Following in the footsteps of Jesse “The Body” Ventura, WWE star Kane (a.k.a. Glenn Jacobs) announced earlier this week that he is running for mayor in Knox County, Tennessee, Bleacher Report reported.

Speaking to the local ABC affiliate, Jacobs said, “As Knox County mayor, I promise to keep taxes low and make Knox County a place everyone can be proud of….I see my role as that of a facilitator among the different communities in our area.”

Jacobs will likely run as a Republican, according to Bleacher Report.

As WWE wrestler Kane, he held a sort of higher office—capturing three world championships, while playing the role of the Undertaker’s half-brother.
