Glenn Thomas Jacobs, better known as “Kane” in the WWE, has been with the company for over 25 years. He is one of the more towering figures known for his mean demeanor in the ring.


The last couple of years has seen Kane take on a more active role in WWE management. He carried a different person with “Corporate Kane,” which initially led many to believe that the “Big Red Machine” may be slowing down. In a way, that could be the case with the company focusing on the young stars.

Kane was drafted to WWE SmackDown, but it doesn’t look like he will be among the main guys the brand will be looking up to for better ratings. He is likely to be one of the mid-card wrestlers unless Daniel Bryan or Shane McMahon have something in mind.

At 49 years old, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if Kane considers a career outside wrestling entertainment. How about politics?

Trying out politics?

In an interview with Rare, Kane sounded off some interest in possibly running for public office. He mentioned that he was hesitant before because of timing. The case seems different now with Kane pointing out the need for change.

“Maybe we need fresh blood and new perspective. I think that’s maybe what people are looking for,” he said. “Maybe this is naive of me, but I do want to make a difference. I want to make every part of the world a better place to be.”

Thanks to Tim Kaine

Kane’s possible entry into politics popped up through Tim Kaine. The running mate of Hilary Clinton got some WWE treatment for his entrance during the Democratic National Convention recently, mashed up with the familiar entrance of the “Big Red Machine.”

Kane seems open to the idea though nothing is sure for now. The only thing certain is that from a big tough guy, Jacobs want to do something different which is to do his part in making the world a better place to be.
