WWE wrestler known as Kane wins mayor's race in Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A former WWE wrestler known as Kane has won a "no-holds-barred, last-man-standing" round, this time in the political ring.

Glenn Jacobs went by Kane in the WWE. Now the 6-foot-8, 300-pound Republican has the title of Knox County Mayor.

Jacobs runs an insurance and real estate company and was leading Democrat Linda Haney by a large margin with most of the votes counted on Thursday.

1. Glad to see Glenn Jacobs have a successful life after wrestling

Too many of his colleagues came to a bad end.
