announce the attendance numbers, after which he delivered his signature pyro spot.
