WWE posted the following about former WWF Champion Kane running for mayor of Knox County, Tennessee:
“A very unexpected challenger might be entering the mayoral race in Knox County, Tenn.
Former WWE Champion Kane has filed paperwork with the Knox County Election Commission, which is traditionally a move that predates a candidacy for mayor. However, there are still several steps to be taken before he formally enters the political arena.
The paperwork in question appoints a political treasurer, as reported by NBC’s local Tennessee affiliate. And while that step is typically seen as the starting point of a mayoral run, Kane must first file a nominating petition during the November election cycle to formally run in the May 1, 2018 elections.”
