We have a winner! Kane is one of the most successful wrestlers of all time, amassing a ton of championships in WWE, including two World Titles. He debuted in WWE back in 1994 and has been around for over twenty three years since, winning one title after another and having one of the most memorable careers in company history. Every career has to come to an end though and that means it’s time to find something new. Kane has done just that, and it’s a big job.

According to Knoxnews.com, Kane has been elected Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee. Kane was elected by a 2-1 margin over Democratic nominee Linda Haney with the majority of the votes in. This will likely put an end to Kane’s wrestling career, though Jesse Ventura made an appearance with the WWF while serving as Governor of Minnesota. Kane’s last match took place at Extreme Rules last month in a loss to the Bludgeon Brothers.

Here’s a clip of his victory speech:

Opinion: This is one of those things that you never expect to see. Kane, also known as the evil dentist Isaac Yankem, Fake Diesel and the Undertaker’s brother, is the mayor of a major American city. It kind of blows your mind to think about it but at the same time he’s often been called the smartest person in wrestling. That being said though, this is a stretch for anyone to have believed, but somehow he pulled it off.

What do you think of Kane being elected? Will he be a good mayor? Let us know in the comments below.
